I 'got' to talk in church today and I mentioned that feeling that I can never live up to the tributes of other mothers that I hear on Mother's Day. Mother's Day is a hard day for a lot of women. This year it's great because I get to talk to my missionary this afternoon! And that's all I need- although the chocolate they gave us at church was a bonus!

Hi Amy-
I'm stopping by from Big Picture Classes. I read about the course you are teaching and want to take the class but I'm in graduate school for Creative Nonfiction and I'm pouring my energy and creativity into words, too. :) I hope when I'm done your course will still be available because it sounds awesome.
In the meantime, I wanted to check our your blog. I love the quote on your header, as well as this post. Both very much resonated with me.

Oh Amy - you never disappoint. I read your posts and most of the time I think 'Yes! Exactly!!' (I sadly did not think that about the 35 layouts). Some input for your guide: yes - gestures mean so much - vacuum my car, wash my car, fold the laundry,etc. No fighting, for sure and I get to choose all television shows for the day (no complaining). Thanks again for your wonderful thoughts. Happy Mother's Day to you - I think you sound like a grand mother and I'm certain your children agree (although they might be 21 before they fully see that).
