The title of Abbey’s blog sums up nearly everything that has been written about parenting small children:
Yes, this work is wonderful. Yes, it is an incredible gift.
And yes, some days it is so hard it feels like pure survival.
I love Abbey’s reflections on life with four kids (including twins). Her writing on faith is deeply thoughtful and always offers perspectives I’d never considered. Since I work for an ecumenical institute, I especially appreciate Abbey’s ecumenical heart and encouragement to seek out our common threads as Christians. I’m so grateful that our paths crossed in this blogging world.
Right now I’m reminded of our “virtual friendship” each night that our kids tear into the Advent chain that she inspired us to start last year. And I always bookmark the ideas she shares for celebrating the liturgical year at home with little ones.
And tomorrow we’ll have stop #3 on the book tour – check back for details…
