The Excellent Wife Needs Friends {Douglas County Moms}

I'm keeping real today over at Douglas County Moms.  If you ever feel like you don't measure up or could never be like one of THOSE MOMS, then you need to read this...
We sat around the living room, wood stove warming the house and casual conversations melting one woman's heart into the one beside her over a book called, “The Excellent Wife.”
Our children were toddlers and we concerned ourselves with healthy snacks, appropriate bedtimes, how many episodes of Veggie Tales were acceptable in a sitting, and how we were going to be as good as the super mom seated beside us.
I cried that day.
I cried because I wasn't as diligent to pre-plan meals, organize homeschool material, or research organic versus non-organic bananas...
That's the excitement in obedience, finding out later what God had in mind.” - Brother Andrew, God's Smuggler
