Belly Laughs … and … Sacred Wisdom: Because “Sex is Tricky”

Source Unknown but greatly appreciated!

Oh my gosh!  I just had to share this …

I enjoyed one of the hardiest, belly laughs – the kind that tickles you clear down to your soul – when I came across this brilliant post by the incomparable ‘truth teller’ and ‘hope spreader’ who is Glennon Doyle Melton.  And … in the same sacred moment,  was reminded of the delicate balance we straddle when we try to talk with our delightful, precocious, brilliant, young children about how babies are created.

An Advent of Love … Better Because I’m bringing You Home For Christmas Momma!

Those of you who read my “Better Because you Spared Me …” blog will already be aware that Christmas 2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of my Mom’s passing.
