i posted a link to my favorite heart-breaking, thought-provoking blog today. go read today's post on Momastery, entitled "nets". a sweet friend commented with the following: "this resonates with you because you are always willing to be a net, for anyone. really. i'm not the only one that believes this, so think about that.... the next time you feel skinless." i will carry that beautiful compliment in my heart. it is one of the best things ever said to me. thank you, n, for thinking this of me. I feel loved.
