Hello, Sisters of Mine!!!
This week is going to be a doozie for me. I come from a long line of professional worriers. In fact, if you don't suffer with anxiety and worry over your children, you must not love them very much. All this is baloney, but honestly, there was a time when I saw worry and anxiety over my family as "normal" for a loving mom. It was all I knew. It was a shock to my system to discover that anxiety and worry were actually sin!!!
How many of you have suffered with the French philosopher Montaigne (whoever he is) who said: "My life has been full of terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened"? I will be the first to raise my hand! I have spent sleepless nights worrying about symptoms I was absolutely sure would kill me by morning...along with various other vain imaginings. Right about now, those of you who know Peter are feeling a great deal of compassion for him:) and it is justly deserved.
So, girlfriends, what are thinking about as you work through this chapter on "Courage"?
Love to you all!!!
