The weekly “little of this, little of that” feature from Like Mother, Like Daughter!
I’ve been meaning to tell you: thank you again for responding to my request for prayers for Amy’s mom several weeks ago. I’m happy to say that she is doing much better – she is out of a coma and her family is joyful!
This week I’ve been a little sad, as my dear friend lost her brother (a young man about my age) when he was hit by a vehicle (in South America) that ran a red light on Wednesday. If you could take a moment to pray for his soul and for his family, I’d appreciate it!
- If you’re a mom of an infant or might be one at some point, or if you ever hang out with moms of infants, or if you ever babysit… you might be interested in knowing how to identify a tongue-tie. This one little issue can certainly cause trouble in the eating and thriving department! This blog post from Mommypotamus provides a thorough walk-through.
- Apparently – and mysteriously – the North Star is getting brighter!
- A friend shared a link for A Screwtape Letter for the Unappreciated Mom and boy did I find it a truthful jolt. It’s always a helpful thing to be reminded that it’s a daily task, as another friend of mine once put it, “to roundhouse kick satan in the face.”
- Of course if you’re not already familiar with the original C.S.Lewis work The Screwtape Letters, then do get your hands on a copy! It’s a classic.
- Speaking of good ole Clive Staples, Auntie Leila suggests The Christian Cosmology of C.S. Lewis from the American Conservative.
- Do you know someone who might benefit from, you know, an apprenticeship in swordsmanship? Pretty appealing, one must admit. The Artist suggests that this might be a good occupation for a teenage son you don’t know what to do with – send him off to learn the craft and then he can come back and defend the home.
- By the way, juuuuust in case you missed the big news from this week: the book by Auntie Leila and David Clayton (with some drawings by yours truly) is available for pre-order!
