General Musings

Whoa. I just checked in on a Yahoo group for women who chose to be single mothers, and they have more acronyms than the US Military. TTC, dpo, RE, BFN & BFP, AF…the list goes on. No, really, there’s a list. The moderator sent one out when she accepted my request for membership. Guess I better get used to it. Maybe I should come up with some of my own, like:

  • YAOOYM: You Are Out Of Your Mind–common response (or look) I receive when sharing my intended journey
  • BBE: Baby Bump Envy
  • NKF: No Kids Freedom–what people with kids tell us childless folk we should be grateful for
  • EP: Emotional Porn–includes A Baby Story, Adoption Stories, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition…any show guaranteed to induce tears of joy, sadness, heartache, or all of the above and then some

I’m going to try and start working these into my life. Are there any I missed?

I'm a pastor. I believe in radical love and ridiculous grace. I love to sing and sew, and have a shop on Etsy. I'm trying to make my ecological footprint smaller. I have chickens who provide endless entertainment. Oh, and I'm a formerly single mom by choice, son E (born 6/00, placed 11/23/11, adoption finalized 11/21/14) and now making a life with The Dude and his two kids, Girl-E (12/02) and C (9/04). Baby Bumpy due to arrive around 5/25/15! This blog chronicles my thoughts on faith, family, and the wild adventure we call Life!
