“You should start a blog!”
So said those most unbiased of observers, my mother and my sister. “You’re a good writer! And your life is like A Prairie Home Companion! And Zoe is so cute!” I will admit, at least two of these three statements are true.
My life is like the news from Lake Wobegone, at least some of the time. I go to pie and ice cream socials. I wave at every car I pass on the country roads, whether I know who’s driving it or not. I stop by the funeral home to say hello, steal a cookie, and use the fax machine. If I leave my car door unlocked, I just might find a few garden tomatoes or a bagful of clothes and books for my daughter inside.
And that daughter, two-year-old Zoe, is obviously the cutest, smartest, funniest, most amazing two-year-old the world has ever seen.
And so, in a week when my sermon is struggling to be written and I have a million other things I should be doing, I did it! I started this blog. Thanks for reading it! My mother and my sister and I all appreciate it.
