This lady has plenty of readers already, but...

There's this blog I often read called "Toddled Dredge".

An entry written by this Presbyterian mom of young children gave me plenty of food for thought.  One of her statements sums the whole thing up.  "
Being part of a congregation is tough business."

Wow.

It reminds me of a quote from Plato: 
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

When you think about it, it's true; everybody is going through something.

I hope I'll be kinder tomorrow.

It is so true...when we think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence...it is in fact the same grass that grows on ours but maybe a little longer or shorter.  On Ya' - ma

You mentioned her blog once before but I never had a chance to check it out. Glad you reminded me. She's funny!

I read the entry....and agree so much.  You know what's so interesting is that had she have responded to the organist in a snappy way, it would have been a decent snip-fest.....but a response like she had (granted, not towards the organist, but still) had me high five'n her...

Good read, Donna!  Stop pimping great journals, dang it!  My daily reads are getting more and more by the day!  LOL
