Good stuff

Three bags of apples on a bench

I’m still dealing with the aftermath of the apples, and I’ll I’ve got to say today is that if you haven’t made it over to Life in the Shoe yet, you really should.

Her Wall Words for People Like Us made me laugh out loud.

Here’s just a taste:

In this home
we are family
(even those who lag behind so no one will think they belong)
We do snark.
We do glares.
we do hugs and hugs and HUGS until
we say GAAAAHHH!! Knock it off!  I’m feeling trapped!

And her recent column about a day in prison is a well-told story that touches on the church, cross cultural encounters, and the American penal system.  How’s that for a lot packed into a simple narrative?

Seriously, just read it.
