  7. Clear, engaging, and thoughtful. I look forward to reading more of your insights.

  8. Do you mean to tell me that we can’t simply medicate away the human experience? Hmmm….

    Hey Jen: finally took some time today to look at your blog. LOVE IT. I think it is a great way to get “famous” for your book. I’ll buy it if you promise to autograph it.

    Like the Mother’s Day post. I have sent my mother funny cards since I was able to buy my own and not make them out of pink construction paper and glitter. The humorous cards tend to be better at capturing what you are talking about : The mix of perfection and disaster that all mothers are to varying degrees at varying times of life, the year and even the hour. (AND I’ve met some great people when laughing out loud in the stores)

    My girls will tell you that I am “perfect in every way.” Thus, mocking the drive for perfection in all things. “Good Enough”, “Best YOU you can be.” And “Everything in Moderation.” Have been my words to live by. Maybe I’ll get a tattoo
