...because we all have our motley moments!

Monday, January 19, 2009


I can't help but wax politically today. The kids are out of school today observing Martin Luther King Day, and tomorrow, we will all witness an incredible day in history.

Most known for his "I have a dream..." speech, Dr. Martin Luther King inspires us still today. If he were still alive today, he would be 80 years old. Here are a few more of his quotes:

"All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence. "

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. "

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase. "

In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's all welcome a new motley mom to our group - Michelle Obama. Regardless of how you voted or what you hoped would happen, she will soon be moving into the White House and taking over the role as first mom. She will probably never post here or darken our doorways for coffee. We may not agree with what she wears or says or how she raises her two daughters, but we can still support her in our prayers.

Well said Pam!
There is a big difference between agreeing with someone and respecting someone. The new first Lady is going to need our prayers! Thanks for the reminder!

What a job she has, too...every decision she makes for her daughters, herself, the dog, the school, the wardrobe, everything will be scrutinized, magnified, and judged. I don't envy her the pressure of all the eyes, ears and tabloids she will contend with.

Prayers for the First Family will definitely be offered up in our home.
