I wrote this about a week ago, before the election. With Facebook and the media melting down, I decided to take a break. I adopted the "glitter bomb" approach, which is to quickly find something positive and happy, share it, then run. It's worked out pretty well for me. Until we've fully processed what I'm calling The Election (capitalization is very important to me), we won't be speaking about it here. We're gonna talk about something I do have a little bit of control over.
I just finished reading Glennon Doyle Melton's book "Carry On Warrior" (she is also known as Momestery), and, let me just say, I cannot write like her. But every so often, I come across her sentences and I have to stop because, like me, she hides her pain under a thick coat of humor and she just gets it. A lot of it is on parenting so I don't really understand yet, but it helps me understand my mom a little bit more. Which is not always good, because I am a protector. Protect
