21 Sep Cotton candy and lasting pleasure
As I browsed through some of my old files (while creatively avoiding looming schoolwork), I came upon my old life at Transport For Christ (TFC). A ministry for truck drivers, TFC publishes a monthly free magazine called Highway News and Good News. Enter JJ – the editor of said magazine for eight years. I wrote so many essays and articles when I worked there – many editorials were about my children. This one struck my fancy (yes, I just said “struck my fancy”) this morning. Since I have given up, for the time being, writing anything at all that is not related to library programming, I will share this seven-year-old morsel with you today. Be encouraged to stay the course.
My three-year-old daughter recently received a pocketbook from her grandmother. Because she wanted to carry it today on our routine trip to the grocery store, I decided to give Esther some of my loose change to carry with her. Then I gave her the classic speech, “If you are a good girl, you can buy something.”
