Reflections on Motherhood, the CBMW, and Almost Losing My Son
Thank you for sharing this... my eyes and heart are full of gratitude for your son’s safety and your willingness to speak truth as a woman of God. You answer to God, not to some acronym’d council.♥️
Beautiful reflection; how right you are that the opinions of others matter so little when compared with the safety and health of our loved ones. Wishing you many, many more meals with four plates.
So very, very thankful there are still four plates. Life can be very fragile.
Oh my goodness. What overwhelm that must have been. Thank you for sharing this piece of your life and heart with us. So grateful your son is alive and well!
What a miraculous mercy! So grateful he is ok. May the peace of the Lord surround you all. Thank you for sharing this tender moment with us.
Last night 7 women sat around my dining room table. Sal asked me "what did you do today?" Later in the conversation she began talking about this curiosity she has about the ordinary. Four plates. How she forms questions about the usually unnoticed because of the story underneath. The God miracles that go unrecognized. The thanksgiving prayers that won't get said. Your seeing four plates is powerful. Thank you for giving us your heart today.
So glad your son is ok! And you’re right, a desire for women to be free to be fully human doesn’t mean we can’t be maternal as well. I’m in my last year of my MDiv and have four sons. Crazy to think that blows people’s minds.
That's a lovely reminder to cherish the magic of ordinary days. So glad your son is fine!
Wow. I'm so thankful. I will pray for your son to recover and find good trauma counseling or any physical help he needs, too. All of you as well. That is traumatic. But, that you were able to see this message for you and share it with us--thank you for that, as well.
That was utterly lovely. I'm so grateful your son is safe, and so is the other driver. I think your way with words, the God-given power and beauty of your expression, and the clarity of your thought enlightened by faith, explain why those devoted to perpetuating falsehoods find you so threatening.
This is so uplifting. Thanking God with you for his mercy. I'm a fan-girl, dear Professor, Mom, Wife and Author Beth Allison Barr. Keep on doing what you're doing. With sincere thanks.
Thankful to God for protecting your son and your family and the other driver too. And thankful for your embodiment of a mother who loves her children deeply and a feminist who loves Christ, the Bible and the Church deeply too.
Thank you for sharing this incredible and miraculous story with us! And for once again, sharing your heart.
So grateful your son survived this scary incident! April 12 is my birthday! What a day to celebrate life! Sending love to you and your family.
When my daughter was a high school senior she was in a car accident just like your son, flipped car upside down, the works. And she walked away as well, so I understand this deeply as a mom.
