I hate school parties.
Yes, I said it.
As I finished putting together the Dollar Store valentines for my kids, I was reminded how grateful I am for women who are different than me. Women who live for things like school parties (cough my friend Lyndse! cough) and who have worked for weeks to make these events special for all the kids in the class. They make my kids’ lives better and I am grateful for their gifts.
One day, I’ll try to return the favor by helping their kids prep for a speech contest or writing a recommendation letter on my fancy letterhead.
One thing I will never do is compare or guilt them for living into their callings. It takes a village and women with all different gifts. We need every one of us living into ours to make this all work. Remember that.
