The Mundane Is Profound

C. S. Lewis is one of the most quoted authors on Twitter.  As a mother, I especially appreciate his brilliant quotes that remind us how crucial our mundane, day-to-day lives are. I had wanted to become something heroic like a missionary. I was disappointed when I ended up married. 35 years and 9 kids later, I am thrilled that I listened to my inner self, of course.

Catching what I fished for...

My inner voice told me what I already knew. I lied to myself to keep from admitting that I was living with a liar. Then I stopped living with the liar but continued to sleep with the liar and this helped the volume of my conscious to lower…but it was still there. ...more
