My Hope...

is that one day Shawn can say this about me.

John Adams said/wrote this about his wife (Abigail, for those who somehow don't know that)...


"the delight of [his] heart, the sweetener of all his toils, the comforter of all his sorrows, the sharer and heightener of all his joys. In all his struggles and in all his sorrows, [her] affectionate participation and cheering encouragement... had been his never failing support."


I just finished reading Abigail Adams: Witness to a Revolution by Natalie S. Bober. I thought it was great. She was a fantastic woman and a very supportive wife - even though it was hard (I mean, hello?!? they didn't see each other for 5 years and it took FOREVER for mail to get back and forth).


I want Shawn to think this of me, too. Knowing him, those words might never be said out loud :)


Hope, hope, hope...

    She was an amazing woman- read John Adams by David McCullough- it was really good and well written, interesting. Gives a lot of insight into what HE was doing all that time too!

    Glad you enjoyed it! She was a fascinating woman and I am grateful that they were both such prolific letter writers so we have all that history. She is a good role model for sure!

    I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally eduсative аnd еngaging,
    аnԁ wіthout a doubt, уοu hаve hit the nail
    on the heаd. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women аrе
    speaking intelligentlу аbout. I am very haρрy I found this during my hunt fοr something relаting to this.

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
    there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
