7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 46

— 1 —   This Week’s Post:  Was He My Last Chance?    Is sexual attraction important?  What influences sexual attraction?  Check out my post next week where I expand on that topic!

— 2 —   Ruthie Dean:  Remember Ruthie and Michael Dean, the authors of the just-released book, Real Men Don’t Text?  Well, Ruthie responded to my email and said she would be open to doing an interview!  I have some great questions but please let me know if you have any questions for her. 

Have you ordered their book?  If so, what do you think? I am about halfway through the book and I will post my review next month. In the meantime, I found this gem by Ruthie.

  3 — No Alone Series:  This week’s  topic was: Can Women Pursue Men?  There were some really good posts with a variety of answers.  I asked Gregg over lunch yesterday what he would have thought if I had been the one to pursue him.  He said that there is a difference between initiating contact and pursuing.  Do you want to know how that discussion went?  I know I am coming late to the party but I do plan on writing a post about it and sharing it in a couple of weeks.

— 4 — Spotlight On:  This week’s spotlight is on Claire from Everything Is Grace for her post in the Not Alone Series where she answers the question, Can Women Pursue Men?  Since it was my fave, you most likely can guess what her thoughts were.  But, don’t guess!  Go here and read her very balanced and honest post!

— 5 —  Strict Mother:  Our son is reading The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  Apparently, the story has an older brother in it who is not always nice to his younger brother.  So, I took the opportunity to point out to our son, who suffers as an only child, that older siblings are not always what they are cracked up to be.  They can sometimes be mean.  This was funny his response:

“Well, since you are such a strict Mother (no offense), I believe that you would be able to keep it under control.  From what I’ve experienced!!”

— 6 —   God’s consolations:  So, this was sort of a rough week in our house.  You know, with a 3rd grader and all.  Just when I thought I was the only one who has a child who is not perfect, God sent me a consolation. I had to be shown that even the sweet and seemingly perfect and responsible children forget to bring their stuff home.  I was  gently reminded of this when I got a call from the Mom of a girl in our son’s class asking me to read their vocabulary words to her over the phone.  You see, her daughter (who seems very responsible) forgot to bring her spelling book home.  And, it wasn’t the first time it has happened since school began 3 short weeks ago.

The amazing thing is that this Mom could have called any of the other 20 parents in the class.  But, the Holy Spirit must have led her to dial my number so that I would know that no one has a perfect child and that I should not expect mine to be.  All you have to do is ask my Mom how responsible I was as a child and you will most likely just receive a sweet smile.  She is very gracious that way.  Not willing to remember anything bad about her kids.  🙂

 — 7 — My Mom:  She is visiting with us this weekend to go to Grandparent’s Day at our son’s school today! I am so excited she is here!  Have I mentioned how wonderful she is?  Really, I could not have been blessed with a more amazing Mother.  I am so thankful because I know that there are many who don’t have good Moms.  She is the main reason I wrote my book and then eventually started this blog.  I had to pass on what she taught me.  When much is given, much is expected.  I have certainly been given much.

God love and bless you!
