Why am I posting about this?
Well, tonight, I also have a greater resolve to share what I am learning each week on Raising Rubies. Last year as I taught this class, I was dealing with my worst case of morning sickness. I wanted so badly to post something from class, but I could barely keep up with life. After preparing to teach each week, there was nothing left of me to give to something outside of my family. So Raising Rubies sat untouched most of the time, despite my desires, and despite a lot of inspiring thoughts on family issues rolling around in my brain. It was a little disappointing, but I knew I had limitations. And I knew my commitment to the classroom superseded my commitment to the blog. My greatest commitment of course, is always to my family.
Tonight, I am making a commitment. This is a little scary to do. But I thrive on goals and deadlines. So I'm giving myself an assignment this semester to post something from class each week. I'll try to highlight what will be most beneficial to you by sharing the things that were most meaningful for me. I hope you enjoy!
