I’m feeling not so great in so many ways for a variety of reasons. Thankfully my dear sister-in-law Martha is here, and she’s graciously picked up some slack. I hope I can do the same for her another day. The children are blessedly distracted, for the most part, although I have sick ones who want to be held more than normal.
I started reading Little Pilgrim’s Progress to David. He’s enjoying it, and I did have opportunity to discuss Pilgrim’s “burden” a little bit. Normally I’m not a fan of adaptations of literature, but I think this one is well done and appropriate. By presenting the story from a child’s perspective through a young “Pilgrim,” Helen Taylor really does make the meat of the story (the whole point) accessible, rather than just the adventure story in the original version.
I’ve enjoyed the recent comments, and hopefully I’ll get a chance to respond this weekend! Thanks for all your prayers on our behalf.
