I have discovered a new blog that I'm really loving - Like Mother, Like Daughter. And I read something in a post that has been floating around my brain all day. In talking about the environment of the home, blogger Leila writes,
"Your home ought to provide two things for the development of your child. Order and Wonder."
That stuck. Order and wonder. Wonder and order. Two basic needs which must be held in balance. Two concepts which will require work and energy and creativity and prayer to produce. But if Arden can look back one day and say that she experienced both in our home, I will have accomplished something truly great.
Food for thought, I thought.
