“Limitations, properly understood, lead to love.”
I don’t always live as though I believe those words. I would often like to overcome limitations rather than accept them. But those words also might be my favorite line from my book, Small Talk: Talking with my Children about What Matters Most. The book turns 9 today (although the audiobook is only a few months old, recorded by yours truly)!
This is the book I call my parenting memoir, about how I was holding on to my old way of life, then letting go of it all (and making a mess of that) and then growing up into a new way of being.
If you are in a season of spending more time with little ones than you thought you were signing up for, in a time of pressing up against your own limitations and wondering if love could ever be—somehow—related to them, in a moment of feeling like the ordinary hard stuff of life is just too much–Small Talk is for you. You can help me celebrate by buying a copy or sharing word of this book with a friend today!
