you eat bologna on sunday,
a honeybun for breakfast.
your shoes are filthy with grass and
rain and you beat them on the back
of my seat. i forget how to love, sometimes
you forget how to smile. saying please
is a forgotten art and even thank-you
is scarce. but. but. despite it all
your eyes stay warm, and dry,
and i promise to find a way
to scrounge up something for you
to eat tomorrow, and
one day soon i promise
i’ll remember, i’ll remember
how to love this living again. —how to mother when you aren’t a mother, ii @sellersgrantham | #mywriting
most of you know that Frazee Center is my entire heart and the work they do impacts not only the children fortunate enough to attend the free after-school program, but also their families, and as a result, entire communities.
JL Mann has chosen Frazee as its beneficiary organization for Spirit Week 2017, and IF everyone gets involved and contributes to this amazing work, there is potential to raise up to 40% of Frazee's operating costs for an ENTIRE YEAR. please follow along for how you can help! #frazee#frazeelove

i'm not even an actual mama but. but there are so many times i say, "woah. am i loving them well? am i listening with my heart as well as my ears? and what of teaching. not just academics. do i talk about god enough. and what of goodness. what of how to be a really, really good human being." this (and so much more) is a constant dialogue in my mind. so, when jamius produced these gems after church, i cried for an hour. the best kind of cry.
