The past month has been a rather besieged time for my little family...just lots of day by day learning with some health issues in the family and all the big feelings that come with that, for which all the normal duties of living and earning do not slow down.
A giant bright spot was when a certain Speaker did not have the votes to pass a certain horrible mangling of our health care.
That was such a victory.
We are doing it, Mamas. We are making progress. We must persist.
We all know they will try again but we will be ready for them again.
Even when the kids are puking and sniffling and the sleep it is hard to come by, we persist.
Even when we find our selves using war metaphors although we are Quakers and this disturbs us, we must persist.
Persist, persist, persist.
