Feminists for Life

If you're a happily voting, free-to-be you woman, take a moment and thank God for Susan B. Anthony. After you're through with that, take another moment and consider that not only was she pro-woman, she was also pro-child. Beginning in the womb. Check out this wonderful stuff for sale at Feminists for Life...especially the Susan B. Anthony quote on the mug.

I love their key phrase on the website - "There has to be a better way." We CAN be both pro-woman and pro-child.

something to think about...

"Strange, this love announced by our Lord turns all of life right. To love others is to fill our own empty spaces." - Thomas A. Becket c. 1118-1170

Our Girlie Scarecrow

Our wonderful friend, Shelley, created the bare bones of this awesome scarecrow, and Feistygirl and I glammed her up. She's wearing my clothes and after we'd dressed her, Feistygirl said, "She looks like a Mommy." I said, "Yeah, she looks like YOUR Mommy!" Kind of eerie how much she looks like me...
She is now up to her armpits in snowdrift. Poor thing. Feistygirl frets over her every time we go outside. She named her Lily after a favorite cousin.

I also think they should be short. And rejuvenating.

What's yours?
