except the talent of Marie Bellet! I purchased her newest CD as a birthday present for myself. What a wealth of wisdom for Catholic mothers.
If you are not familiar with her music, Marie Bellet is a Catholic mom of nine who lives in Nashville and writes her own music about being a mother and a wife. I am an addict. I have been to two concerts and own all four CDs. Her songs keenly share the joys and struggles of our vocation.
Her latest, titled Everything Changes, includes "This House Is the Place to Be" which ends with:
On the glider, on the front stoop with my tension tamer tea
and the very next song, the title track, begins with:
Whenever I think that I know what I'm doing, everything changes
But my very favorite words come in "How Do I Look to You?":
No I'm not qualified for my own life
Much less a mother and a wife
They all need more than I can give
It's all wonderful. Check out her music! Be inspired!
(I get nothing for my thoughts here from Marie Bellet, Elm Street Records, or any other entity or person)
