I'm so excited to be featured in the April issue of Mothers Always Write. Click over to read my essay, "Blue Glass Candlesticks and the Dream of Family Dinner." Here's an excerpt:
Family dinner became a symbol for me of what our family could be, yet I was always failing, too lazy to get my act together and be a real mom. Real moms didn’t hold their babies on their laps during dinner or let their toddlers interrupt. Real moms could time the day so the child wasn’t fussy just as dinner was being made.
While you're there, check out the editor's letter that weaves the essays and poems together on the theme of spring cleaning. It's beautiful! I also love "Lessons from the Past". The whole issue has been such a timely one.
Thanks for reading!
