Just as a conversation suffers in a war zone, art suffers in a culture built on noise. So does our enjoyment of it.”

    Thanks for link up and for the link to Steve’s post. He put into words my exact feeling about everything I have to do each day, even if my son usually is a true delight. Gosh… there are those moments where I just don’t have it.

  • Lindsay

    Great links, Sarah! I can’t believe they missed how YOU doin’?

  • amber@therunamuck

    I may cry every other day at least because of how you bless me.

    I listened to the Disney Parody this AM and now I have the “Prince Ali” song stuck in my head. LOL.

  • Stephanie Precourt

    So I was just linked to Steve’s post by a friend in Ohio that doesn’t even blog LOL and then see you already have him here. I really needed that right then. Love your links.

    That post of Ann’s put into perfect words everything I have been thinking and feeling and struggling with, especially over the past few weeks. Thank you for sharing it, Sarah. xo
