Day 162 – Proud Mama Moment

Proud mamaMy kids make me proud every day. I am profoundly blessed in that category.

But some days your chest just puffs out that much more. Those days when they accomplish something beyond what you thought they could do. And they are so happy.

So you want to shout it to the world.

And in there lies the dilemma.

Where is that fine line between being proud vs bragging to the point where no one wants to listen?

Because there is that line. And I’m pretty sure I have probably crossed it a number of times. But it is difficult when you are proud. All you can do is try your best to remember those around you. Keep it humble when you can.

Bragging to grandma and grandpa is the perfect place!

You can write a blog too and then sneak a picture of your son in a Canada jersey just so you can brag a little bit.

And the rest of the time, keep the following in mind:

“Who knows himself a braggart, let him fear this, for it will come to pass that every braggart shall be found an ass.” William Shakespeare

“Burning Bright” by Tracy Chevalier

Burning BrightI love Tracy Chevalier books. Her style keeps me intrigued and is always some great history. In Burning Bright, it is the end of the 18th century London. When country boy Jem Kellaway befriends street savvy Maggie Butterfield, we get to see London from the tough side of London through the eyes of these two children and their relationship with William Blake, the poet.

“Rising Sun, Falling Shadow” by Daniel Kalla

Rising Sun Falling ShadowsRising Sun, Falling Shadow is the sequel to The Far Side of the Sky by Daniel Kalla, which I reviewed earlier this year. It is now 1943 in Shanghai. Dr. Alder and Sunny are trying to keep the hospital open for Jewish refugees. They are moved into the slums and it is a constant battle for survival. I enjoyed both of these books by the Canadian author.
