Cake, guest bed and parent talk.

Susan emailed to let me know that she'd posted her 'how I found 3BT' story on her blog, Notes from Innisfree. It was mentioned in a sermon at her church -- so thank you to that pastor, whoever you are!

And I had another message this morning: Sandy wanted to tell me about the 1,000 Crane Mission -- a project to release 1,000 paper cranes, each inscribed with a positive word, into the wild. I really love these projects that reach out, hoping to touch the lives of random strangers.

1. My mother appears, and she has some cake.

2. We have guest staying tomorrow night. I hunt down the bag of visitor's linen and make up the bed in the attic. 

3. We have our first NCT class. They separate the mums from the dads to help us mix. We're talking about how we've found our pregnancies. We can hear the dads roaring with laughter next door. "They're just talking about beer and football," someone says. When we are alone again, I ask Nick what they said. "We talked about when it came real for us. I told them about Baby Badger kicking me in the back."


  1. OH, my, Clare, #1 and #3 really touched my heart!

  2. Aww! 3 is just precious! :) I would imagine that would be just the thing to make it all very real. Good luck!

    And thanks for mentioning my project! :)

  3. I actually found out about 3BT the first time from a sermon, too - Whitney of Glimpses of Grace (on your blogroll) talked about her blog in a sermon in Stone Mountain, Georiga and referenced 3BT as the inspiration for it.

    So I was inspired by both of you. It's wonderful that pastors from all parts of the country are preaching about gratitude.
