You, me, + Dorothy
YAY!! This is the best news to find in my inbox this morning.
Quick story: my daughter is named after Dorothy Day (Norah Day) and my son is named after Superman (Kal, referencing Kal-el, Superman's Krypton name. Thanks, husband.) We were watching an animated Superman movie for family movie night, and my husband was telling my son all about his namesake. This led to my daughter asking about her namesake. I love Dorothy so much, but was worried that she wasn't going to seem as glamourous as the action hero we were watching. My husband, however, had the perfect response: "You know, Dorothy Day was a lot like Superman. She didn't always know where she was supposed to belong, but that never stopped her from trying to always do the right thing. She always put the needs of others first. And she saved a lot of people, just like Superman. She's like a real life superhero." The good thing was that my daughter was super excited about her name sake. The bad thing was having to explain to both kids why we don't ask Superman to pray for us.
I am looking forward to this! Last year's read along did not disappoint and I expect to be educated and challenged as much as I was with the Abigail Favale book.
Looking for something to help me re-connect. Excited for this opportunity.
I'm excited about this! I started The Long Loneliness years ago and didn't finish because my third child was born and interrupted my reading. 🙃 This gives me a good reason to get back to it!
I am so excited for this, Claire! It's been on my TBR list!
So excited for this! My summer is going to be pretty hectic (2 weddings + a move across state lines) BUT I recently read "The Long Loneliness" so it should be a little easier to keep up with!
Just ordered, looking forward to it!
