Recently, I met an interesting fellow female writer and blogger at a media event. We got to talking about the ongoing balancing act of being a wife, mother and career person. She’s just written about our conversation on her own blog, Dusty Earth Mother. It’s a fun read, even if it is about me. She calls me a heroine. I’ve been called a lot of things in my life, including by my children, but that’s the first time I’ve been called a heroine. I appreciate it.
