    Anne Lamott is one of my all-time favorite writers. She speaks truth with humor - which is a very difficult thing to do. I got hooked with Traveling Mercies - one of my favorite quotes goes something like, "It's enough to drive Jesus to drink warm gin out of the cat's dish." (Some days, that cat dish is looking awfully good ;-))

    And, then she did a riff re President Bush that went something like, "I finally realized I have to love him, not have lunch with him." And so it goes.

    Yes, I loved that line about Bush as well. It applies in alot of places.

    It reminds me of another distinction that I've been making recently--acknowledging vs. embracing, as in "I acknowledge your frustration but I don't embrace it."

    Thanks for stopping by, Mary.
