Modesty, Retardation, and Gutsy Moves in Faith

Here are some good blog posts I came across today. All three have something in common: they are written with bold honesty by people who love their families.

1. A husband who buys clothes for his wife (because she doesn't buy much for herself) was appalled at the few choices available that were modest enough for his valuable spouse. I always appreciate a man's point of view on this topic of appropriate (and inappropriate) clothing because they tell it like it is.

2. The mother of a special needs child writes about how much the word "retarded" bothers her.

3. The Hendrick family, who relocated from Texas to Haiti about two years ago (?), have suddenly had a change of plans and are back in the States. I've been following this blog regularly (it's on my sidebar) and was shocked to read the news. I wondered how they'd tell their children. This post reveals the gut-level honest, sad, trusting, quivering, blubbering, and courageous way they went about breaking their kids' hearts.
