This post on singleness from Carolyn McCulley at the Radical Womanhood blog is great. The whole thing is helpful, but this line especially hit me over the head. And because today is Thanksgiving Day, i'm thankful for all of the Godly counsel i get from blogs like hers, and his, and his, and hers, and hers, and hers, and from here, and here. And more too, probably.
