We're getting ready to crack the books around here! Hubby and I interviewed with a different homeschool co-op last night. It was a necessary formality, even though we "came highly recommended" - they said. What an amazing miracle! "Hallowed be Thy name" - the Lord's Prayer says... I first realize what came with a name when I left my parents house at 19. When I ran into someone at the grocery store or the mall, I was recognized as Don & Kay's daughter. People would say, "Your parents are so wonderful... they took me in when I had no where to go..." I had a good reputation by association. When I got pregnant, married someone with a darker reputation, I started to be known more by the behavior of my young husband and his partying friends. After the divorce, I couldn't deny that my OWN behavior had been pretty dark as well. Making new friends and overcoming a reputation is like walking up a slippery slide. Funny how the slippery slope wasn't so difficult on the ride down. After I met my current husband and he gave me his name, my credit was repaired, my family name was good again. I worked hard but there wasn't any way to change the name I was known by until I was given a new name. What an amazing miracle that now 11 years later, I have come "highly recommended"!
