If you read the post on the Gift of Friendship, you might be interested in the post at Keeper of the Home's blog. Stephanie had a similar question asked of her and she gave some very practical and very helpful tips for dealing with this dilemma. I am very grateful to have found this blog post. I must admit, talking about this to my husband and some of you has helped a great deal. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.
Take a look at Stephanie's Blog, I'm sure you'll be encouraged by it. Enjoy.
