I am in the middle of reading a romance novel right now about a woman who designs wedding dresses in secret because she works as a seamstress for a famous wedding gown designer. She doesn’t want him to find out because she is fearful of how he will react and she thinks she needs this job to survive. Things are happening and all of a sudden she is walking in the calling that God has placed on her life — what she has envisioned for so long. She finally feels like she can breathe again.

and that is where I am at today.

Distance learning methods have changed over the years. From sending modules in the post to classes via livestream, it has enabled many individuals who are not able to be physically present in a classroom to learn about the different topics and subjects that are normally taught only within the four corners of a lecture hall. Providers of online education offer numerous topics of interest, from traditional academic courses such as biology and physics, to the more hip subject matters such as contemporary smartphone photography.

Yesterday I wrote a post about just letting go and stop trying to be the perfect mom, wife, and Christian. The more I pondered on that post, the more I realized that I learned a lot while making homemade pasta with my daughter.

I tend to disagree with many bloggers out there — the ones that say in order for people to be interested in what you are saying you MUST post every single day. I don’t believe that for one hot second. In fact, I have found that in my world, sometimes less is better, because in reality, it’s about the quality of what you write and not the quantity or how much you write. The quantity vs quality issues has always been a sticky subject matter, but here are my thoughts on it.

There is nothing worse than getting cut and having to hid your scars. I remember once when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I was swimming with my family at the lake. I went to hop up on the boat dock and underneath, some wires had been cut and my leg got caught on one. Let’s just say, that 10″ rip in my leg was a very nasty cut. Thankfully, I did not need any stitches, but what was left behind was a very disgusting scar that I still have to this day.

Today’s writing prompt: Beautiful

For the longest time, the word beautiful meant nothing to me. When I looked in the mirror, all I could see was adulterer, sinner, drunk, whore — those were the names that I was called most of my life by the ones who love me and called me friend. I couldn’t hold my head up anymore because of the burdens that weighed me down. Beautiful was something that I was not.

Have you ever watched a baby bird who is just getting its feathers and almost ready to take that big leap in the air, but not really sure? He teeters on the branch raising one leg and then the other. He makes himself stand tall as he flaps his wings checking out to see if they are really going to work or not. He stands there unsure of himself, thinking — “maybe I should, but then again, maybe I shouldn’t. The next thing you know, Momma Bird has come along and shoved Baby bird right out of the nest.

Today’s Topic for Five Minute Friday is Imagine:

Today I look outside and it’s raining. Just yesterday, my homeschool friends and I had a blast with our end of the year party. We played in a pool, enjoyed roasted hot dogs and lots of sweet fellowship time.

It’s time’s like those that my imagination runs wild. I think to myself, what I wouldn’t give just to be that carefree all the time.

Sunday was pretty much a numb day for me. I spent most of that day wrestling with God. I was in a foul mood from the time I got up, but I was really trying to keep it to myself because this was Robert’s day — his graduation day and I did not want any of my meltdowns to have an effect on his special day. So I pretty much just kept quiet.

Later that day however, Stephen said something that I did not agree with to our son, and instead of being quiet, I lashed out at him. Now normally, when I lash out — it is over and done with in just a few minutes. But on this day — because of how I was feeling, I just kept it going and going. For some reason, I just could not let things go.
