Like Visiting a Long Lost Friend

I haven’t been on here in such a long time it’s taken me hours just to clean all of the cob webs off my dashboard! Sheesh! Truth be told I have once again succeeded in letting everything and everyone come between me and my writing. I hate when that happens but we all know…sometimes that’s just life! With 7 kids, a deployed husband and 2 jobs on my plate writing is always put last in the food chain. I’m thinking it needs to not be anymore. Writing is what keeps me sane…helps me remember who I am in the midst of all of the craziness life has to offer. It’s the one thing that is mine. Just mine…and I guess well, now yours too. But don’t worry, I don’t mind sharing!  😉

Life has been…well, challenging to say the least. Some days are better than others but all in all it’s been a tough row to hoe. And I know there will always be someone else who has it worse than me but at this particular moment in time things in my life are difficult. And as I deal with each challenge one by one I realize that there is no way in hell I can do this by myself. I remember a poem that was given to me by my mom when I was a teenager called “Let Go and Let God”. Anyone who knows my mom knows she’s not the sentimental type…she’s very passive with her emotions, so for her to give me a prayer card with that particular prayer on it during my teen years was her way of giving me the advice she never knew how to give me. Let go and let God…really, it’s all the advice any of us ever need, right?  I  take every care, every single worry in my life and I lay it at the feet of Jesus and just pray with all my heart and soul that He will show me the way He wants me to go. And ya know what? For the past 20 years that is what has kept me going. Sometimes the only thing that has kept me going. Amazing how a 25 cent prayer card can impact a life, huh?

Writing for me is like visiting an old friend. And I have some great friends…you know who you are, ladies and gents!  😉  But at the end of the day I have to say that writing and God are the two best friends I’ve ever had. I really should visit them both more often…
