Through the day I find inspiration everywhere and I think “that would make the best blog post” and mentally file it in my “writer’s file”, anxious to get to my computer to put it down and then…
the day goes so fast
one thing to the next
the day is over
and I start dinner
and switch the laundry
and the kids are ready for
and just one more story
and just one more one more
and then I study
or share a movie with Darcy
and finally open my computer
and write about three sentences
before I fall asleep with my computer on my lap
and wake up
the next morning and smile
knowing that someone who loves me
closed my computer for me
put it away
put my glasses in their case
and I start the day.
And that’s what life is. One moment into the next. And that’s what I love writing about the most.
Not missing those moments.
I’m not the best blogger.
I’m not the most successful blogger.
I’m not the most consistent blogger.
Some weeks I’m the completely MIA, maybe we should call her to see if she is still alive blogger…
But, every week, I am the most consistent story reader, scraped elbow kisser, duct tape fixer, pancake cooker, ballet bun maker, barbie hair braider, husband’s missing items finder, hug giver, in my house.
And in those things… My page rank is
out of sight.
Let this post be an encouragement to you to never lose a real moment for a cyber one.
The days go so fast…and then they are gone.
Live an inspired life.
Starting right now, in this new year.
