Writers just gotta write. I talked to someone recently who asked if he could be considered a writer. He's written extensive essays on various topics and enjoys it very much. He replied, "Don't you have to get PAID for writing to be called one?" I didn't even have to ponder that one. NO.
Often I write because I just don't want my thoughts to stay in my head. I have to get them out somehow and then see it in written form. A way to sort things out. And often my best thoughts don't end up in a blog in a public forum because they are too personal and just for me. BUT BOY ARE THEY GOOD! (smile)
Today was just an ordinary day though. Full of activity. My broken ice maker saga came to an end after finally getting a repair person who knew what they were doing. But the hot water heater conched out too and a repairman came and fixed that as well. He came the same day I called. That never happens... not to ME anyway. So Yay! Back in business. I also fixed my counter bar stools... Though they won't be the swivel kind anymore, they work and look as good as new... and I saved a few hundred bucks from buying new ones! Yay again.
I had a dopey moment this morning in Target when I realized not only did I not have my reusable bags for my purchase, but I didn't have my wallet either! I probably do this about once a year (forget my wallet) and today was my day! E M B A R R A S S I N G !! I guess all things work out for the good though, because after telling my mom about it she said, "You always make me feel better".... Uh.... ok.... thanks.... I think. That's not the first time I shared a story of my goofiness and had someone tell me I make them feel better about themselves!!
Glad I can help!
So as I sit outside now with a homemade biscotti that I just accidentally dropped into my hot cup of coffee, I am thankful. Thankful that no matter what we do as long as it's done with a clear conscience and in love things will be okay. Don't let anyone ever make you feel "less than" or as though you don't measure up to their standards. No one walks in your shoes except... you. Do what you believe is right and LIVE... And try to have a forgiving heart. And for goodness sake, learn how to laugh at yourself. I've heard if you do you'll never run out of things to laugh about!
Love always wins.
