I know I have said it before. I am sure that I will say it again and again in my lifetime.
I love to write.
I love it. I really do. There is something so satisfying about sitting down and getting those thoughts in my head out on "paper." It's almost like I can breathe better when I have written something, anything....
I love it.
It's not even about blogging either. Although blogging has certainly furthered my passion. But, I love to write letters (and recieve them too!). One of my favorite things to do is to edit and help students with their papers (especially in this school because writing it is combined with my absolute favorite topic in the world, Our Father in Heaven!). I have more articles and beginnings of books in my head then I can count on one hand.
Almost daily I am writing something in my head. I am serious, I walk around beginning paragraphs and sorting topics into chapters. I have book names and titles to posts.
When I blog, I love to read the comments written back. But truth is, when I am writing I am not even thinking about what others are going to say about it (well, that's not completely true anymore). I am just so relieved when its finally out.
Time is of course the issue. I am a mom of two small kids. I lead a life that is based upon God's agenda not mine. Which means, gone are the days of 9-5 working. I wouldn't change it. Infact I want to enjoy it more and embrace this stage of life in an even deeper way.
Sometimes, though, I just wish I had a couple of hours to empty the thoughts in my head....
