E.M.’s Sunday Ramble

Here are the questions:

  1. The greatest feeling in the world is when I: think about when my kids were little and how sweet and kind they both were. They were both so cute and never fussy. I was so lucky to have such good children.
  2. The one thing that I misplace more than anything is my: tape measure. I swear I have a bunch of them but whenever I need to measure something I can’t find a single one! Also, my craft scissors. I only use them while at my work bench but must carry them off in a daze!
  3. When I am stressed out, the one item/person/thing that always makes me get back to feeling okay is: either David or Lindsay. David is always available to talk to. He is a great listener and always has something kind to say. Lindsay is more of a “get my shit together” type of support. She helps me see reality.
  4. When I am sick, the only thing I want is: a Coke if I am stomach sick, my bed if I am feverish, and a box of tissues if I am runny and/or stuffed up.
  5. Whenever I feel like I am procrastinating, I fix it by: getting a bunch of things done. I make a list and make sure I try to check it all off. I secretly cannot stand procrastinating and find myself keeping my lips tight when I notice someone else around me doing so. Why not just get done what needs to be done and then guess what?!?!?! Yes, you’re done!

Just a few extras to go with the rambling…..

My heart melts when I look at my dog and he is standing with his little front feet pigeon-toed!
My heart aches when I think about my son.
My heart beats crazy when I see David after a long day apart.
My heart calms when I hear happiness in my daughter’s voice.

Quiet Strength

She shouldered the burden but laughed at the dawn
With arms stretched wide as mists rose off the lake
She had no fear of what was to come or what would appear again
So she awoke with a blur, feeling life from her head to the tips of her toes
Knowing she had the strength to conquer even the quiet demons that whirred around her.
