15 years ago I was 15.
20 years ago I was 10.
and the thought of that had me in a bit of a panic a few days ago. I’m fine now. I think… *twitch*twitch*
I’m trying to collect my thoughts on this particular day. Taking a moment of silence for my sanity that has left me this week.
I’ve been trying not to define the week as an absolute terrible one. In the mist of, first time dentist appointments, loosing teeth, and turning 30…. ALL good things.
we’ve also had the loss of manners, love, respect, and obedience. So we’ve taken away the tv.
its quite interesting….NO tv for X amount of time sure makes for a more quiet evenings in the Clark house.
On top of all of that, I’ve never had to clean up so much puke IN MY LIFE then I had this whole week! my kids couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn door if they were standing a foot in front of it.
so help me….”sanity! where art thou?”
anyways- My life. It is a good one. I’ve been blessed and I try not to take anything for granted. I try to stay teachable and childlike. I try to work hard and stay open for the randomness in life. I try to drink as much coffee and I try to drink it with friends.
Its strange, my life verse is coming to my mind as this moment. I got this along time ago from a very special important person in my church AND in my life.
Pay attention and turn your ear to the sayings of the wise;
apply your heart to what I teach,
18 for it is pleasing when you keep them in your heart
and have all of them ready on your lips.
19 So that your trust may be in the Lord,
I teach you today, even you.
20 Have I not written thirty sayings for you,
sayings of counsel and knowledge,
21 teaching you to be honest and to speak the truth,
so that you bring back truthful reports
to those you serve?
my goal for today is just to enjoy it. spend it with the ones I love and not rush about. Try to enjoy the crazy, chaotic, beautiful, organized mess I call my life.
