To mothers in the United States and around the world you have my respect and admiration. This is a time to recognize those who play the role of mother in various forms. Mothers are biological, adoptive, spiritual, surrogate and so much more. For some, this is a difficult time because of the nature of their relationships with their own mothers so I hope they have found someone to fill in. Grace and peace and love to you all.

Settling On Something

It’s hard to settle on something when you wanna experiment with everything. There are all sorts of cool things that are worth trying out and it makes it hard to decide on one thing you like above all else. Clothes, shoes, electronics, makeup, food and so much more are all things that make one curious and adventurous. There does come a time when you need to settle down and stick with something. It is worth it to see what is out there but you can’t do that for very long because the number of your days is growing shorter by the minute.

A Careful Balance

It’s good to have a careful balance of madness and magic in your life. A fellow blogger helped point that out to me today. We all need to be crazy when called upon but we need to make special things happen and to do magic when needed. I am a believer in magic that comes from ordinary things happening to make things better. Without it we are all in a bit of a quandary in life.

Be magic, be mad, be yourself!

Something About Titles

Titles are words but they have meaning and the weight of responsibility behind them. When you have a title it means you have achieved something, you have moved upwards. A title means you have been affirmed by those who have noticed you have worked hard and are doing good things.

Some titles are earned by competition against your peers like in civic life or athletics. People work hard to have the title of champion, best in show, best actor/actress or something that elevates you. One’s self-esteem can be impacted by that sort of thing.

Your resume is boosted by having titles that show you have worked your butt off. I have had titles come and go in my life and there is excitement and achievement when you earn them but when they have been stripped away you feel like you have taken steps back. 

Of course titles can be what you call something you created. However that is for another post.

​”Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.'”

(Matthew 25: 44-46 of The Holy Bible)
