Blown Away

I was messing around with “Miss Caught in a Windstorm, and Me Without my Hat”, when my oldest child informed me that it was, “incredibly frustrating” to him.


“I mean really… Is it her hair? Is it the wind? What is it?”

“Neither,” I said, “It’s a woman who is overjoyed, overworked, tired, but scared that she’ll miss something if she sleeps. She is blown away by the beauty, the blessing, the craziness and the noise in her life. She’s trying to fly. She’s trying not to look down”

“What’s for dinner?”

Ha! I think your description is lovely LOVELY and I would have said so before I asked you what was for dinner… some of those rolls maybe? From yesterday? Please? Anyway. How long do you think until it morphs into eye-rolling and sighing and maybe even, “Whatever mom… what’s for dinner?” A good long time I hope. She’s a beauty.

He’s started his art critique phase, hey!
When are you starting your Etsy store? I want one of your beautiful creations. I love your new banner – you funky Mama. I can almost picture the four of you roaming the streets, with bear in tow.
