this is me.
my sons are sick and so they are doing a star wars marathon (obviously)
i am sitting here.
thinking about my blog.
yes, i'm dressed.
i got this dress at forever 21 yesterday.
it was 24 bux.
the large fits me perfectly (unlike most forever 21 items that fit over my (agh-hum) lower area quite snuggly.)
it's lined with super soft knit cotton.
it feels like jammies.
(plus i can never wait to use something new...i always have to wear/use it right away.)
yes, my nails are painted the same color as my surrounding kitchen.
yes, i have a lot of freckles.
they show up even more when i picnik my photo and turn up the grittiness.
(yes, i picnik my photos of myself)
so here i am, in my kitchen that matches my nails and wearing my new cheapy dress...getting ready to clean up throw-up all day.
this is my life and this is what i feel called to.
at this point, i don't know if i feel called to blog for any particular reason.
i don't feel a calling toward a certain ministry or mission for my blog.
except to be as real as i can.
to be me and not be too worried about what everyone will say.
to give what is mine to share.
it's mine because it's been given to me.
so why not keep up the giving by blogging about it?
this is not new.
this is what my blog has been about since....probably this post.... but for sure by this post.
but with a lot of talk of missions and purpose at and around blog sugar, i started feeling like i should have some kind of big change.
it's easy to look around and see another's beautiful purpose in life and want to jump on or even wish it was yours.
but the more i think about it, if i feel called to honesty, i have to say that my call is being myself (God's lovely messy little lady) and being a wife and sister and mother.
nothing else is pulling me...yet.
so maybe that's the answer.
i am just God's babygirl.
lots of areas to grow.
lots of life to live.
trying not to get ahead of myself or do things to appear super together for some dumb show.
i did like blogsugar.
i'm glad i went.
it was a good challenge for me.
and i loved seeing some faces that i already loved.
(you girls know who you are)
but now i'm here, getting ready to go get prepared for a guest post for a lovely lady.
same reed life.
hope that's ok with you.....
