Morning Meanderings… Friends Are Real Life Characters In Our Lives

Good Morning.

I feel… exhausted.

Not a good way to wake up… but there it is.  AND it has hung over me for a little over a month now.  Just a lot of stuff going on… some good, some bad, some sad…


Anyway – once again as I have trudged through these days I am reminded I am not alone and many of us are “trudging” through our own things. 

On the bright side in the past few weeks I have had some time to spend with some of my friends and really… are they not sometimes these paranormal beings with magical powers?  My friends can heal, can make tears turn to smiles, make a mountain… feel like a power hike when they walk beside me…

and in turn, I like being that kind of friend back.

Just something I have been thinking about as of late as I flip through the chapters of my life story…. even each of you have a place in my book. 

What happenings in my reading adventures?  I am spending time with 14-year-old La Vaugn as she is taking care of Jolly’s kids in Make Lemonade by Virginia Euwer Wolff.   I am also sitting in an abortion clinic with Dynah and her mother as they ponder what should be done when a child is produced out of a rape in The Atonement Child by Francine Rivers.

Hope everyone has a lovely Wednesday.  I have a full one… which is good….

  1. Oh, The Atonement Child sounds good! I love how you casually dropped the plot lines as if you were talking about your next door neighbor….

    And isn’t that what we love about books? The characters do spring alive on the pages…if the books are good.

    Have a great day!

  2. What a great title! I’ve had a lot of sadness, and my imaginary friends (people I know only through the internet) have helped get me through it. Wishing you more strength and happiness.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
