Fire! Fire!


Today has been a lazy day of organizing the house, my thoughts and getting some mail out the door. The kids have managed to get through lunch without throwing food or poking each other in the eye with our new plastic cutlery.

We've had lots of local fires raging. As I type this, I am forced to look within at my own personal fires and wonder how much of them I cause myself. Am I an arsonist? Or simply someone who, like many of the fires of late, have inadvertantly dropped matches on other peoples' hillsides. Probably a little of both. But with my new torch of being honest, I'm hoping that when the heat subsides, new growth can occur. It's all too exhausting to not be upfront.

On the homefront, however, the candles are burning bright. My children are healthy. And I'm feeling the warm fire of peace as I inch closer toward my goals and my purpose. I am blessed for this warmth and heat when so many others have so little.

Onetallmomma is right, your are word wise and very talnted. The analogy of life, emotion and honesty to fires is perfect and right on.

Onetall Momma and Pam - Word wise? That is so sweet. Sometimes I feel more penny wise and pound foolish. But the compliment is so welcome.
