Inspiring

12/Oct/2009

I know we’re all busy and yet we somehow manage to maintain this space on the Interweb. We drive to it most nights grasping for some bit of ourselves. It’s our haven.

So know that when I say I’m drowning, I’m not asking for you to save me, but maybe just to toss in some floaties.

And a beer.

Or three.

I could post my todo list for you here. We could marvel at its length. We could giggle, “Wow, what a large todo list you have, Mrs. Flinger” and make 12 year old remarks.

Or we could look at some pictures of my kids at the harvest festival from this weekend.

I always say pictures of kids trump a todo list.

And maybe I’ll toss in a quote that is especially moving to me today. After looking at these photos, experiencing the weekend through their eyes, and realizing I am just but one person, I want to leave myself with this small reminder:

“This is what separates artists from ordinary people: the belief, deep in our hearts, that if we build our castles well enough, somehow the ocean won’t wash them away. I think this is a wonderful kind of person to be.” -Anne Lamott

  4. Lovely, lovely children.  It’s a beautiful thing to see happy kids with smiles.  I’m sure you cherish them (through the ups and downs) every day.
