They dig for worms. I don't understand it. I certainly don't encourage it. When they find them, I flee. Far, far away. I imagine it's only a matter of months before they realize my contempt for the slimey creatures and begin to torture me with them. Still, I guess I like the fact that they get their hands dirty. I was never that kind of kid, though I did plenty of outdoor playing.
When we were little, it was all about 'go outside and play'... and there you'd be up until dinner time. I would never let my kids play outside nowadays, though. I think it's sad that neighborhoods have sort of deteriorated and no one looks out for anyone anymore. Wonder why that is.
Anyway... it's starting to sort of look like spring here. Thank God. I love when it gets warm after a long winter. This weekend is our monster Easter Egg Hunt. We're frantically trying to get all our eggs in a row in time for the big event, and sadly, they are predicting the temperature to be in the 30's. Ugh. You can't hunt eggs with mittens on for pete's sake.
We've got lots to do. Busy, busy, busy. One of those weeks.
But my life is under some major changes again, I think. Last night, during our church service, our pastor said he felt that God was giving lives 'definition'. That is what I've long needed. My purpose defined. I can feel something starting to shift.
There've been many changes in the past months, including the fact that I am now listed as a contributing editor for Memory Makers Magazine. This, to me, is a really big deal - because somehow it validates my desire to be a writer. I don't feel so frivolous and silly saying I want to write when I'm actually doing it... it's when I'm just talking about it that I feel kind of ridiculous. I am excited to work with the magazine, and I've seen so many positive changes over the past months. The new staff is really doing a fabulous job - and now that the dust has settled, I think the magazine is back! I love that!
ALSO... and I'm really excited about this!! I've just been added to the Queen and Company Design Team. After years of only working with chatterbox, this will be quite unique for me. And I'm so excited. The team is amazing, and the products are SO FUN. I just can't wait to get started.
So, that's all my big news... and I can feel everything sort of swirling around me right now... I just need to figure out what to latch onto...
Since I haven't quite got it figured out... I'll just post some more worm hunting pictures. :)
Have a great day, friends!
