I know. Lots of blogging…. weird for me…. sorry/not sorry


Mother’s day {rather late…}

Yes, I know, I’m way behind on this.

My mother is currently away, as stated in the last post, and I miss her loads, and I’ve been meaning to do this post for awhile so here goes.

Mama, I love you. You are amazing. Inspiring. I know I don’t appreciate you as much as I should, but know that I definitely do appreciate you. All that you do for your family, for me. Thank you for being not only my mother, but my friend.

You are so strong. You’ve been in two car accidents, had major tooth infections, taken care of your dad in these last few years and you still keep going. Even when it hurts you so badly you have to rest for a week. I don’t think I could do that.

You are never satisfied with getting by, you want toΒ improve.

You encourage me to pursue my interests, read my work, listen to me play music, tell me I’m awesome and I’m beautiful, listen to me when I need to talk, correct me when I’m wrong (and I know you are right, even when I don’t admit it), and love me even when I’m naughty.

I thank God that I have you for my mother. I need you.

Love you and miss you, Mummy!



I know, random title. Whatever. Anyway.
A lot has been going on around here, namely that my mother has gone to be with her ailing father in Missouri. He has pneumonia and lung cancer. He is not receiving antibiotics or treatment for cancer… Mama just told me he had a good day today though. I feel strangely disconnected from the situation, but I won’t go into all that.
Writing has been going slow lately, which is my fault. However, we did have a film meeting last week, which went tolerably well. I was pleased with the results. We finally decided how large the falcons are, which was the most productive thing that happened. I did go over many things with Maria (so glad you came!!!!) and Elisa. Brandon had a cool idea for the falcons, which we shall probably use. He wanted to be a wizard, but as there are none in the film, he settled for a falcon. Overall, the meeting was a fun success. πŸ™‚

Sometimes I realize all what I have to do in order to complete the film, and I get totally terrified, feel like freaking out and running away.

Maybe I should go write…

Oh wait.

I am writing.

… What do I write now?

Yeah. That is how I feel about writing everything…

I have an idea. All you all who follow my blog, give me something that you think I should do a blog post about, or a story starter. I’ll give it a week, and then start on writing them. What do you think?

I think I should do a blog series about some of my deep thoughts, so I can sort them out.

I stare at the letters on the keyboard, and realize that they contain a story. I merely have to unlock that story, and give it life. I pray that God guides my fingers and my heart as these letters come together in a story that glorifies Him, the One who gave me life and hope.

Oh! I had an idea. I’m going to write two versions of the father-daughter story: a fantasy one, and a fiction one. Then I shall hand them out to my friends and see which they prefer.

Perhaps, if you’re good, I shall share it on here as well.

… I feel horribly inadequate as a writer.


(Well that was quite random.)
