I'm Thankful for Memories

Memories mean a lot to me, and they are the second thing on my list of things I'm thankful for. For the longest time, I couldn't remember the last time I'd seen my foster sister who turns four tomorrow. I was able to see her yesterday. She was in a carseat, but she was smiling. She said "I love you" and gave me a hug and kiss.

     Later that night, I wrote down every detail I could remember from seeing her. I didn't want to forget. Those memories are good. I needed to do that, but it also hurt.

     Being thankful for those blessings don't always make you feel good, but thanking God for them is always great. That's why I make an effort to see blessings every single day. I've written some of them here at Equals Enough.

    So be thankful for all the little blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I Wish I Could Just Write

I wish I could just write. 
With no quizes, tests, or papers to complete. With no Spanish or math to frustrate me. With no interruptions or fatigue.
I wish the words would just come without any struggle.  I wish people could see what I see, feel what I feel, and hear what hear. Those things I cannot find the words on the page to describe. I wish grammar wasn't important and didn't drive me nuts. I wish the fear of opinions didn't slow me down. I wish life didn't always effect what I write.

Maybe I like that last one.

But only because God controls the life that effects what I write.
