I tried to post yesterday and I sat in front of the computer and thought to myself, “what will I post about today?” Nothing came to mind … just the sound of crickets. Huh.
It reminded me of years ago in college in an English class I was in. I had this great teacher that looked like a droopy dog from a cartoon that I can’t recall the name of right now. He taught us to meditate on the first day. Now I lived in Visalia and really, meditation was FAR from what was the norm. In fact, I believe a lot of the kids went home and told their parents who promplty filed complaints with the school. I wasn’t one of them because I saw that it actually worked. He walked us through relaxing our bodies and minds while we sat in that chair and then taught us to just write whatever came from our head. Kind of like our intuitive painting class a few weeks ago. So that’s what I’m doing this morning … letting it fly – haha.
I have so many topics in my head right now but none that seem very clever or witty (which is what I like to write on most).
I read a blog this morning that inspired me. I found it through the tag surf feature and it showed up because of the common “friends” tag. It’s written by a guy that has a great voice in his words. You know what I mean … when you feel you that you can hear their voice as you read their story. He wrote about friends today, but in digging through his blog a bit more, I learned about his real story. He and his wife are adopting two children from Haiti – Amos and Story. If you have some time, take a look at his blog … I think you’ll dig it.
I remember years ago when my ex and I decided to adopt. It’s a scary and exhilarating journey. You have so many naysayers to contend with, yet you know in your heart that you are on the right path. The first time I saw the picture of Zac, I knew that he was meant for me. In a weird way, I’m grateful to my ex for opening that door for me (even though he didn’t stick around for the long haul). If I hadn’t met him, I wouldn’t have adopted so early. There is a lot more to that story, but I don’t feel like getting into that now. I love the journey that Zac and I (and now Ron too) have been on together. There are days I freak, days I yell, days I cry and quite a few days where I laugh a lot.
I can’t wait to hear more about their journey too.
