To The Parents Of...

September 23, 2010 by Rieshy

Evidently my husband is also my parent. 

I was so excited to be invited to spend the summer touring England, Ireland, and Wales with other high school students "my" age...

I was especially excited about the chance to Develop new skills through activites designed to stretch me.  

I have to admit that as I read this letter, part of my body whisked away to some wind-swept heath where I wandered, without a care in the world, holding a composition notebook and sketching different varieties of native heathers.

No mortgage, no 2 a.m. feedings, no drama but that of my own making.  

Then someone grabbed my arm asking, "What's for lunch?"  

Swoosh, I landed back in reality faster than any jet can travel.
Then someone noticed the letter I was holding and I suddenly had a crowd of children laughing with me.  

Sometimes landings are a good thing...

I love when I get those types of things....I let my mind whoosh around for a bit but AMEN to the landings and I'm thinking as moms we get plenty of opportunities to be stretched. May your stretching be joyful today!

I love it...I've never had that happen to me, but what a fun little adventure. Even if it was just in your head. :-)
