-introspective kid-

When I was cleaning out my nightstand drawer, I found a letter that I wrote to Roger when we were dating. I hate reading my old letters, (and journals. and poetry.) but this one was partially destroyed, so I read through it to see if it was worth saving. I’m still not sure it’s something I want to hang onto, but there were these two sentences in there:

“[God has] a big important plan for some people, and a little one for other people. There has to be somebody to do the little minor things that get overlooked, and I think that’s me, because that’s what I’m best at.”

That’s still what I’m best at. Little things.

But I was surprised to see that I’d already figured that out 17 years ago.

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
