Once in awhile,
it's good to get away from the home,
and do something
It might be just
a coffee date with a few other mommies.
Maybe you get to actually
Not, "I'm just taking the baby" alone,
or "I'm just taking the poddy-training one" alone.
Now that I am getting to be a grown-up Mommy,
with more grown-up kids,
all can feed themselves,
all can dress themselves,
(so sorry to rub it in!)
occasionally, I get to do some fun things in life.
But when I come back,
my life is waiting.
This weekend I was blessed to attend
the Northwest Christian Writers Renewal,
a two day conference with Brandilyn Collins speaking.
We had many other workshops on the craft of writing.
I met a lot of Christian writers.
I met the senior editor from Harvest House
and the fiction editor from Bethany House.
(I picked them up from the airport and didn't get in an accident,
despise my extreme nervousness.
OK, I was terrified.)
I met the editor of Clubhouse Magazine for Focus on the Family.
Above all, all weekend
I was inspired to keep writing,
not for publication,
but for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Encouragement from Judy Bodmer on writing,
"even if you have only touched one life,
you've given them an incredible gift."
I am renewed to write.
And with that same renewed energy,
I have some laundry to tackle today, too.
