I’ve been overwhelmed, as usual. Productive, yes, but not always doing what I wanted to be doing. Hiding, at times, from creating when I have the precious spare moment, choosing instead to waste it on … whatever.
Then, tonight, as I was searching for a recipe to make chocolate cake without eggs, (because I had no eggs and because I wanted to feed my face, instead of using the hour when my babes are resting to create) I came across some Mormon Messages. It reminded me of why I write. Why I am using my spare time to do what I am doing.
I loved three things that Cassandra said:
- She painted about being in the moment, appreciating the now.
- She brought her girls into her art studio and encouraged their creativity.
- She realized that she had made up an ideal that she thought she had to be – but all she needed to do was be the woman that God made her to be.
