The Story I Never Knew I Wanted, The Book I Never Thought I'd Write
That moment when you decide, I'm going to be a writer, and all the memories you don't really want to remember flood your mind. But you need the flood because you will come out of it a different person. There will be people who remember with you, and they are grateful for the words that free them from isolation.
You are not alone.
For three years I have been writing bittersweet vignettes of motherhood. A compilation of moments I want to freeze, and others, I want out! Times of devastation, like when I found out my son had Down syndrome. Or that time I knelt on the bathroom floor and cried in agony as I said goodbye to my second unborn baby. The days of joy as I found humor from my children. The unexplainable moment when I delivered my daughter in the shower.
It's all here.
I am learning to trust in the brush strokes of the Maker. When parts of the painting look awkward, I have to remember that there is a bigger picture. I ask Him to help me find beauty in what I don't understand.
The Mural And The Maker is a book of stories that fit into a bigger picture. It will be released this summer as a free download for iBooks or Kindle. Sign up for my email list below to be the first to know!
Thank you to all who have been so supportive of this journey. How sweet to walk a little piece of this life with you.
