Wandering....

I truly was just wandering around the web this morning hitting different blogs of people I had never met when my heart just ached because these women were so passionate and so creative I wanted so much to be like them....of course there was one major difference....I can't sew. Well, i really should qualify that...i don't sew well. I pieced together a quilt for Girl's Camp and it will do it's purpose of keeping me warm, but we shall see just how far that takes me. I am going to attempt to do the same for my daughters...make them a cute quilt with bright colored fabric for their beds. We shall see, but we will need to start after this weekend.

Anyway, after seeing these outwardly creative women I dearly wished I was like them being very artsy with my hands and then it struck me....I AM!!!! well in my own little world. I am working on writing my latest story which in the end has had me literally creating my own world. Scary but true. It has been a challenge which I am desperately trying to rise to the occasion. Luckily...my hubby is behind me 100%. He understands when the voices in my head won't stop and i am sitting next to him in bed while he is sleeping I am typing away on my laptop. he understands it is m dream to finish and see a story published....we shall see how long that takes me, but in the end I ant something that I don't have to hate in the end. It is an interesting process I have fallen in love with...even though it tries my nerves to the end. So i finally figured out that on the outside I am not as creative as these fabulous women, but in my mind where the creative juices are flowing we are one in the same. Amazing how that happens!

I think you hit it on the nose. We are all talented in our way. If Heavenly Father gave us all ofthe same talents...what a boring world it would be.

Good luck on your book and if you ever need a "reader" let me know!
