Nerves.

I decided to do my very first Best Shot Monday this week.




Thanks for the wise and all-knowing comments on my last post. Of course you are all right, we will do it, because it is what we must do. And this little girlie is full of surprises and I know that she might just have one more trick up her sleeve that we can't quite anticipate. I just had to dump it all into words, so I could set it aside and get on with the business of today. It is hard to have the future crowding its way into a mind that is fully consumed by today, so I just transferred it from my mind into this space and here it will stay for a while, until I have to pick it up again. Just the act of writing it made me feel lighter.

my son bites his nails too. It sems strange to see little ones do it.

Love the shot, and your blog is very interesting as well. Prayers for your family during this transition.

And that in a nutshell is why I love blogging - it lightens the load in so many different ways.

Gretchen said...

It always works well to let it all out on paper. Glad you're feeling lighter!

Wonderful shot!

And it really can help just to get it all out ... and we're all here to listen and send good thoughts and cyber hugs when you need them.

Writing things out DOES help, doesn't it?
My word verification is "witlss", by the way. I am not!

Oh, I'm glad the act of writing your last post DID make you feel better. Perhaps I was transferring my worries about it all onto you. :)

That picture is great.

Wasn't your first day today?

She is stunning. What skin.

I used to bite my nails.

Beautiful little girl :) I'm sending you positive thoughts about the transition. You'll both survive this, despite how it feels now and the challenges you'll face during. :)

Beautiful Kaytar. Even with all the surprises she can pull out of the hat. That is our journey, sister.

I'm so excited for you in this new direction in which you are about to embark upon. Live off of that energy for awhile. It is good stuff!

Go look at Jeremiah 29:11--I like the NIV version best: "I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans for a hope and a future," Whenever I get to worrying about that future, that verse gets me back. I so want to know what His plans are now, but I must remember that I don't always get to know what I want when I want, and I need to be patient to wait for Him to reveal them. I can be confident that they are prospering, hopeful, not harmful. Of course that doesn't mean pain free or easy but it is a comfort in uncertaintly.

So glad you were able to get it all out yesterday. You certainly don't need all that clogging up your mind and emotions all day long.

Janet said...

Perfect title for the post, Kyla. Love the shot of KayTar!
