Now I'll overshare to the point of complete exhaustion (yours) about cooking and eating and TexasWare and the unfortunate size of my hips, but generally I'm not one to go on about my feelings much because, well, I'm a crier. And you see, crying always gives me a headache.
And really puffy, baggy eyes.
But quite by accident this morning I came across the following quote, and although I had no intention of writing a post today I simply can't help but share.
"We write to taste life twice, in the moment, and in retrospection" ~ Anais Nin
To be honest, I knew nothing of the author until I stumbled upon the quote. And after researching her a bit, I would have to say her stuff is really "not my cup of tea", but she really hit the nail on the head for me with that one sentence.
Sometimes I wonder why I feel the need to write.
I'm not eloquent, neat, or learned in my writing. I rarely have a cohesive theme, logical progression of thought, or the proper literary mechanics.
I misspell, I run-on and I deviate.
But here's my heart.
I write because of what my family, my friends, my home, my dog, my many blessings mean to me.
I write because of the assurance of my salvation through Christ and His promise of eternity in Heaven.
I can't answer the question of why you click over here to read what I write, but I can tell you this without reservation
I write to relive the Joy that is mine everyday.
To taste and savor the joy just one more time.
Thanks for sharing it with me.
(Now I shall go search for some cold cucumber slices, or maybe freeze some spoons to place upon my eyes.)
