It's not my fault.

It's theirs. The noisy ones.

My computer sits right off the kitchen. Everyone knows, the kitchen is where all the activity happens. (Well, most of the activity. There are enough smallish people living in our home to spread ample commotion around and around all.over.the.place.) Usually there are several children in the kitchen playing, sword fighting, joke telling, laughing, bossing, screaming, singing, clapping, stomping, breaking dishes - you know, generally causing a ruckus. Although, some of them do prefer to stand right behind me while I sit at my desk, looking over my shoulder, breathing down my neck, waiting for me to answer a {critical} question - "in what food group does strawberry cake belong?"

All in all, it doesn't make for the most peaceful environment - not one that is highly conducive to thinking through and articulating coherent, insightful reflections about one's {loud, and usually lovely} life.

So, keep this in mind when I let you know I am blogging here today. I said exactly what was on my mind at the time, what I would have probably spoken on my blog if I were not saying it there. (Because I tell you almost everything.) Yet, in hindsight, I'm kind of wishing I had offered up something lighter.

If it were quiet enough in my house for me to adequately gather my thoughts, I may have been (just a touch...ahem...) less self effacing on her site that is always filled with the most gracious, encouraging, edifying words which serve to uplift her readers, truly ministering grace.

Yes, I believe if I were thinking more clearly, I probably would have written about cute, cuddly puppies instead. ☺


p.s. *A special thank you goes to Carla. You may not even remember sharing such wise words via blog comments with me that have stayed on my mind, remained in my heart, and soothed my soul......it takes time to acclimate.....

Sure, it was honest, but it was totally uplifting. Tisha, I think it is great that you were true to yourself. You are always pretty transparent on your own blog from what I can tell, so I think it is great your brought your "flavor" to another blog. I thought it was a great, honest, uplifting post of how God can teach us and transform us.

Jen, thank you so much for saying so! I was second guessing whether it was the 'right' post to send. I so appreciate your kind words. :)

Hello, I found your blog via "A Bushel and a Peck". It caught my eye because my name is Tisha too! You don't see that name very often, so I wanted to visit. :)

Tisha,
I am so glad that I helped you in some way. My prayer was that God would use my difficult journey to help somebody else. I wasn't sure you were talking about me until I checked my blog. Thanks for sharing, there were times I wasn't sure if I was saying too much or not. There are a couple other things I would like to share with you that might encourage you if you would like to email me: livingbygrace2003@yahoo.com.
Blessings to you and your beautiful family! :)
