My Irreplaceable Role

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on November 12, 2005)

To be Queen Elizabeth within a definite area,
deciding sales, banquets, labors and holidays; to be Whiteley
within a certain area, providing toys, boots, sheets, cakes
and books, to be Aristotle within a certain area, teaching morals,
manners, theology, and hygiene; I can understand how this might
exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it.
How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about
the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one’s own children
about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing
to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s
function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute.
~ G.K. Chesterton from What Is Wrong With The World quoted in Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge

the pattern of my days

Monday, May 18th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on November 08, 2005)
exists around parenting through a daze
a thick fog
of thoughts that threaten to strangle
divorce
there is a message on the answering machine from the school
lawyers
“Your rent is past due.”
doctors
Asperger’s Syndrome
“I have no money to give you this month.”
the pattern of my days
dances around situations out of my control
there is a light at the end of the tunnel
I do see a break in the clouds
my one constant
who promised, “I will never leave you
nor forsake you.”
And the fog blows away
scattered like leaves in the wind
the pattern of my days
falls into place again

(Daddy’s note: It was on this date two years ago that we learned the seriousness of Natalie’s illness. We did not know that we had but 21 more days to share with her. Last year I re-posted her entries from those final three weeks. At this time I have no plans to do that again. But we still have the Relay For Life coimng in three weeks, and if you wish to write “Letters to Nattie,” again, I will post them on June 7, the date of her passing. {{{{{Y’all!}}}}})

You have the Reynolds girl look. Reynolds girls had the typical British beauty. The 18th Century British portrait painters would have been attracted by your brilliant complexion and your classical features. Sir Joshua Reynolds loved to paint girls like you in white dresses with blue satin sashes. Reynolds and other portrait painters of his time also portraye blue-eyed, dark-haired girls, and golden-haired ones too, plus the occasional redhead. The following painters would have painted you; Sir Joshua Reynolds and Sir Thomas Lawrence.

Dear God

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on November 1, 2005)
I am tired of only praying when I want or need something from you. I want (there is that word again) something more. I need *sigh* something more. I desire a deeper relationship with you that is not driven by wants, but is spurned by a need to just be with you and talk to you and share. Now how do I get there?
Love,
Your Child.

drama

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on October 31, 2005)
there is drama and then there is drama. I guess I’m a passionate person and I can be a smidge dramatic. My deoderant breaking can be comedic, tragic and, yes, dramatic. BUT that drama is the spice of life. Seeing the drama in the mundane is fun, IMO. The people who feel the lowest lows also feel the highest highs. Ask Anne Shirley.
But when people who shall not be named keep my life in constant turmoil because they can’t fulfill their roles and responsibilities, well, that’s not the drama I’m looking for. That drama can just take a flying leap off the nearest building, the taller the better. That drama isn’t necessary to fuel life.
I have enough passion for God and family and the mundane to find adventure in the corner of my living room. I don’t need this brand of drama. Thankyouverymuch.

Homesick
by Mercy Me
You’re in a better place, I’ve heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I’ve rejoiced for you
But the reason why I’m broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you
I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now
Help me Lord cause I don’t understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I’ll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I’m still here so far away from home
I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now
In Christ, there are no goodbye
And in Christ, there is no end
So I’ll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again
To see you again
And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now

Trunk or Treat

Last night was the annual Trunk or Treat celebration at my church. My kids like me to dress up so I was a mouseketeer. Not minnie mouse. Not mickey mouse. A mouseketeer from the mickey mouse club. Like that thing that we used to watch on Disney before Britney, Justine and Jessica were on. LOL

I’m such a sucker

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

(Originally published by Nattie on October 24, 2005)
I am such a sucker for sappy love songs, especially country ones.
And Jojo introduced me to one I hadn’t heard before. I love Terri Clark. I saw her in concert years ago with George Strait.
Oh, she said this song made her think of me. The romantic in me hopes so some day…

She Didn’t Have Time
by Terri Clark

He said goodbye from the edge of the porch
like she’d been some casual friend
he said “you’re better off without me
i’m not what you need”
like her momma had said about him
he started the car
pulled out of the drive
didn’t waste any time lookin’ back
she watched him go
thinkin’ even a stranger
would show more compassion than that

she could’ve cried but she didn’t have time
she had a baby to feed
a pink blanket to find
to rock their little one to sleep
she could’ve laid in bed for hours
giving misery the power
but she didn’t have time

she got a sitter, she got a job
’cause she had a promise to keep
her day was a factory and evening survival
at night was exhaustion and sleep
sometimes she felt life was passing her by
and watching was all she could do
her friends said “you gotta get outta the house
and maybe you’ll meet someone new”

she could’ve tried
but she didn’t have time
she had a five year old to feed
she had ballet class, piano lessons
and t-ball little league
she could’ve laid awake for hours
giving lonely nights the power
but she didn’t have the time

not time where would she find the time
to trust a man again
not time for that flat tire
a crowded parking lot and then
not time to just have coffee with the man
who got her tired fixed
she was thinking gosh he’s handsome
when he asked do you have kids

she could’ve lied
but she didnt have time
all she said was “she’s five”
he said “i saw the car seat I love kids
does she have your eyes?”
and they sat and talked for hours
giving destiny it’s power
she could’ve been afraid
to fall in love that night
but she didn’t have time
she could’ve been afraid
to fall in love that night
but she didn’t have time

I am not actually coaching Anna’s soccer team. I am coaching Jonathan’s team, but he rarely sits still long enough for me to take a picture of him. I’ll try again tomorrow.
We won our first game 5 to 3. And I have…no. idea. what. I’m. doing.
