Secret # 2: You Are Precious
To My Beautiful Children,
There are so many lessons that I hope you will hold confidently in your heart when you approach the world during your school years and beyond. In addition to understanding the relationship between your actions and the future, I hope that you are sure, no-matter what happens in your life, that YOU ARE Precious. There can never be another you, and your life was planned by God.
How does Mommy know this is true? Faith...and observation. I have been with you from your human beginning. I named you when you were still my secret. I wanted each one of you, and put aside my fears to make your lives reality. I'm watching you grow closely. I can say with certainty that each one of you is unique, and wonderful.
There will be times in your lives when you feel persecuted in various ways, and that makes me sad. Mommy's instinct is to protect you, but I can't interfere with your lives. You have to deal with people and events independently when you are older. Please be patient with me as I get accustomed to this fact of life. Even when you make mistakes, you are still my precious children, and I believe it is worth the effort to get back up and keep walking toward your goals. I'm one hundred percent sure that God has great plans for each one of you.
Dear Internet Traveler,
Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
