Another week... another workshop... I'm going to write on number 1 and 2
If you would like to know about 3 and 4 let me know!
1.) Complete the sentence "I'd walk a mile for a ________." and continue writing about it. 2.) Describe in detail a person who leaves no stone unturned.
3.) When out to lunch with co-workers, you bump into a close friend who refers to you by a nickname. Because of its unusualness, the nickname catches the interest of one of your co-workers who asks for the story behind it. Start your story with, "This may come as a surprise, but ... " and end it with, "And that's how I got the nickname (fill in the blank)."
4.) Write about an intense game of Scrabble that takes an ugly turn for the worse.
I would walk a mile for a new, sunk in, completely tricked out, jets coming from everywhere, ...
bathtub. Heck, I'd walk a marathon for one of those.
I'd walk a mile or more for my family.
I wouldn't walk a mile for a Klondike bar.
I'd walk a mile for peace and quiet. Of course, by the time I got there it wouldn't be peaceful or quiet from all the panting and complaining I'd be doing... but you know...one can dream.
And now for a person who leaves no stone unturned.
I know so many people like this.
I'm going to generalize this I think.
I believe there is a group of people all over the planet that are just natural stone turner overs.
These people are Mamas!
What wouldn't we do for our kids! If our kids were gravely ill, we'd research and ask questions, and read, and poll, and find out, no matter what, to help our kids, no matter what their age!
If our kids needed help with bullying, abuse, or any kind of thing like that... we'd find shelter, offer shelter, call authorities, confront perpetrator etc...
If our kids find themselves going down the wrong path, we Mama's will fight, work, talk to, implore, intervene to help our babies.
When our friends or families children need help, we Mama's fight just as hard to help other Mama's out. To hand hold, provide shoulders for, cook meals for, shuttle children to and fro for, clean houses for, and just be there for our other Mama sisters.
Women are such fascinating, complex, warm, nurturing beings.
I feel so privileged to be a woman.
