Hats Women Wear

Trial and Tribulations

While observing a unique woman yesterday as she stepped out of her car she looked so beat up. I suspect this woman puts on many hats each day. She could be a mother, wife, sibling, business owner etc. I suspect she has times when she’s loves many of them. Yet she could be wearing so many hats that the most important one she often forgets.

This Is Your Life

For those of us who are somewhat older, there was a show called ” This is Your Life” that many of us enjoyed immensely. Today and every day you are playing this is your life!

Through the years we have all made countless decisions and have regretted many. Here is a short story that will help illustrate.

Many years ago my father died and my older brother and I had not spoken in years ( for who knows what reason?) so I was advised by Pastor if he should show up at the funeral home I should try and make peace with him. Well, he did show up and I approached him. I reached out and shook his hand and ask him if we could just put the past behind us? His response ” It is what it is”. Of course part of the rest of that story is he wanted to talk to me when I was several hundred miles away back home. Of course, that didn’t happen.

So folks after something happens in your life is truly a life story built one sentence at a time.

Writing and Life

For those of us who love to write it gets really frustrating when life events get in the way. The reality of life is that they do and that will never change. Of course, that also gives as writer a plethora of new subject matter. What people around us fail to see is that they are all subject to being part of your writing! You learn to change names ( and protect the innocent) with phrasing. I do find it rather amusing that many people think that something I wrote was about them and in reality, it had nothing to do with them at all. For me, it’s a combination of people and events that lead me to write about something. The thing is I never know when these inspirations or events will trigger something and neither do those around me!
