- SweetMother ;)
- I love God!! I am a travelling RN working in labor & delivery. I have an AWESOME son & daughter in law and a brand new grandson! They will be fabulous parents because THEY are outstanding. I love the Seattle Seahawks...my favorite player hands down is Richard Sherman for a number of reasons. I love to draw portraits and I am dabbling with mixed media painting...I suppose I'm an artist! I love photography, but I'm a novice & am constantly practicing as I make my way through God's wonderful creation.

Look Mom! It's a Thing!
Have you ever been sleep deprived? Been so tired that you don't make sense to anyone....not even yourself? OH yes, but does it stop at just that? No way!! Not only do you make absolutely NO sense at all, but every word that happens to escape your lips is HILARIOUS! What state of mind is this? Deliriium? Hysteria? Simple, everyday fatigue? Well, this is the state I was in today while Mom & I were driving, then hiking to Sol Duc Falls.
The 0.8 mile (one way) trail is very well marked and a super easy hike with only mild ups & downs. We noticed several interesting plants, some rocks shaped like 'fish', some green & white ?stuff? (maybe a fungus?) with little round-ish orange beads on them. THEN....
Whoah! "Mom! Look! It's a thing!!" Is that the funniest exclamation you've ever heard? Yeah, me either, but at the time we both laughed until we nearly wet our pants. (A little personal, sorry. LOL) Must have been the delirium in full effect. If you checked out the photo above, that was the "thing" we found to be so incredibly amusing. It's times like these that shape our mundane activities and regular ol' days into GREAT days! FUN days!
Then, of course, Mom had to get REALLY SILLY and scamper out onto the rocks just above the falls. Knowing from experience how slippery those stones are when they're wet, I'm yelling, "MOM!! Be careful! Don't go down there!" I'm thinking, ummmm, isn't this a little backward? Isn't the Mom supposed to be telling the child to be careful & not go there? Well, I look up and there she is....saying, "Neener Neener!"
Silly Mommy! I'm just THRILLED to see her having so much fun. Too many of these precious moments have been robbed from her over a span of about 40 years by 3 separate yet somehow melded creatures whom I do not care to mention at this moment. I will never be able to wrap my mind around the dark intentions inside these men. What good person can understand a soul who sets out to tear another down SO far that they no longer feel as if they are worth even a warm smile or a tender hug? Evil, simple as that...and what fellowship has Light with evil? None! None! None!
I will say that she IS healing. Travelling down this broken road, realizing what a beautiful creation that she truly is. Becoming a tiny bit more confident every single day that God has a purpose for her incredibly gentle soul and that it is up to her to take advantage of the resources at her fingertips to help her protect her soul. I pray daily for the ability to assist when I'm needed and to watch from the shadows when the situation calls for it. She is MOST special! I look forward with great anticipation to the next chapter in our lives when, if God wills it, we may spend quality time together without any hinderance from the evil ones.
At the end of this day......we partook in a little heaven on earth!!
"Resist the Devil and he will flee from you"
Christ gave us MOST sound instructions!
