I am sitting here on the deck knitting a new project and feeling the sun, hearing the birds, frogs, and bumblebees, and watching linens occasionally lilt up in a rare drift of breeze.
Thinking about my blog, I thought, “I will post those economic and political links and commentaries today.” Then I remembered this would be my 500th post. And it’s a Friday. Maybe I could keep it light.
Well, not so light. Because my life matters to me. And that’s ultimately what this blog is about. Not about my split personalities (ahem friend from Rockford) but rather about the fact that I am not one-sided. I am not just a mom. I am not just a home birther. I am not just an extended breastfeeder. I am not just a natural healther. I am not just a home learner. I am not just the most fantastic friend ever. I am always and first a wife.
I believe in live and let live while keeping in mind that taking from others at gunpoint is not letting live. It’s theft.
I believe in freedom from religion and freedom from a tyrannical government.
I believe in people. I believe every person can do anything s/he wants if s/he really wants to do it.
I believe my Husband is the head of our family and our home.
I believe God is the Father and Jesus Christ is His Son who He gave for my eternal life.
That’s what I believe.
I am grateful for this format to scatter my seed onto this ground. I know that much of it has fallen to the wayside and never sprouted. I also know some of it has sprouted. I give that credit to the dirt that was made before me.
