With the beginning of the year I’ve been thinking on the direction I’d like to go with this blog. I’ve been wondering if I need to narrow down the focus or if I can continue to post everythng random as it occurs in my busy life.
It is an interesting question.
But in reviewing my writing over the past year I’ve found an obvious theme in my favorite posts.
Do you all have insights or opinions on content here at overflow? Which of these is your favorite post of mine?
Without further ado. My 12 in 2012 with a brief excerpt from each to whet your appetite or jog your memory.
Thank you for reading, all. I would love some interaction :)

“He needs me to take off my serious face and smile.
He needs dirt and fun and swings and adventure. Being his father’s son, I’m sure he needs these things.
He needs a quiet lap, warm hugs, and his momma’s sense of humor to be fully prepared to laugh at the boy jokes (his dad has been working on that one for him. lol)
He needs me.”
The bright blue sky that fills my mind is something of a masterpiece. The voice to describe that bright blue masterpiece leaves little to the imagination. It is art. It is me.
The cheerios and corn chip pieces from snacks of old are spread like time bombs waiting for that tiny crunch of reached potential. The crackling sound breaks forth from under the foot of an unsuspecting parent. Their shoulders hunch as the mischievous brother and sisters of the aforementioned crunch watch with glee.
The head above those shoulders thinks only on the interrupted calm of post-bed house and the need to sweep the floor.
Each crunchy step brings misplaced wishes for a dog.
For your funny bone…
The Wife wakes up and spots a small bag of reeses peanut butter cups on the desk…
Who can say if you have met with things Holy?
Or if you’re dreaming about milk?
And I’m piecing together my beliefs. Based on the Bible of course. But instead of just accepting the views of whatever church or pastor or person, I’m have started thinking for myself, questioning popular opinions, searching out information, and hopefully becoming more in tune with God’s heart for this world.
And at the moment, I think that’s important.
A month before the lad made his appearance…
I can’t wait for you to be a visible wiggle instead of a wiggly mystery.
These warm muscles ache.
Exercise abandoned for the weekend, but they ache still.
The fibers fighting, needing rest more than anything else.
The final piece in our wedding story…
“Somehow, the fleeting moments bless us mothers.
They allow us the realization that these things are temporary.
The lack of sleep will not be normal soom enough. Your house will be cleaner soon enough. And your time will be your own soon enough.”
Pictures in those first few days…
“So the little man is making some major progress in his journey on becoming a human. I know I know. He has human status, but up til now he’s been an eating, noisy, floppy little monster of affection. :) don’t get me wrong that is quite lovely too.
