That moment when you decide, I'm going to be a writer, and all the memories you don't really want to remember flood your mind. But you need the flood because you will come out of it a different person. There will be people who remember with you, and they are grateful for the words that free them from isolation. You are not alone.
For three years I have been writing bittersweet vignettes of motherhood. A compilation of moments I want to freeze, and others, I want out of! Times of devastation, like when I found out my son had Down syndrome. Or that time I knelt on the bathroom floor and cried in agony as I said goodbye to another unborn baby. The days of joy as I found humor from my children. The unexplainable moment when I delivered my daughter in the shower. It's all here.
I am learning to trust in the brush strokes of the Maker. When parts of the painting look awkward, I have to remember that there is a bigger picture. I ask him to help me find beauty in what I don't understand.
The Mural & The Maker is a book of stories that fit into a bigger picture.
The Mural & The Maker
I really enjoyed this book! This book is for anyone, especially moms who feel they are alone and not good enough. The author did a wonderful job letting the readers take a real glimpse in to her life. She discusses hard feelings that moms some times feel they shouldn't express out loud. Very nicely done!
