Daily Prompt: Tremble

When I first looked at today’s Daily Prompt, I wasn’t sure if I could come up with anything to write. I actually looked up the definition so I could really think about what that word means and try to relate it to something in my own life. Then I realized, I get to see it all the time at work!

I currently work at a daycare… in the nursery. My days are filled with caring for little ones from as young as twelve weeks up to a little over a year old. They are AMAZING little creatures and I love them so much! (So much so…I’m currently filling in, doing the morning shift, which is WAY more hours than I’m used to…lol.)

Anyhow, one of the definitions included the idea of trembling with “excitement,” and that’s the one that caught my eye because it’s the one I get to see when one of our little ones takes his/her first step. You can literally see the anxiety, the wonder, and then the relief when that first step is a success.

We also get to see it when we walk in the door and they are just as happy to see us as we are to see them. There really is no better feeling in the world than having little babies love you with all they’ve got and it doesn’t matter if the babies are yours or not!!!

It is a wonderful sense of trembling and I am so blessed to get to see it!!!

Okay, that’s it for tonight. I have to get up early and go hang out with the wee ones again. 🙂

Lost in the Possibilities

The Discover Challenge this week is all about Mixing Media. On most days. I just write a post and hit publish. Every once in a while I will add a picture, but it’s not a regular thing. Today, I’m adding more than just a picture. For the first time in a long time, I opened up Photoshop and played around a bit.

I’ve been in this place before – feeling like I have so much going on and not really giving any one thing my best. I can’t stand this feeling. I sit and wonder if I should drop one or more things to concentrate on the others or just try to schedule time to really work on each of these things separately. I would love it if God would just stick a neon sign in front of me to show me what to do!!!

It’s so tiring and sometimes I want to just give up on all of it.
