Deep thoughts again.....

Scroll down for my Thousand Words Thursday post.
The Prompts from MamaKat:

For your birthday a sibling has decided to have the first six months of your blog printed and bound. Write a forward for the book.

What made your childhood bearable? Write about it.


There are more but these are the topics I am going to attempt this week.
Are these getting more difficult or is it just me? I am only a college graduate. I am sure this is stuff for university students.....



So my brother who is 5 years my junior decides to make my blog into a book. After hugging him and letting him know that he is the most thoughtful brother ever, I would write this.

Ahem. *bows*



I am just a simple girl. A simple girl who needed some kind of therapy during her years as a mother of two young boys. The happy pills took the edge off but I still needed something to get me through the day without running away from home.


And never coming back.


That is when I discovered blogging.


I thought that if I wrote down my thoughts and told stories about the chaos that is my life, that, maybe, just maybe, I would not need any psychiatric care.


And I would actually enjoy being at home.


Then I discovered that I actually enjoyed writing. I discovered that it really was therapeutic. I discovered that writing about my life would actually make me appreciate it even more. And then I discovered that baby #3 was on the way.


Weird how that stuff happens huh?


The chaos that is my life is just the way I want it. Writing about it makes me realize that my life is exactly how it was meant to be.


Perfect.


How is that for deep?



Next prompt- What made your childhood bearable? Write about it.


This is easy. In two words- my husband (he wasn't my husband at the time. Just sayin'). He was my best friend throughout public school and high school. I got involved with the wrong crowds. He didn't and made sure to let me know his feelings about it. When I did stupid things, he told me. When he didn't agree with decisions I was making, he let me know it. Even though I did some stupid "teenager" things on my journey to find myself, he was always there. I knew I could count on him through the good times and the bad. I don't know where I would have ended up if it wasn't for him.

Ok, that is all the deep, mushy, sweet stuff I can handle for today.........I need to go brush my teeth. I am getting a headache.
