Better than a Hallelujah

This song...I love it. I'm not a fan of this "video", but it's the only one I could find today- and it shows the lyrics, which are wonderful.

So, for you today, Amy Grant and "Better than a Hallelujah"

The embedded version is unavailable right now- go check it out on youtube. It's wonderful.

Post #301- 1st grade story

I just HAD to share this story with you.

This is from the same student who produced the poems "vacuum", "scratch", etc. from a February post. Here's a story he wrote this week.

I have a kitty! We got her from the vet.
Meow, meow, meow went the kitty all the way home in the truck. We named her Meow.
I was bugging the cat. Poke, poke, poke! ERR! Meow clawed my cheek! OUCH! She made me bleed.
Pet her nicely! It makes Meow angry when I'm not gentle.
I like to play with kitty.

love. it.

no title today.

A coworker and friend, Becky, came to school today and said, "Guess what I did for 2 hours Friday night..." Bowling, Checkers....I had no idea. Her response: "Read your blog." I was baffled. Was it really that good?

So tonight I went back to 2007 and perused through some of my old posts. It made me miss my college self- I was witty. I was hilarious. I made myself laugh out loud. I am proud of who I was. And wondered where she went. Maybe she's still around....just a little older and more refined. Refined. Ha.

My goal now is to get back to that creative, literary mindset. READ! Write! Sit at a coffee shop simply at a coffee shop. Pretend to be a queen for a day, throw worms in the rain, smell and listen and feel the seasons like I used to.

Now it seems like life is just too fast. It's hard to remember to slow down and experience life. It's easy to go through the motions and forget about the joys and passions that I have. So....I will try to let myself be a little more free. Free to be ridiculous. Free to be hilarious. Free to suck all the marrow out of life. And for heaven's sake- spring and rainstorms are just around the corner- this shouldn't be difficult!
