I think that every writer lives life listening. Any snippet of conversation is potential plunder. One of my friends routinely asks during our phone conversations, "Are you writing this down?" She is wise to ask. :)
So tonight, because I have little time to write, I am offering up three moments made me think or laugh in the past week.
Over breakfast on Saturday, Brenda shared a life lesson that she learned, she said, through (happily) past heartbreak and misery :) "Watch what people do. more than what they say."
My friend Ann shared this during a meeting last week, "A conversation takes time; but anything else takes longer."
And finally, at the risk of everyone thinking I am a complete nutbar--my contribution after cell group last Thursday. I was overcome with gratitude for a few things, including reading, and enthusing to friends Susan and Jane. "Think about what an amazing gift it is to be able to read," I said (and should have stopped there, but I added,) "Dogs can't read."
This caused Susan to burst into laughter and say, "Neither can worms." :) Welcome to Belindaland.
And finally, something sent by my friend Wayne; enjoy, I did:
