Whirlwind or Tumbleweed?

I stopped to consider today which my life is more like...the whirlwind or the tumbleweed. Let me ponder.

"A whirlwind is a weather phenomenon in which a vortex of wind (a vertically oriented rotating column of air) forms due to instabilities and turbulence created by heating and flow (current) gradients." Wikepedia

"A tumbleweed is the above-ground part of a plant that, once mature and dry, disengages from the root and tumbles away in the wind." Wikepedia

Yesterday I got a call from my former employer, the one who laid me off almost exactly 2 months ago. Today I was sitting in the exact same cube I started in, reporting to the exact same person over two years ago. I will be consulting for a couple of weeks.

Although it feels a little like a whirlwind, and my heart feels like a dry tumbleweed, unsure of where it is being blown to next, I decided I am neither a whirlwind or a tumbleweed. God knows the direction and plan He has for me.

She Loves Me

If I had a daisy in my hand...picking off the petals, I would be chanting "she loves me, she loves me, she loves me" With my new little daughter, there is no "she loves me not" petal.

Her adoration for me is breathtaking. I have people in my life who are pretty thrilled when I enter the room, who love me alot, but nobody compares to Olivia. I am her ENTIRE world. Her face beams when her eyes connect with mine. It is kind of a cool, yet shocking thing. Just wanted to say.
