Building Blocks

I can chalk it up to the fact that I have a toddler, but when I envision my upcoming 20 minute presentation to a group of ladies, I see building blocks.

Every time I start my presentation in my head there they are. My stories center around the blocks, I see the blocks tumbling down and building back up.

I start on the PPT presentation this week and am excited to see how it materializes. This is usually how I work. Some image forms in my mind and grows into an idea, then the idea turns into a speech, paper or presentation.

I am getting excited!

Getting the Best of Me

I am turning out to be a horrible sick person. Emmanuel came home to me crying my eyeballs out Tuesday night. I had cooked a beautiful dinner of fresh Salmon with tomato/cilantro pesto baked in. One of my favorite meals.

However- come to find out, the hard way, it was infused with gluten. Yep, you heard me right...they use gluten in the coloring and add coloring to make the salmon pink. SO FRUSTRATING.

Well, while I was doubled over like someone had kicked me in the gut, I indulged in a torrent of tears. I let all the frustration out with salt water. Kind of felt good to cry over it....

After that when the shakes started I just sniffled under my blanket and thanked God. It could be worse. It could be better, I did remind Him, but it could also be worse.
