Tally Time & Newby Mom

Thursday, December 2, 2010

Time to see if I did Tuesday's To Do . . .

Yes, I 'splained myself! Even though there were no actual comments, good discussions were had. I feel better, more clear, about giving this season and I hope you do, too.

Also, I'm feeling pretty good about my December article that posted over at Newby Mom. It is one those rare things I've written, which I read later and still like! I hope you like it, too.

When I was young, my Grandfather hid a chirping bird in the Christmas tree. Every few seconds you would hear it, “Tweeeeet! Tweet-tweet-tweet! Tweeeeeet!” The adults rolled their eyes and walked away. I loved it. I was determined to find that bird. My grandparents’ tree was sprinkled with birds. Bird ornaments hanging by string, and bright red Cardinals perched on various branches. I paused by each one, listening.

  1. I love your "Childlike Faith" article. I think you're doing great as a writer (I know I'm your mom, but still!) Thank you for the Christmas tree singing bird springboard - a sweet personal memory for me, and an apt illustration of faith. Made me think of Emily Dickinson's poem:
    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words,
    And never stops at all.

  2. Oh, can't wait to read your article! How fun. Bouncing over now!
