Joy Through Her Eyes
Do you only look for romance in the big things in life? Or do you see it even more in the little things? Today, author Tabitha Bouldin is sharing a story of something that might seem mundane and normal, but was romantic to her.
I love the idea of romance in the mundane, every day, little things.
But picking out a single moment that speaks to me, that took me a minute.
Since I’m an author, let me tell you a story.
I am terrified of deep water. To the extent that I was unable to learn how to swim.
This fear has played a big part in my life. It has hindered me and held me back time after time.
I didn’t want our two boys to experience the same fear, but I did not have the ability to teach them how to swim.
My husband did. He knew my fear and he understood what it meant for me that the boys learn what I could not.
Just a Second
How long does it take to cause a burn like this one?
Just a second.
At least, that's all it took for me.
Reaching in for pizza and my wrist grazed the side of the 425 degree oven. And it hurt, in case you were wondering.
Isn't it crazy how short a time it takes for something to hurt us for much longer (like when I scratched the itchy spot a week later before realizing it was the scab on my burn--and it started hurting again)?
This is a place for me to share thoughts and ideas not just related to writing. Thoughts about what's going on in my life, about an idea I got that I thought shareworthy, or just a funny anecdote.
