You give birth
And the moment your eyes see
Your creation, your life is forever
Changed

Gone forever is the party girl
Gone forever is the sleeping in
Gone forever is privacy

All replaced with a tiny person
Placed in your arms...your heart
Who will call you Mommy

You are now responsible for bath time,
Play time, feeding time and best of all
Snuggle time

Their accomplishments and failures yours to rejoice over or cry with
Their heartbreak... yours as well

As they leave you to start their own family... you will feel both pride in a job well done and if you?re honest with yourself... an emptiness

In the end ...
God will look down and whisper to your heart... ?WELL DONE MY CHILD?

Happy Mother?s Day

Trouble knocked at the door, but, hearing laughter, hurried away.

Jannypan (Jan) : Good! Maybe it will stay gone.

mrsmajor: He knew he was out of place, and not wanted....God was with us, showering us with His Blessing of peace and joy....Don't ever come back, trouble, you will find the same circumstance. You are not wanted! -

As I look back on last nights events, and consider what could have happened, instead of what did.... my knees are still weak and my heart is full of thankfulness. After coming home, I was wide awake and alone with only my FanStory friends to talk to.... Thank you everyone for letting me vent my frustration. Took all three girls to school and we had a long talk in the car about safety and venting their anger.... which does not include running away. The sun is out and it's going to be a better day! Enjoy yours... Smiles, Carol



AJ McCall: Goodness! I'm glad all's well now. What exactly happened? -

Boogienights: Congratulations, I'm so happy for you. :) -

How do you feel about details not directly necessary to the plot? Do they take a rapid one-way trip to Filterland?



nor84: Not always. In one story I wrote, a man confesses to his comrade that he killed his father and got away with it. He doesn't say it directly, just that the doctors said it was an accident "and who was I to disagree?"

Is it directly necessary to the plot? No, but it is a good insight into the character, who is a sociopath, and it has a chilling effect on the comrade. -
