I’m a Traveler…

Do you know that song by Chris Stapleton? That’s become my life and this is a problem because I’m a homebody. I like the house. Home. Writing. My schedule. However, I chose to have four kids and they are all over the country. Which means, I’m all over the country because no matter how old your kids get, they’re still your kids. They NEED things. And you worry. Oh, how you worry.

Case in point: My daughter Elle needed to get from Colorado to Arizona. Then, from Arizona to California. As a mother, you can’t let your beautiful blonde daughter drive these distances herself — maybe it’s because you watch a lot of “Dateline” but whatever. It’s the truth. There are new trafficking stories on the news every night. Long story short, I have been in Colorado, Arizona and now, California. A writer must produce and it is hard to do so when you are mobile. My friends are really good at writing on laptops while driving — I am not. I like to be in an upright position at my desk.

So this week I planned to get back to work and write with my writing buddies. (We schedule a time to write every day of the week and do writing sprints with a timer.) Yes, we can do it ourselves, but this gives us accountability and a chance to have our water cooler moments.

This all reminds me that life is what happens when you’re busy planning. I planned to get this book done by December 15th for my next release, but life gets in the way. Today, a handicapped relative needs to go to Costco so that’s my priority. Because like it or not, I’m a traveler.

What comfort zone does God continually push you out of for your growth?

    My Dateline buddy, LOL. I live near Route 80 in Ohio. It is prime trafficking because 80 runs across the country. I am vigilant not only with my daughter, but all girls I come in contact with.

    I so resonate with life gets in the way. I lost 6 weeks taking care of family out of state. All is better, but as I come off the adrenaline I’m just sitting at the laptop staring into space…

      Someone should tell us as mothers of beautiful daughters to stay away from that show. LOL. I live on the 10, which is another major trafficking road. Drugs too because I’m three hours from Mexico. Ah, the world is a lovely place, isn’t it? Come Jesus, Come.
