Molly and Bella are not happy with me. They had a vet appointment this morning which included shots. Thankfully they both get over their displeasure fairly quickly.Especially when their favorite treats are involved. Bella was more disappointed that we weren’t going to the mountain but the looks of that sky has me saying no, not today.
Today’s word is birth.
You can give birth to a child, birth to a nation, birth to an idea. Says so right here; https://www.dictionary.com/browse/birth
Those here, (and on the vast amount of other sites available) have given birth to their creativity through their writing and photography. Creating a vast landscape of information and sharing to help inform, and encourage others.Many have given birth to books, music, dance steps that amaze and inspire each of us in our own individual ways. There are those who have given birth to a new career, finding (or creating) their niche and building their own business.
We often think of Spring as the beginning of new life. The time when baby animals are born giving them the warm season to grow. I’m hoping not, but I fear that we’re about to be inundated with kittens. I’m continuing to try and get the feral cats to trust me so that if that is true, we can rescue the babies. Even though kittens are cute and fun to watch, they need real homes and attention.
When I lost my job, I had to birth a new lifestyle. I’m learning that right now, I can go into a store and look but don’t touch. Buy only what is absolutely needed and no more. Once my car is paid off that too will change. The plus side is that I’m home for my folks when ever they need me and I can hike as I wish. Weather permitting.
This also gives me time to visit blogs, and various web sites or pick up a book and read. Reading then gives birth to new inspiration and ideas on which to write. It also gives birth to ever expanding understanding.
Before my son was conceived, I had given up on the idea of being a mother. I was over thirty years old and by then it simply didn’t seem likely to happen. But, I now have an adult son that proves that it was to happen when the time was right. By the way, giving birth naturally to a ten pound baby isn’t one of the easiest things to accomplish. Still, here he is, all six foot something of him and a man that would be said to be an old soul. I’m very proud of him, his accomplishments, and the man he has become.
After recent events and the researching for information I have given birth to a new mindset. Now I have only to nurture it, feed it, train it and allow it to grow. It, being me and my faith and trust in My God and myself. He is showing me the way, I have only to follow.
