on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

Update on *Muffin* :)

Thanks for all of your prayers! This time I have some good news....

As you know, *Muffin* was admitted to the hospital last night, and my mom & I went to go see her. It was really intense when we got there, because she was getting checked by a pediatrician, and was really upset. When babies have croupe, they have this unnerving barky sound to their cough.... No offense, but they sound kind of like a seal! It was really rather scary for me, because I had not expected that. Right when we got there, *Muffin* reached out to Mom, which really tugged at our heartstrings. Even though she was struggling, she was still our *Muffin*!

Mom held her the whole time we were there. That freed up her mom to go home and get the things they needed to spend the night at the hospital. It was also *Muffin*'s dad's birthday, but he didn't mind. It was rather neat to see.

While we were there it seemed she improved. She got more peaceful while Mom was holding her, and when we left she was sleeping on her Momma. :)

As of today, we found out that she is going to be released from the hospital this morning. That is a great relief to hear, because at least she is stable and doing better. If you would like to pray still, just pray for *Muffin* to get better, as well as her mom, dad, and grandma to have peace.

BTW, *Muffin* is not her real name. :o)

Thanks for praying everyone! I really appreciate it!

In His Love,
