When I was upset and panicking as I worried whether I was pregnant with my Fifth child or not, a wave of peace came over me and I heard a gentle whisper within :
Thus began an unexpected life where I discovered fulfilment and joy mothering nine children on a hobby farm. My children literally were my salvation, the key to my heart and the way God chose to heal and transform me into who I really am..a child of God, no more and no less.
Friendship Friday – Change
After surrendering any thought of a career and raising nine kids for 33 years, a whole new vocation has begun. God is opening the door to writing and I am filled with joy.
This post was written Fridayhttp://themotherofnine9.wordpress.com about the ability to change now that my youngest is off to university. My closing words:
I have even more time to write and I am thrilled. So in answer to this Friday’s prompt,
“Yes, I do have the ability to change. After all my great grand-mother lived till 95, my grandmother 86 and my mother is a young 82-year-old. Heck, my husband/s grandmother is 100 and still smiling. Thus begins the next 40 year period of my life. It will be …. interesting.”
A new door is opening.
A wonderful friend, SoundEagle reinforced my new life in a comment:
SoundEagle agrees… “now you find yourself once again”. It seems that longevity runs in your families. And if life begins at sixty, then indeed forty years of jornalism await you, and SoundEagle hopes to be among the first to witness Melanie walking down the Yellow Brick Road with opeheart and welcoming arms (or wings).
