I reach for my husband’s hand and heart and he reach’s back. I reach for my son’s hand and heart and he reach’s back. I reach for my God and He reaches back. When I was young enough to still have a locker at Mt. Ararat high school I had a hand written note to myself taped in there. It said, Reach for your dreams and your dreams will reach for you. I remember when I was an even younger girl wishing I was tall enough for my feet to reach the end of the couch while I was lying down. I wanted to grow up. I remember reaching for my mother from a hospital bed after I had been in a horrible crash but, more importantly, I remember her reaching back. Holding my hand. Assuring me I would be okay. I remember reaching the front of the church the day I married my husband. That day I touched a dream come true. I remember reaching for the door as I was about to enter my new home, our new haven. I remember reaching for my pen when my heart was hurting, time and time again and allowing it to pour out the words that couldn’t be spoken out loud. I remember reaching for my car keys to go pick my son up from his last day of public school which led to this homeschool journey we are on now.
I remember starting this blog where I decided to reach out to you. To the mothers and fathers and friends and believer’s that I may have never known without it. I’m hoping you will reach back 🙂
