this is the beginning.
in thinking of a title for my first post many words came to mind, but the one that stood out for me has huge implications for what is happening to me physically, spiritually, emotionally and intellectually. up until recently i have looked at the world somewhat exclusively. i have come to find that life is more full and real with an inclusive approach, especially with people. this does not ignore the hurt that people, in particular, inflict on themselves and others, but it helps to see that others are hurting. my hope is that as i include others into my thoughts, heart and prayers i can begin to see the world as god intended it to be.
forgive my vague quasi-intellectual ramblings
now for more down to earth: you've heard, possibly, the expression "...busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kickin' contest!" for those that know me i have an injury that for now, maybe longer, leaves me with only one arm and hand that works well. so, i am officially, based on personal experience, changing the aforementioned adage to "....busier than a one-armed man trying to change a poopy diaper that has a very dissatisfied little girl in it who would like very much to get up and roam free!"
