The Busy Work of Stopping Me

Reminding myself of this again, and again, and again….


The searing pain was second only to the acidic burn perforating a hole into my brain. Words do not do the fiasco justice. I had suffered with a sinus infection for two weeks. I had two days until I was to travel, alone, well with my mom, but no kids, to California for The Mount Hermon Writers Conference. Advancing my book was the icing on the metaphorical cake of sleeping through the night for the first time since 1995.

“Why didn’t you go to the doctor?” you ask.

Because the doctor meant steroids. Steroids meant no sleep (and weight gain.) Besides, that’s why we have Pintrest.

About jamiamerine

I am a wife, mom, & seeker of joy! I love to share funny and inspirational tales with my fellow moms. I fully believe that God intended laughter to be a form of rest and worship. I have a few kids. I have a few years on me. I have a great husband. And I love to laugh. I studied home economics in college, I can cook just about anything, but do not ask me to sew. In my graduate work I studied education and human development, I consider my life continuing education, my children are my ongoing thesis. If they survive that, I will let you know! I write non-fiction for laughter, respite, and inspiration. I also am in the process of submitting my first fiction mystery and have two more in the works! Mom life is hard work. My prayer for my readers is that, even if it you just have five minutes, you can be inspired and encouraged today. Keep it short and sweet... rest in Jesus girlfriend.
