I love the Lord as much as a broken person can; love and loved by my husband; blessed by 5 amazing little people who have helped me to learn much about me; grateful to serve even more as God gives them to me; blessed every day to be a home school teacher; college student; I hope to change the world by loving as many people as possible, because there is nothing greater than loving another.

I read an interesting bit of wisdom on Facebook today. An old high school friend had a great note passing along the wisdom of many clients he has had who have all lived over 100 years. There was some excellent wisdom, of course. One that has stuck with me today was about fillers....gossip, talking just to fill time. I am ashamed as I think about all the fillers I have in my life, and how even some helpers may have turned to fillers. I think I have so structured some things in my life, that my children lack common sense. Some days I wonder if they can do anything without being told by either me or some system I have established (I admit to being anal retentive to the point of color coding many things...ouch). I also wonder if the structure was created so I could have more filler time. I am missing my children and think that I have enough time not to miss them, I am simply caught up in fillers. John and I are considering getting rid of cable, internet and land line. We could save some $$ and I get the added bonus of fewer fillers.....hhhhmmmm just thinking out loud. I can't help but wonder how much I have already missed b/c I was busy on the computer, on Facebook, on my blog, watching some Hospital Drama or amazing Sci-Fci-Hero thriller-filler....again I ponder. I'll go to bed now, much too late to be up anyways, and before I fall asleep, I'll pray for filler removal, which I suspect will make me a much less empty person, and one more likely, properly full. Nighty night.
