On Long Walks and Mercy…(5 Minute Friday)

Well, the link for Lisa-Jo’s 5 Minute Friday is now 10:00 instead of 12 midnight-ish. And guess what? This tired mamma who wants to get her write on found mercy on Thursday night! 
And then I had to save this from Twitter. Because I am sentimental AND I really am horrible at Twitter BUT look, I got a twitter #fmfparty HINT from the Queen of the 5 Minute Write herself! 
So there I was, tired and then BAM. Revived. This least likely to Tweet successfully had 5 minutes of Twitter happiness. Whoohoo. OK. Perfect word. Here we go…Mercy.
There could not be a better word for right now. This night. Almost Friday and today left me feeling completely…done. I never understood how this one thing could take so much right out of a person. I never really understood. But here I stand. Motherhood. Parenting. Call it what you want. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I mean, add to the fact that my daughter actually is convinced that she IS the girl who knows everything. In some ironic twist of fate that leaves my mother chuckling, I am humbled daily by the lessons presented to me. Not on a silver platter. I’m learning painful lessons, that I don’t really want to learn. I mean at least this way. I mean, what mother really wants to take a long walk on a short pier? Who says that? I do. I say it jokingly, but I have learned, it is not something I should not say at all. Because His mercy is present. And lessons are painful, but needful. Humility, patience, perseverance…grace are not just words, but keys to a better way. A way I am still learning. By grace, through faith and all of His mercy moments. 
Join the fun!
