You can choose courage or you can choose comfort (but) you cannot have both.                                                                  Brene Brown

I have always chosen courage because comfort never seemed to be an option.

**Strict Catholic, career military upbringing.

**Survived an attack by two men who made me jump out a 3rd story window with them.
(I got away when I hit the ground.)
No worries tho. As they told the police.
“We weren’t going to kill her or anything. We were just going to take her in the woods and rape her.”
(I was 20 yrs. old and had just given birth to my first child two weeks prior to this attack.)

**Single mom, 4 kids 
(No welfare, no child support. I did this crazy thing called, work.)

**Stage 4 cancer survivor.

Nope. I’m pretty sure comfort was never an option and honestly, I’m okay with that.

PROMPT = Disobedience

I’m not a fan of the word disobedience, or it’s step-sister, disobey.
I think it sounds too harsh and it feels suffocating. It conjures up visions of private schools and principal’s offices and the military and those 1950’s husbands.

AND YET…. Were it not for the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden we wouldn’t be here.
So, there’s that.
Do any of you have words you’re not a fan of? Words that maybe sound too harsh? 
Words that conjure up visions of 
(fill in the blank but not with porn please.)

I hope your Monday has started out well for all of you. Some of you I see on Facebook and I KNOW your Mondays have started out spectacularly well. Happy days are always a bonus.

I’m full speed ahead on Christmas projects/orders. Started another afghan today. These seem to be a big hit. I have a couple more on the list. I also brought my sewing machine out. This is such a gloriously busy time of the year for me. I love it all but it doesn’t leave you with much time in the day or night!

Continue to enjoy the week ahead and I’ll be back sooner than later. I am getting some reading and commenting in so that’s a plus.
If I haven’t gotten to you I really am heading your way.
