5 minute Friday on Change...

You know what I can change?  me.  my attitude.  my inside.  my prayer.  my hope.  my dream.  I'm working on it... God is working on me.

 I love them too much to worry and cry because I can't change them.  I love them too much to wish away even one more day because of a mutated gene or whatever unknown we battle... i need to change my focus, change my vision.

I pray for change of heart, my own, the worlds, to see the value and amazement that is bundled up in each and every single little fiber of their being.  I pray for God's vision to focus more on what he desires for me, what he wants my life to be, what he has in store for us.

I will change.  Life is too short and time is too precious to stay the same.  God will change me.  

I am listening.  I am ready.  I will change.

edit... an amazing revision

so... I was  amazingly happy to report that 40 people had worn green and posted on my timeline... tonight I went back to look at the pictures. HELLO!!! 176 PEOPLE wore green and posted pictures-I was just 136 shy :-)
Soon I'll be ready to tell you all about Miami- the 13th International Fragile X Conference, and Michigan- a week at the  Lake.  For right now I'm happy to be sleeping in my own bed,  cooking in my own kitchen, making lists in my beat-up notebooks and drinking water from my faucet that doesn't taste like metal fish or putrid eggs!!   ahhhhhh..... no place like home.

And... I'd love to tell you I have a picture of all 3 children smiling and looking at the camera... but that'd be a big fat lie.  I think the one above is just about as good as it's gonna get ;-)
