Mama's Headgear

Wearing several hats in the course of one day does present a challenge for the person who always would "rather be writing." As I don my teacher's bonnet in our homeschool, I'm often called away to put on the big, floppy chef's cap. Today was no exception. I don't know what kind of headdress a bookkeeper would adorn herself with, but I certainly wore it for a good bit of today while doing the family and business finances. Then the role which calls for the little janitorial cap was getting neglected a bit more than I'd like to admit, so I couldn't let too much time slip by without tossing that one on for a moment or two. There are more, but you get the idea.

I can quickly take a few minutes to blog (my great love), but only a few. Maybe, if I'm a good girl, I can throw off all those headpieces I've been wearing and grab a few more precious moments before bed to finish some revision work.

I wouldn't trade any of these hats though, they are each an indication of the Lord's blessings to this grateful homemaker, even while trying to be a writer.

Okay Maxine ... just one more comment. I love the variety of art you use. It makes your blog a warm an inviting place to visit.

Just so you know, I have another blog, The Storyteller, where I post my photos and scripture. There's a link to it on Words from the Heart.

Blessings, Francine

I love the picture you connected to this post! Yes, we wear many hats as women, but we thank God for them. Hope you got some time to write :-)

The headgear of many hats. Oh so true! I do find it a litte frustrating when I feel that urge to write and so many other thing are blocking my path. I wouldn't trade any of those hats either. I suppose the struggle lives on.

Thanks for the chuckle.
