A Better World

I  think I’m officially a mommy blogger, as all my posts of late center around my baby.

But how can you blame me?  She has yet to lose that new baby smell as my husband jokingly says.

She is my obsession.
She will always be my obsession.

She is sleeping in my arms as I type, and oh, if only you could smell her!  She’s scrubbed clean, dressed for church, and doesn’t smell like sour milk.  Who knows if we’ll actually make it to church.  It’s so easy to hold her and let the minutes tick past, as if there is nothing more important than this.  Is there?

I find myself struggling with that very thing.  I must now make a conscious effort to find balance, especially in other relationships. I must give my loved ones some attention too.  They’re being neglected I feel.

A mother is a true servant to her children, sacrificing her time, food, showers, make-up, and all kinds of other previously thought important things to meet the needs of her babies.  We are called to be servants to everyone, just as Jesus Christ came to be a servant o all.  If only I could show love to every human being I encounter as much as I show love to this baby in my arms.  After all, isn’t love “action” rather than “feeling”?

I challenge myself to this greater love for others and it is HARD for me.  But I desperately need the world to be a better place for this darling girl to grow up in.  We CAN make a difference in someone’s life.  Let’s all try, okay?

For her.
And all the others.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences. I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak. A few things you might discover about me: •Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things •My family makes this world a better place for me to live in •I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either •I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin •My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world. “When you look for the bad in mankind, expecting to find it, you surely will." Pollyanna I’m always eager to meet new online friends, so leave a comment and introduce yourself.

  1. That is a beautiful thought. I know that same Mother’s love for my children. The world would be a lot better place if we could show that love to ALL our neighbors. Even the ones we don’t really like all that well. (those especially)! Thank you Angel for your blog, I love them all.

  2. I remember watching Johnson & Johnson commercials before giving birth. The commercial ended with, “A baby changes everything.” I find I use that ‘cliche’ often. There is no truer sentiment, as a baby truly changes everything – priorities, outlook, heart, energy, soul, temperament, etc.

  3. Oh boy, Lenore Diane is so right on about babies changing everything! And Angel, I believe you DO change the world for the better by being the amazing teacher you have been and will be, both to your students and your beautiful, precious daughter! You more than likely are not even aware of the changes you have already made in a child’s life by being their teacher and impacting their lives every day you are with them! Children live and learn by example and knowing that the Lord is your “Teacher”, I am comforted in the belief that you are an exemplary educator! Blessings to you and yours during this Holy Week. p.s. … the adorable shirt says it all 🙂 she is a “keeper”! Until next time .. Donna H.

  4. Angel, you are absolutely perfect in my eyes, as a teacher….which I have only heard accolades, and now as a Mother, which I see with my own eyes! I am sooooooo proud of you! It’s ao funny to me that you are so sweet, kind and soft spoken, and I am so LOUD and boistrous, that one day you said to me, “We only speak softly to Emma Kate.” And, then, here I come, loud and singing loud…..but, I think she likes me, anyway!
