P is for Peace

Peace is something that is increasingly harder to achieve as the world throws the unexpected at you on a seemingly never ending basis. It is easy to get caught up in the things that can bring you down while forgetting that even though they may be small you have blessings in your life. I am learning what it is to achieve peace in my life for the first time in years.

My youngest daughter and I moved in September, March and April. The moves were drastic, and unsettling because of our being completely unprepared and then not so drastic and unsettling. We were a little more prepared for the final move. What I mean by prepared is that I actually got to tell the baby in advance that we were moving, and she was not yanked up in the middle of the night to move because of something someone else did.

There was no regression during the last move, in fact we have seen progress instead. The baby is doing well in her new school, and the communication with the teacher is open. It is nice to have that once again. We have even had a few outings of our own by ourselves that made the days here better.

The adjustments are being made slowly and we are once again preparing in advance for changes. Peace is a nice feeling. I have only been sick once since we have gotten to our new home, and the baby's independence is showing. She is getting better at making sure she follows directions, at home anyway.

I am driving farther distances little by little which means that once again my nerves are coming under my control. It is a strange feeling to have peace, and even stranger is the feeling that it is just me and my little girl for the long haul.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
