Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

in danger of slipping over.

a second ago, i read jenny's mom's blog. i read about seeing cows out the window and getting into the truck to drive out to the edge of the property -- 'cause the edge is that far away.

i'm constantly on the edge. the edge of a traffic jam. the edge of a deadline. the edge of the 800-sqaure-feet i'm not even close to owning. the edge of running out of gas or burning the toast.

i'm on the edge of a breakdown.

i want the edge to be further away. i want to have to get in the truck and drive there. and when i get there, i want to be able to save a baby goat from dying.

I shouldn't, but I totally get that. I do. And I was there...an inch or two from the edge...less than 6 months ago. The whole "this too shall pass" is true. I promise. This is me, telling you, from about 10 feet from the edge. :)

The edge will get farther away soon. I promise. I was on the edge not so long ago and now it is a distant memory. This too shall pass.

But while the edge is still looming, some ranch therapy does the body good. We should have a bloggers day at our ranch in fredericksburg - half the day relaxing at the ranch's serene creek, half the day shopping! I'm taking the boys next weekend...just a thought... :)

Not to make light of what you're going through because I know it can be so hard. But what do you think would happen if you actually went over the edge?
At the risk of sounding looney, I HAVE been over the edge at least once or twice. And the vantage point there, although not always pleasant, taught me something.

I'm an edge-dweller. So I'm a believer in the "If you're not living on the edge, You're taking up too much space" T-shirt.
Come on over... the water's fine...
Love you girl!
