In Others’ Words: Thoughts
I’d always had an interest in sign language and braille. And after visiting Gallaudet University, a college for the deaf and hard of hearing in Washington, DC, while writing a high school report, I selected special education as my college major.
That lasted all of one semester.
Because I asked myself this question: What one thing do I love enough that I wouldn’t mind doing it for the rest of my life?
I’d always loved words. Always loved writing. Always loved English in school — yes, even diagraming sentences, back when we did that.
And so, I changed my major to journalism — and never looked back.
Oh, sure, I put writing on the back-burner for a number of years as I figured out the whole mothering gig (and believe me, I had a lot to learn!). But in my heart, I was, and always had been, a writer.
Today’s quote spoke to that part of my heart — the truth that some things (reflected in our thoughts) never change. And that’s okay. Wait, it’s more than that. The passions that don’t disappear — even if they have to be set aside for a season — those are the ones that reflect the you that God made you to be.
