The Misadventures of Cheri

Mortifying my kids one swimsuit at a time

I can’t believe I’m doing this again!

Yep, I’m doing NaBloPoMo for the month of April.  I did it last year in June and it nearly killed me.  The challenge from NaBloPoMo is to post a blog every day for one month.  I need a kick start in blogging again and this just might be it.

The theme for April 2010 is BIG.  I have had some big changes in my life since last June.  Huge.  Horrible.  Good.  Gigantic. 

Last year I was too stressed out with my mom losing her battle with cancer and I’m surprised I was able to post at all.  But now, things are going great, I can actually talk about my mom’s death without crying and we’ve had a couple of big changes around here that are wonderful. 

I’ll announce the first big change on April 1!!  Stay tuned, if you dare.  Because at some point, the posts are going to get very, very boring and I’ll have to apologize.


So I don’t forget

This post really is intended for me.  Because the last time I tried to remember, I had a bit of trouble.  If I write it down here, problem solved. 

Soon after my mom died I had a dream about her.  I dreamed that I got an e-mail from her in heaven.  I couldn’t e-mail her back, she said, and that was okay.  There were just a few things she wanted me to know that she was excited about.

She told me when she went on walks that the wilderness never, ever ended and it was so beautiful.  She was also taking an art class and getting ready to have a massage.

She ended the e-mail with, “Whatever you do, don’t miss Jesus.”  To me that meant to look for Him in the everyday-ness of my life and to not miss everything He has in store for me.

It was the happiest and most peaceful dream I’ve ever had.
