It’s been several weeks since my last entry. It’s been crazy around here! There are some days when life is threatening to run me over. There are some days I think it has. It makes me long for the days of childhood when there wasn’t a care in the world more than what mom was fixing for dinner that night.

My family lived way out in the country. There were not a lot of people around and us kids were forced to entertain ourselves. I would often spend my days playing in the woods with my imaginary friends and those heroes I wished were my friends.

As far as super heroes go, us girls did not have as many options as the boys. We pretty much had Wonder Woman, but she was all I needed in a hero. I would watch the television show each week and then go out into the woods to re-enact the episode along with Wonder Woman’s glorious feats. I pretended to hear of danger and then I would spin around and around until, at least in my mind, I turned into Wonder Woman.

Then there was the time when the spinning didn’t go so well. I spun myself dizzy and ran head on into a tree. Thank goodness my faced was there to stop me or I could really have gotten hurt! The black eye I received lasted about two months. Words cannot express how embarrassed I was to tell my parents what had happened! After all these years, I have often wondered if Wonder Woman ever spun herself dizzy.

The next entry is all about communication in a marriage. If you are married or are contemplating marriage, this is one you won’t want to miss!
