Every Step – Entry No. 9

Women are multi-taskers.  We are.  I have been known to make the most out of a flight of stairs by carrying the vacuum, Windex, cleaning rags, Pledge and a small child – facilitating only one trip up the stairs. 

I do dishes while talking on the phone.

I fold laundry and watch Conference.

I drive and pray.

You do it too, I know it.  We are multi-taskers – there’s really no way around it, if we want to get everything done that needs to be done.

But last April, I took a break from being a multi-tasker.  For two blissful days I was singly minded.   (Singly is a funny word. I just spell-checked it to see if it was really a word.)  I only focused on ONE THING…

Songwriting.

That was it – just writing a song.  No dinner to prepare, no sweeping, no carpool, no Costco runs, no grade school homework.  Just writing.

I loved it.

Every minute of it.

As you already know, it is nearly impossible to have just one focus at home.  So, a few author friends and I went to a friend’s cabin in Heber.  We all had projects we were working on and the idea of two days of solitude, solice and focus was too much to resist.  We spent just shy of 48 hours writing – with only smalls breaks here and there for nutrition’s sake.  It was awesome.

“Find Me” was born in that quiet, mountain setting. 

Hope you enjoy.   Find Me SNIPPET

Blog to you soon,

Hilary

    I can’t wait for this cd to come out! I am 26, been married 4 years and have 3 kids now. A 3yr old, 18mth, and 3 month (only 1 of them were planned:) )..and so much of the time, I don’t know how I’m going to do this! I’m so grateful to my Mom for giving me one of your cds. I listen to it daily, and it calms me down and gives me hope that I can make it through each day. Thank You!

    This song is SO BEAUTIFUL! I’m falling more and more in love with it each time I listen. I currently have a loved one that is suffering from severe depression and is suicidal. None of us know what to do for him anymore. He’s resisting help. He can’t seem to reach out and grasp onto His Savior right now. I think of him when I listen to this song. Those times when we are so stuck, and we desperately need rescuing. This song reminds me to pray for those sweet individuals.
