Tonight I’m in the in-between

Tomorrow morning I’m chasing the Wheelmobile to St. Louis to audition for Wheel of Fortune!

It’s a huge risk and gamble for me to just step out there and say, here I am and I’m great and I’d be a great contestant on your show!

But I’m going. I’m  doing it.

This week I signed up to be a Compassion blogger. I’ve read several other Compassion bloggers and found my heart growing more and more tender. I’ve walked with Emily Freeman through her journey to the Philippines. I’m searching for a child to sponsor myself, but I haven’t connected with the right one yet. Soon.

I’m in the in-between.

I’ve stepped away from the shy quiet and just stay at home self. I’m ready to start taking some big risks. But I’m not there yet. I haven’t actually begun. The first step is still tomorrow.

The in-between is that big breath you take before diving in the pool, before starting the first line of the song. You’re committed and it’s happening, but it’s not here yet.

That’s where I am today. Tonight.

In-between.

  1. Hi! You were the link before mine at the link up today! What a great sense of adventure you have…best of luck at your Wheel of Fortune audition tomorrow! I recently became a Compassion blogger too and my husband and I are still deciding where we want to sponsor a child. I’m looking forward to coming back and reading about Wheel of Fortune and Compassion and everything else! 🙂
