“Now ‘enry you knowd that God ain’t no author of no confusion! You best be a figuring out jest what it is you’s supposed to be a doin’ about that there situation.”

To this day, I hear those words ringing in my ears. Granny knew God like Bill Cosby knows comedy. She would speak to Him like a long time friend that came to visit each week for Sunday dinner of chicken, green beans and made from scratch cornbread.

Oh how I miss her when I get myself in these situations. Why can’t I find the answers that she always seemed to find like fleas find dogs? No matter the situation she called on God and had an answer before I could even figure out how to start my sentence.

So here I sit.

And sit.

And sit some more.

Waiting for a clear sense of direction. Waiting for a flicker of focus. Waiting for words of wisdom.

And nothing becomes clear. I’m still confused. I still have no idea which story to write for this weeks challenge.

I’m just still confused.

Sorry Granny!

I loved this--your granny's voice rang out loud and clear, and the rural flavor is charming in your writing.

I wish you had taken this further, and instead of making it very specific to the Writing Challenge (it's always best to avoid mentioning the challenge in your entry), applied it to some area of your life more relatable to a wide range of readers. Better still, if some other wisdom from Granny had helped you resolve your confusion.

This cute little essay definitely warrants some additional attention.

Wow! I loved what you wrote! I don't know if this is how you write all the time but I look forward to reading more of your writing. I wanted it to go on longer.

Awww...everybody loves a Granny. And you are blessed to have a Granny whose best friend was the Lord. Thanks for telling us "what Granny would do". I like your "grannyese" (granny language). :)
