TITLE: Option A is Really No Option At All

Basking in the sun on a warm sunny day, I look up to see my children playing. “What bliss!” I say to myself. As I feel the light breeze from the South, I wonder, “Can life get any better?” The children are now arguing over who gets the blue hoolahoop! I lay there wondering, “Do I ignore this situation or leave my wonderful world of paradise?” Option A sounds best to me. After a few minutes, the arguing stops; option A was definitely the right choice. I then hear a small whimper. I glance up to see that my two-year old has scraped her knee.

The garage door opens as my husband’s car rolls in from another long day at work. Dinner has been put off, as it often is, and I wonder if he’ll say anything to me about it. I close my eyes hoping that he does not. While he strolls into the house and walks upstairs to change his clothes, I carefully sneak into the kitchen and throw some chicken pot pies into the oven. I am now able to say that our scrumptious dinner is in the oven.

In my heart, I hear a gentle whisper, “You know that I have called you to take care of your family. I have blessed you with these children and a husband who loves you.” I hear the voice almost everyday. Yet I choose to ignore it. Each day, however, the voice gets softer. I look forward to when I do not hear it anymore.

Ahh, we really don't like this character, do we?! I liked the way you didn't repent her, but let us see for ourselves and judge for ourselves that Option A is sometimes not an option at all.

Powerful message! I think I'll get off the computer and go care for my children.

Excellent. Your few words say so much.

This article is well thought out. It shows a side of human character that we do not want to admit we have.
