Moments of Shock

via Daily Prompt: Shock 

The look that spreads across your face when a person answers their video phone in their tighty whities..

The feeling you get when you pick up the remote control, deciding to learn how to use your video phone, accidentally connecting to a Sign Language Interpreter that could have been one of your colleagues… and you’re wearing the smallest towel you own..

The moment you remember you had chicken sausage cooking on the stove and now they look like little poops in a skillet..

Or the time you took your daughter to the diner when she was 2 and she dumped an entire bottle of syrup on her pancakes in the 2 seconds you turned to talk to your friend..

It’s the moment you get the news that you got the job you’ve been vying for..

And the second you find out your daughter shares the same shoe size as you..

The night the mammographer tells you that your mammo & breast ultrasound are normal and they don’t need to see you back for a year..

And the morning you wake up to the smell of coffee and breakfast that you didn’t make yourself after how many years??

Oh, the many ways shock comes into our lives, disguising itself as something new.

For the last 17 years, I have worked as a Sign Language Interpreter in a variety of settings such as educational, medical, mental health & video relay interpreting. Prior to becoming an interpreter, writing was my passion & in the last 2 years, I've been drawn back to it. Doors have been opening in ways I did not expect. I was miraculously invited to be a part of a Christian Writer's group by a co-worker & now dear friend. After attending two meetings, this friend and I both knew that we were to begin writing a compilation of some sort with all the members of our group. Soon after it was discussed with the group, we began our planning & work on "The Christian Herald". Though we are still in the infancy stages of this new endeavor, we are excited to see what God will be doing through the work He inspired us to do. I'm embracing this time where writing is again being placed in the forefront of my mind and no longer sitting idle on the back burner. The joy I'm experiencing and that need to record my thoughts is fueling my soul. I feel a deep sense of satisfaction but most of all, I am more connected to the one who lead me in this direction.
