All throughout her childhood she defied girly things and when the adolescent years hit nothing really changed. Meshe could have cared less about what other girls thought or what she should have been wearing to fit in. Meshe was a fun junkie.
The fun did not end when adulthood came a calling. Like a dandelion seed riding the wind she flew from one adventure to another. Always happy with where the wind had brought her; it was, riding the wind.
At some point a stranger spoke those words to her. It was a casual sentence, no malice or harm intended and Meshe thought nothing of it. But as the nights grew long and the days grew short the words of that sentence lay in wait.
First they came as a whisper, over and over the wispy words come but Meshe paid no mind. As the days passed the words grew louder and stronger, the voice would not let go. It spoke directly to her soul.
It became apparent; heed the soul speaking words or silence she would never know. In a valiant effort to quite the voice Mesha broke down and obeyed. Why did the stranger speak those words to her?
That small sentence uttered in concern, had made poor Meshe give up riding the wind. No longer was she that dandelion seed, the adventures now but that of memories. Her little girl curiosity had been forever tarnished.
Sorry no end to this story yet. The questions I hear you asking; “What words?” and the answer, “You have to grow up.” Why the name “Meshe?” Come on think about it… me is she, Meshe.
Now on another note… I’d like you to check out this book trailer. My blog buddy Jessica Bell has release her new book and all she asks is that we fling this little video out there… that I can do. You can also check out blog,
