the ponderings of a mother

These are the ponderings of a mother in love with her children, both in my arms and in the grave. Some of these ponderings are quite emotional, some are funny, others contemplative and spiritual. All are sincere. May these writings bless you in many ways and bring you closer to the one, true God and Redeemer of all things.

That little red line

Have you ever been typing in a Microsoft Word document or in an email and that little red line comes up under the word you just misspelled? Now, I won the school spelling bee in 5th grade, and 20 years later I am quite proud of that :), but that little red line will be following me my entire life.
Two days ago I was typing Jonan’s name in an email and that little red line came up, and you know what? I was a little pissed. His name is not wrong, I thought. Who are you to tell me, computer, that my son’s name needs a little red line? Ahem.
Then today I was typing out Jonan’s full name and to my surprise “Jonan” did not get a red line…victory over the technology! Then I typed “Eilam” and there is was again. How dare you? You are just a piece of technology telling me about how to spell…you…you…! Grr.
And then you know what? I laughed out loud and had a goofy smile on my face and Jeff asked what was going on. I told him that I was getting really pissed at a little red line. Oh, how silly we can be…I can be.
But just for the record, dear computer, his name is perfect :)
