We have entire segments of society devoted to getting it on paper, making sure the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed. People who make paper, people who shred paper, people who sell paper, people who review paper, people who write on paper and people who’s writing on paper gets published – for the people who want to buy more paper.
I am one of those people in more ways than one.
Today I am a mom who has agreements and contracts and house rules, all on paper, printed nicely, displayed prominently, featuring signatures and dates. All to no avail.
It could have been notarized, gold leafed and signed by the president. It still wouldn’t make any difference as far as enforcement or code of honor is concerned.
It’s so disappointing.
It makes me think of that phrase, something about it, “not being worth the paper it’s printed on.” I can’t wait to see what our therapist has to say about this…
And yet, in spite of this paper debacle, today marks a day that this would be writer got published!
My devotion, in a collection called “Penned from the Heart”. It’s a start. And unlike some people I know, I will honor what I put down on paper.
If you would like your own copy drop me a note. Paper not required.
