The Gypsy Mama. We receive a one word writing prompt each week and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for today is RED.
Red just happens to be my favorite color. When I moved cross country to Phoenix, I drove my red corvette. I was in my twenties and single, after all.
Red seems like such a bold color for a gal who isn't all that bold. But in many ways it symbolizes much about me.
I was the child who was forced to sit on the sidelines because of a heart defect. I was the child who walked door to door with my mother raising money for the American Heart Association as we carried our red signs. I was the adult who became a cardiovascular nurse.
Red to me is passion. And I am passionate about Jesus, my family, the many people I took care of over the years as a nurse, and the children I get to work with every day.
Yes, red is my favorite color.
Blessings and love,
