Worry

Is there something you are stressing out about today? Your kids? Finances? Your health? I think we all have something that adds about 100 plus pounds of pressure on our shoulders. Maybe that’s why I’ve been gaining weight? 😉 Couldn’t have been all those extra sweets I was stuffing in my mouth this week! I […]

Do you want a trophy or do you want the truth?

Don’t you just love it when you hear a conversation that doesn’t involve you, but it stays with you for a long time?  There were three eleven(ish) year old boys who were having  swimming races across the pool. One of the boys would pretty much throw a fit every time because he never won. Before their last […]

You Were Born to Stand Out

It’s girls night out. Mid afternoon you finally call your best friend to see what she’s wearing tonight because you have no idea what to wear. You don’t have a lot to choose from, but you don’t want to wear a dress when everyone else is wearing jeans. Or, you were thinking about wearing shorts, […]

What Makes You Smile?

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness. I say to myself. “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” ~Lamentations 3:22-24 I came downstairs to look for my husband, and since I couldn’t find him […]

That One Thing

Do you have that one thing that you’re afraid to admit you’ve never done? I mean like something that even your closest friends assume you’ve done because they know you know it’s important. (Voted, had flu shots, immunizations, your teeth cleaned – to name a few) Let me give you a little background so that […]

How Do You Know?

I am a mom to 3 sons. Although they are adults now, I can’t help but think back to the days when I would have to tell one of them (or all 3 of them at the same time, which was the WORST!) why they couldn’t go outside without a winter coat on, play one more […]
