My Dog is Training Me

My dog was injured this week. For the first time,  I had to rush him to the vet. I was home alone when he got hurt and knew I couldn’t handle this on my own, so I called my best friend. Even though it was early in the morning, she came right away  to help […]

What Season Are You In?

  “ Be ready in season and out of season.” ~ 2 Timothy 4:2 Isn’t it funny how sometimes when you read something, you find yourself having  to reread it (maybe more than once) because the words just don’t soak in? Then there are those times when you pick up something to read and you’re totally […]

He Was Right

I wore my Fitbit today for the first time in a very long time. (I know how excited you must feel about this news!) My husband surprised me a few months ago–thinking it would help motivate me to walk. He did this as a result of hearing me complain (over and over) about how bad […]

You Know It’s Bad When a Funeral Director Gets Involved

You know that amazing feeling you get when you stumble upon something that just absolutely makes your day? Like…finding cash in your pocket that you didn’t even know you had?  I had something like that happen to me today. First, let me explain something that happened last Friday.

Finding Your Way

    When I was growing up, I thought I wanted to be a professional dancer on broadway. Thanks to my mom, I started taking lessons when I was about 3 years old. As a teen, I loved the pressure of learning several new dances at the same time. I put a lot of time […]
