Would you please?

In my spare time (LOL) I’m reading a book that is really challenging me. Actually, I’m reading a few because whenever I have a minute I grab the nearest book and start reading. I love to read…probably why I’m an English teacher. The author of one of the books I’m reading shared that she wasn’t… Continue reading Would you please?

Been A Long Time

You know how when you haven’t talked with someone for a long time it is hard to know where to start…that’s where I am. It’s been forever and I don’t know what to tell you…what to share. I’ve been trying to figure out what keeps me from allowing my fingers to move across the keyboard… Continue reading Been A Long Time

A Porch in a Storm

There is a tremendous thunder storm going on as I sit quietly on my back porch**. It’s a little damp, a little loud, a little chilly but it is a lot nice. I love it. I can’t tell you how blessed I am to have this sweet moment to think. On one hand I feel… Continue reading A Porch in a Storm

Been Awhile

I love writing, but lately I’ve found it difficult to click on that post button. I believe part of the reason, besides being too busy to put two coherent thoughts together, is that a few voices in my head have made it seem like I really should be in a better place by now. Some… Continue reading Been Awhile

Invisible

I was standing in the shower thinking. It might be the only place that I can think because it drowns out all the other noises in my house, including the child jiggling the door knob and calling my name. I was thinking how I so want to write something encouraging.  Right now God has me… Continue reading Invisible

Just 10 Facts and 6 To-Dos

There is no two ways about it.  I’ve become an anxious woman…again. I struggled with this years ago, and here I am again. Fearful, concerned, worried…anxious. It’s a chest-crushing fear.  A wake up in the middle of the night worry.  An Oh my goodness!  Am I having a heart-attack? anxious. And for the life of… Continue reading Just 10 Facts and 6 To-Dos

My Prayer for You

I love letters.  Not the actual letters…like “a, b, c, d…” although they certainly are handy…but I love hand-written letters.  It’s been a disappointment of my busy life.  That I can’t write long letters. I’m relegated to short texts with massive amounts of typos.   I suppose I could say each blog is a long… Continue reading My Prayer for You

Love Like Crazy

Oh am I having a pity-party today or what?!. I’m all sad and lonely and feeling unchosen and unloved. And I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get out of this funk I find myself in. I’m trying to get into shape so I can’t sneak chocolate or drink a Coca-Cola… Continue reading Love Like Crazy

My First Book Review

A few months ago I had the privilege of being asked to write a review for a book by Shannon Upton entitled, Building Your Home:  A Faithful Mom’s Guide to Organizing Home and Family. I love a good book on organization.  I feel like it has been my life’s goal since my first born took… Continue reading My First Book Review
