Make the Memories

So today, I ask you to make the memories. Do the mundane things that seem pointless and unrewarding. Keep the traditions. Take the pictures.

Jesus Knew

I’ve taken a bit of time away from all of my media accounts again. I really felt like I needed to process and regroup before I could start writing again. I’ve been spending time in my yard, cleaning and redoing my gardens. Playing with my kids. Getting our chickens more used to us. And today,…

Facebook Perfect Lives

I started out my morning pretty happy.  I got snuggles from my toddler, my oldest came in to say good morning and get a hug.  Then my Dude came in and explained to me that he “didn’t drop it, there was just too much gravity.”  He never did explain to me what exactly he didn’t…

Blessed Isolation

Friends, this situation is so hard. And unfamiliar. And out of our control. We have the right to feel all of those things. We then have the obligation to feel the feelings, acknowledge them, and move on.

My first husband suffered from…

Blessings in the Ordinary

You have a choice every single day to wake up and look for the good.  And the more you look, the easier it becomes to find. 

Just What I Needed

If you’ve been reading my posts over the last few years, you know that life has felt kind of overwhelming at times.   It has even felt at times like there was no way to get out from under this huge cloud over me. Here’s a quick recap for those who dont know:  I had…
