Grace

A gentle reminder to be gracious in your speech. To think about what you are saying and how, especially around young ears. Teaching them about how what you say and to whom matters. That being our kindness and tolerance should be noticed in our words. Happy Thursday Friends. May you find your words to be […]

Honesty is the Best Policy.

I’m currently doing a devotional called “Parenting God’s Way.” This morning the focus was on instilling ethical behavior in our children. “Stress the rewards for honesty, including the blessing of a clear conscience. Encourage your children to understand that even if their dishonesty isn’t discovered, their own conscience will trouble them.” I’ve never seen it […]

Tuesday’s Thoughts 5/28

I have an affirmation app on my phone. At 7am everyday, I get sent a series of affirmations that are all related. Today, this was what I received. I’ve really lost focus of my morning yoga and even “eating right”. Though, I haven’t been stressing about it like I normally would. I’ve just accepted the […]

You Control You

I have felt like this for a very long time. My husband and I have conversations about this regularly.

Especially when most of them are to benefit raising well rounded children. However, sometimes you just need to rest. Luckily, this weekend we get that. All 6 of our […]

Substitute Teaching

I’ve taken on this wonderful new role in my life. That of the substitute teacher. About 9 years ago now I had started the process. Then things got rocky with my ex and it was put on the back burner. Never really to be thought about again until a month or so ago. At my […]

Progress

When something unexpected comes out of nowhere and you don’t FREAK OUT… that’s progress! I don’t do well with change. Specifically if that change deals directly with my time, my money or my children. It’s OK to not like it when things change. Necessary though to think, is there anything that I can do? Is […]
