Be You #Thisis38

I have always been a pretty independent person.  I am proud of my individual views and ideas, even if they differ from the norm or the popular opinion. I am the “reliable” one.  Family members and friends often call me, reach out to me when they have questions, need help or just a shoulder to […]

Thinking #Thisis38

I spent many hours yesterday just thinking.  I didn’t speak much, I was just thinking.  This is unusual for me.  Not so much the thinking, but the not saying any of it out loud part. I was thinking about how we get where we are.  When we are happy, are we really happy or are […]

Do Your Thing

I am currently reading a devotional called Savor by Shauna Niequist.  It is wonderful, it is 365 days long and I started it back in May and I am just reading through my year until I get back to where I started.  Who says you can only start a dated event/book/reading on January 1st? Anyway […]

Ten Minutes: Please Play

Today my devotional was spot on!  As it seems to be almost daily! The topic today was “please play” and it went on to talk about how important play is among the stress and seriousness of everyday life.  It is so true! I talk about this in my training’s ALL THE TIME, but have a […]

Why Today?

I want to write a post today.  I am not sure why today?  I mean, I haven’t written in over a month. I have quite a few things going on in my heart, mind and home right now.  All things that I have realized are “Making Time For Me”.  Even though, I have taken time […]

Yes, we met online

This is still one of my favorite posts.  I get asked all the time how Paul and I met. When I tell people that we met online I get a very mixed review of responses.  You know what???  I am OK with that.  It is what it is and it is working 🙂 I am […]

FBF: Therapy Yesterday

A fellow blogger brought this post to my attention this week.  She said that it somehow ended up on her blog feed, so she read it.  Then she commended me on the relationship with Jess.  Well, for those of you who are wondering, Jess and I are still good.  It has been about 9 months […]

FBF: Happy Birthday Mom

One year ago I wrote this post for my Mother on her birthday.  Today, I share it in the same spirit.  Happy Birthday Mom.  I love you! This morning I woke up thinking, I’m happy it is my “Whatever Wednesday” on here so that I can pay tribute to my mother. Today is my mom’s […]
