Thankful Thursday: Long Time

I feel like it has been so long since I have posted on here.  Perhaps the longest since I started really taking this seriously back in early 2016. That is OK though.  There was something about moving that relaxed me.  That set me free a bit if you will.  I haven’t been stressing about allContinue reading “Thankful Thursday: Long Time”

Teenage Spotlight: 4/1

The scene opens on the dimly lit room of the protagonist,  a careless human being hidden amongst 4 brightly colored blankets like a human heap. You’d not recognize it when you see it at first, at least, not as a living creature, until the curtains are drawn and a sharp beam of light comes in,Continue reading “Teenage Spotlight: 4/1”

Making Time For Me in 6 Beautiful Ways

This past week was pretty awesome.  Other than the fact I have had some degree of a headache since Wednesday.  UGH!!! I have been back in the routine of going to the gym, but somehow haven’t pushed myself 3 days in any one week.  I am thinking this will be the week.  I was thereContinue reading “Making Time For Me in 6 Beautiful Ways”

Teenage Spotlight: 3/25

Hi! My name is Kathleen McSweeney and I am sixteen years of age. I find it can be difficult being a teenager in 2017. I think the biggest difficulty is social media. With all these social media platforms and usage of impulsivity, a teenager has to carefully choose friends and carefully use the Internet. IContinue reading “Teenage Spotlight: 3/25”

FBF: #40Notes40Days: Someone Who Walked with you Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death!

Transformation Tuesday: Week 12

So, it has been awhile since I have written on a Tuesday.  Things have been busy and I have been off my game!!! I have finally got my butt back into gear after moving and so today seemed like the right day to post.

Teenage Spotlight: 3/18

Being A Teen…..2k17! 2000, beginning of the new millennium, was when I was born. It’s kinda cool, you know, been born at the beginning of the 21st century and all. But I should say being a teenager is not an easy task! Puberty, raging hormones, unwanted feelings and loads of school work so do not workContinue reading “Teenage Spotlight: 3/18”

Thankful Thursday 3/16

I am going to focus on one thing for Thankful Thursday and that is my dinner last night. Last night my son James had a fundraiser for his class camping trip.  The fundraiser was at a restaurant and the restaurant was going to be donating a portion of the bill to the school. Well, theContinue reading “Thankful Thursday 3/16”

Teenage Spotlight: 3/11

As everyone walked by, various expressions gazed at my makeup that was carefully lathered onto my skin. My effortless curls bounced up and down as I strutted down the hallway. I did my best to put a stunning smile upon my face as my PINK water bottle dangled from the tip of my fingers, butContinue reading “Teenage Spotlight: 3/11”
