Thankful Day 6

Well, there are only 2 places that come to mind when I think of a place I’m thankful for!!! My house.  My wonderful, beautiful, quad-level in the city that I grew up in.  In a wonderful neighborhood, with a diverse community, amazing schools and a safe place for my children to run around outside. PaulContinue reading “Thankful Day 6”

Thankful Day 4&5

I thought and thought and thought about what the taste or food I am thankful for is.  It was extremely hard to come up with just 1.  Day 4.  I am thankful for Homemade Chicken and Dumplings.  This is not my favorite food by any means.  Though while I was making it for my familyContinue reading “Thankful Day 4&5”

Thankful Day 3

A friend of mine shared this yesterday on Facebook.  I was moved by it, so I decided to copy it and play along myself.  Since I have already written a post for day 1 and day 2, I will just answer those quickly. 1. A memory I am thankful for…remembering 4 of my great grandparentsContinue reading “Thankful Day 3”

Month of Thanks Day 2

Today I’m going to share my thankfulness for essential oils. Yes, yes… in this family we use essential oils all day long. As a natural room deodorizer, in lieu of fabric sheets, drops to flavor our water and for relieve when our body is giving us problems. Last Friday Noah was in the hospital withContinue reading “Month of Thanks Day 2”

I Choose You #thisis38

Last night when my husband got home from work we had some deep conversation. I really love and appreciate the fact that we can do this. Get below the surface, say what is on our minds and value each other’s opinions.  This is part of a 3 day conversation that I started talking about yesterdayContinue reading “I Choose You #thisis38”

Me Too #thisis38

My husband was made aware of something over the weekend that lead us to some really deep and at times dark conversation. Men….you guys just don’t get it!  I mean honestly, for the most part, you just don’t get it. I am lucky enough to have a voice, a voice that I will use toContinue reading “Me Too #thisis38”

Finally Happy #thisis38

For years I worked and worked. For years I cried on the inside mostly, on the outside some. I thought if I just did more of X added some of Z and less of Y, that I would be better in no time. I spent years of therapy, years of journaling (blogging), reading self careContinue reading “Finally Happy #thisis38”

Long Time #thisis38

I realized yesterday that I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not because I have nothing to say, it’s because life is going to swimmingly that I just haven’t. Since the kids got back to school, I’ve been back to work. Professional grocery shopping that it #shiptlife. I’m earning a living for my family while beingContinue reading “Long Time #thisis38”

Dust #Thisis38

In my devotional a few days ago this statement really hit me. “I felt like I had been ground to dust, and those words started to put me back together.” Referring to a friend who had told Shauna it was OK to feel however she wanted about a situation, but she didn’t have to beContinue reading “Dust #Thisis38”

Back To School #Thisis38

Today is the first day of school for our youngest 3 children.  Which means summer has come to an end and was wrapped up in a pretty little bow yesterday. My dream, my summer with the kids was everything that I ever could have hoped for!  I have high hopes that the pieces of workContinue reading “Back To School #Thisis38”
