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 areContinue reading “Thinking #Thisis38”

Thankful Days 15-19

Day 15…A mystery I am thankful for.  God, that is my answer.  Now some of you may say that my faith in God must not be strong if I think it is a mystery, but I don’t believe that is true.  We know this life, these stories from the church and from the bible, butContinue reading “Thankful Days 15-19”

Thankful Day 11&12

  11. A gift from God that I am thankful for…my divorce!  Yes, you read that right.  I know that God had a hand in the way that my break up with my ex played out.  At the time of course, I asked God why it was happening to me??  But now, I know itContinue reading “Thankful Day 11&12”

Month of Thanks Day 1

I am thankful for the kind of family we are!!! What kind of family is that?  Well…it is the kind of family that walks around with people we have never met on Halloween like we’ve known each other for years! I don’t know if this happens to everyone and maybe it does.  I’d have toContinue reading “Month of Thanks Day 1”

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”

How can it be 8 years?

8 years ago yesterday I finished walking in my 1 and only Breast Cancer 3 day walk.  3 days of hanging with a couple of old friends and meeting new friends.  Giving my time, energy and money to support a cause that was much bigger than me. 8 years ago today, shit hit the fan. Continue reading “How can it be 8 years?”

Ten Minutes: My Grey Hairs

Happy International Women’s Day!! I am 37 years old.  I have just over 5 months before I turn 38. I have some grey hair, I couldn’t even begin to estimate how much of my hair (I have a lot) has already turned grey, I would venture to guess somewhere about 25%. There aren’t many peopleContinue reading “Ten Minutes: My Grey Hairs”

Ten Minutes: Dating and Marriage

My Devotion today was about dating and marriage!  Man oh man, was I happy to read this today. Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.  Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go, he’s the one who will keep you on track. Continue reading “Ten Minutes: Dating and Marriage”

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 amContinue reading “Yes, we met online”

FBF: Hello from the Outside

I Love this post.  I still Love this song too.  I don’t care what you say, it isn’t whiny and it isn’t pining after a lover.  It is self-reflection at its finest.  When I hear the words they strike me right to my core.  I still cry sometimes.  The tears are all happy.  A songContinue reading “FBF: Hello from the Outside”
