Don’t Get Lost In The Keeping

"How many shoes can one person pick up in a day?" This is a thought that frequently breezes through my mind as I am bending over to pick up the gazillionth (should totally be a real number) flip-flop off of the living room floor. I mean seriously, why can't the little critters just put their … Continue reading Don’t Get Lost In The Keeping

Can’t Eat Soup With A Fork

My house is always full of funny dialogue and unexpected quips. One particular afternoon at lunchtime I heard my 4 year old ask for a fork to eat her soup with. I giggled a little as I let her know that it would be less than efficient to use a fork to eat her soup. … Continue reading Can’t Eat Soup With A Fork

To Know is to Hold

Typically i post something a little lengthy, but today I just want to leave you with a little nugget. Most of us refuse to acknowledge our struggle to acknowledge responsibility. But let's be honest with ourselves for a minute. We obtain extensive amounts of knowledge daily, from devotions, news, people, etc. But at most we … Continue reading To Know is to Hold

Ask the Teacher

You know, as we age and see the greys popping up like jiffy on the sides of our hair lines. It seems like asking for help might as well be torture. If you're anything like me, in your head you've convinced yourself that you have eight arms and a few extra hours in your day … Continue reading Ask the Teacher

So, if you feel like you are the only one having to remind yourself … Continue reading Choices Challenge #6: Making the Choice to LOOK

Choices Challenge #5: Making the Choice to Give MORE GRACE

Forgetful, selective memory or absent minded, whatever we want to label it. It seems to show up when we need to extend grace or mercy to someone. I'm not sure if we get amnesia or blank out for a bit, but for some reason, we forget how much grace we've been shown and how much … Continue reading Choices Challenge #5: Making the Choice to Give MORE GRACE

Choices Challenge #4: Making the Choice to BE

Walking around my humble abode and assessing my work load for today was a bit daunting this morning. I literally said, "I feel like the walls are closing in on me." as I stood in my life stricken closet. I stood there wondering how in the world things can be so messy when all I … Continue reading Choices Challenge #4: Making the Choice to BE

Yield to the Potter

When I was a little girl, I used to love watching PBS. There was one show on there with a lady doing pottery that I loved. I also loved Bob Ross' show as well but we'll save that for another post. This pottery lady sparked an interest in me for this style of art. I … Continue reading Yield to the Potter

Stop Thinking Like A Mom

It took me some time to think on what I thought this first post should look like. I thought about all these different topics (over thinking them all) and it took a major event to bring me to what's coming up in the next few paragraphs. Major events tend to do things like rock your … Continue reading Stop Thinking Like A Mom
