Fun Friday Favorites: Speaking engagements, books, and other great things!

Hello dear friends! It’s been a CrAzY week with us running every which way but loose. Or maybe that was just a movie back in the late ’70s. Whatever. That is how I felt. Running here and there and everywhere. I don’t foresee it getting better until the end of April. Somebody hold me. I’ll Continue Reading

Perfectionism will crush any good thing

Well. Isn’t that a lovely title? I know. Wisdom oozes from my veins.  Hahaha First off, let me begin by saying that at the rate I’m blogging, I’ll have about 12 blog posts for the year of 2016. That, my friends, is what you call sad. I’ll be honest. I’ve been slightly busy. As in Continue Reading

Some days it is hard to adult, but we must have faith

Fergie, you are all wrong. Big girls do cry. Especially when they have to grow up and clean their closet. (That reference would be to one of my favorite songs Fergie sang back in the summer of 2007. You are welcome for useless musical trivia.) Yesterday, I met my friend Katie for Bible study in Continue Reading

It’s been a long time…

Well, it’s been awhile. QUITE awhile since I’ve been on here. My last blog post was about a month ago. I think know this is the longest I’ve ever gone without being on here. And I’ve missed it.

Weekend Recap: Praying for miracles. Big or small.

Well, this weekend was rather interesting.  My Saturday did not go as I had planned.  Not that I had grand plans of how to spend the afternoon, but going to the Emergency Room was NOT even on my radar.  But that’s where I ended up. Seriously.  Am I the only one who does stupid little Continue Reading

Weekend Recap: Deep thoughts (and not by Jack Handy)

Well.  I could go into a whole therapy session right about now, but I’ll spare you.  Maybe.  Long story short, last week was just one of those weeks.  It was difficult, frustrating, heart tugging…all of that fun stuff. When you set out to become a writer and a blogger the skies do not part and Continue Reading

Weekend Recap and today…we’ve got one under the weather

Well, I  meant to write about the weekend, but yesterday I was working on my book and that takes A LOT of brain power.  Quite honestly, it zaps my creativity completely.  And when I’m done spending hours at Coffeesmiths, the rest of life beckons me back to reality.  Meaning LAUNDRY and DISHES and cooking supper Continue Reading

The ugly cry

Why yes, last night, I was all about doing the ugly cry.  A cry with sniffles, tears, a crumpled up face that looked nothing short of hideous and Kenny Loggins “Meet Me Half Way” playing in the background. Yesterday was a tough day for me.  After I picked the boys up from school, we ran an errand before Continue Reading
