You know the old saying right? About never saying never. (if you're not familiar - that's about it... "Never say never")
And there are some things that is very true about. In parenting for example. NEVER day "I will never let my kids..." or "As a mother I will never..." Because sure as the sun rises - you'll find yourself doing it at some point!
However, there are a few things I feel pretty confident saying "Never" about. For example:…

This week has flown by! I can't believe it's already Friday! I am looking forward to a weekend filled with painting in the master bedroom. And hopefully being ready very soon to start putting in the new flooring. (yah!)
But today, simply because it's Friday...

I had a very brief moment where I considered skipping this week's Spirit of Gratitude post and instead doing something regarding the 13th anniversary of the terrible day that forever branded this date into our hearts and minds. However, I quickly decided that as we as a nation pause to remember that terrifyingly heartbreaking day it is also the perfect time to also reflect on all we have and how blessed we are. …

I try to keep my blog upbeat. I try to focus on all the things I have to be grateful for in my life. I try to be positive. I don't want to drag everyone down by being one of those blogs that's a big ol' whine-fest of things that bother me. Full of negativity.
But can I be really, really real with y'all for a minute? Cause, truth is - right now I am struggling a little…

After 40-something years of life - and being with the Man of the House for half of that - it should be pretty obvious that I have a LOT of memories. Some I like to think about more than others. Sure, there are the obvious good memories: the day we got married, the day each of our kids was born, the birth of our first grandchild.. I could easily fill a "Three Things" post with those alone. But beside those joyous occasions - there are others that I especially enjoy looking back on…Continue

Last night I choked on a piece of apple in my salad...
It wasn't as bad as it could have been. I was able to breath the whole time. But that little chunk of honeycrisp was wedged right between my tonsils for a good minute or two and didn't want to move. Although finally... finally... I managed to cough and clear and swallow it down. It's all good.…

I've been doing some deep thinking recently. And some not-so-deep thinking also. As I find myself buried inside my head I often think "I should write/blog about this"
Then the moment passes.
And it's gone. The thoughts I was…

In a world constantly demanding our time, our attention, our busyness - it is a comfort to hear the words of Jesus upon the cross. "It is finished" There is nothing we have to do to earn love. To earn salvation. To earn grace and mercy. It is done.…Continue

I'm known to be a bit of a reader. (I'm also known to understate things a tiny bit from time to time)
Reading has been a HUGE part of my life ever since I was a kid. I love to lose myself in a good book. I would spend most of my days reading - all day, every day if that were actually possible. (wait... is there a job for that? If anyone has an opening with a job description like that - let me know! 'Cause I would totally rock that!)
I always say I…

Then, suddenly, he's picking up the schedule for his junior year of high school. She's a grown woman with a child of her own. And you realize how quickly the years went by and how quickly the next few years will be gone.
You find yourself longing for one more...
One more time feeling the warmth of a small body snuggle in your lap.
One more tiny hand holding yours.
One more first day of school.
One more hot, weary day of watching little league…

The school year begins, I find myself looking back on my (ahem..) more youthful years when I had younger kids. As I reflect on the things I know I've gotten right, the things I could have done better, and the times I fell flat on my face as a mother - I find myself thinking about how I so often felt as if the whole world (especially other mothers) were looking at me and scoring me as a mom. And how,even though my kids are grown and mostly grown, and one even has a little one of her…Continue

It's back to school time! Our schools started back to class today. There's just something about this time of year. I've always enjoyed it, even back when I was the one going back to school. Here's a few reasons why:…
