what’s saving my life right now?

what's saving

That’s a real strong title, right? Yep, I have to confess that it did not come from me but from one of my favorite bloggers, Anne of Modern Mrs. Darcy. Love her blog and when I read one of her posts last week entitled, What’s saving your life right now? I was completely intrigued. She wrote about the difficulty that comes with winter. Short days, cold, not as much sun, etc. can be trying a person. I have to completely agree because I’m a warm weather and blue sunny skies kind of girl. She ... Continue Reading...

Refocusing in January

refocusing

January. You enter bringing hopes of newness and something fresh. New goals, fresh start, a refocus. Whatever it is you want to call it, it happens. And then life happens and it’s so easy to forget or get distracted or even give up on what seemed important and urgent January 1. I get it because I can say that is me. That is my life. And yet. Yet, I want to continue to pursue those things that were on my heart as January 2017 opened. Those ideas of others and refocus. I’m pursuing those. Yes, I’m ... Continue Reading...

“B’s” for the New Year

sharing my heart

Don't you just love the start of a New Year? Something about a new and fresh is exciting to me. It helps that so many other bloggers are of the same mindset.

Grace & Gratitude #5

Grace & Gratitude #5

Happy Memorial Day and welcome to Grace and Gratitude #5. In this series, I try to recap how I saw grace and gratitude intersect in my life from the previous week. I also link up with my friend Simply Shaunacey for Monday Moments of Gratitude each Monday. Since I went into really deep waters last week, I'm keeping it short and hopefully sweet today. 1. Grace intersected my life with a teacher-friend from the past last week. I read a FB post of hers and decided I should reach out to her. I ... Continue Reading...

Grace + Gratitude 3

Grace & Gratitude-3

I'm thankful to my friend Shaunacey {Simply Shaunacey} for starting her series, Monday Moments of Gratitude. It is reminding me to stop and think about what is going in my life and heart. Am I grateful or am I living with a sense of entitlement? Sometimes I really don't like the answer to that question but it's so good for me to travel there because that is what can bring change in my life. So grace and gratitude...how did they intersect in my life last week? Reality Alert: I'm about to get ... Continue Reading...
