Hello Sweet Readers! Oh, how I hope that your Thanksgiving was a grand time of food, family, friends mixed up with a whole lot of memories. I'm trusting you have much to be thankful for and this holiday just added more to that life category. I was a little under the weather last week and missed a couple of days of work. I got a couple of meds and was feeling more chipper by Thanksgiving Day. We did our volunteer gig and decided that next year we need to up our game on that day by staying ... Continue Reading...

Sometimes I Don’t See Clearly

Yay, for Thanksgiving Week! When I was teaching this was a favorite week because we were off of school. It was such a great time to be with loved ones around the table eating turkey with all the trimmings and then get it gear for Christmas. One of the perks I definitely miss from the world of education. But regardless, yay that this week has arrived and it's a short one on the work calendar. I hope this post finds you gearing up to embrace all of the holiday with its moments of overeating ... Continue Reading...

Travel with me to the day I attended an ALIGN workshop to help me ... Continue Reading...

Is it a Happy Halloween?

Happy(1)

Tomorrow is the day. One of those days that children wait for anxiously to come to fruition. By now, they have their costume picked out and are ready to head out of the door to get as much candy as possible. At least that is how I remember it from my childhood. But I cannot say the same thing for my daughter. You see for years I was on a Halloween boycott of sorts. It's a little long and complicated so I'll spare the details of how my religious ideas crossed that day off the calendar for ... Continue Reading...

A Defining Narrative

Life

Hello, Sweet Readers! I hope this post finds you on Monday gearing up for another week... Words. I love words. Back in the day of hard back dictionaries, I would sit and turn the pages and just read words. Words have meanings and meanings are not necessarily neutral. How words are used can build up or tear down. They can grow great things in a person or not. Words create a narrative and words help to define you and me. Have you thought about the narrative that generally runs through your ... Continue Reading...

One of the desires of my heart is to be intentional with my blog. I have always wanted to be consistent and write about how life and faith intersect.

I’m so glad you’re here! It’s humbling to me that people stop and read or subscribe to my little blog. I don’t take that lightly. I am so grateful for each ... Continue Reading...
