Lofty goals for a wanna be superstar

I was thankful recently to spend time with a new friend.  One who makes everyone feel important and interesting and hand made by a God that filled them up with goodness.  

And she is able to do that because she is filled with a goodness of her own that co…

And so a piece of my past that I hadn't thought of in ages walked straight out of 1980 something and right into my kitchen

Sam had a writing prompt at school..... If he were chosen to travel on a space ship to another planet, what three things would he bring?  And he said....

1.  Suicide pills in case he gets captured by  martians
2. A weapon to defend against those same martian…

Obviously a little blog disclaimer is necessary. Just found that out....

So I've had to ask myself some things. Things regarding the why of the blog. Do I want to worry if you like me or not? No I do not.

There are times that I feel overwhelmed when I just shouldn't feel overwhelmed.   And times I feel like I've taken on more than I should have.  And when I feel like I'm just doing stuff all wrong.

My heart of darkness... and in times of chaos, a violent streak

Yesterday I sat on the school playground while kid 3 played. And I kept myself busy texting a friend on the lifelong dilemma of women everywhere... the hypothetical topic of marrying a man that I don't love - but who is proclaiming his love for me - on hi…
