ending 2017 a little bruised and a whole lot worse for the wear

First thing in the morning this past Sunday, New Years Eve 2017, the shower nozzle fell from the sky and hit me in the face.  Good morning to me on that Lord's day.  No broken bones, but it was touch and go there for a minute checking my nose for a status…

I heard about praise

A couple of things that just popped into my head..... don't even ask why...

First, that if I accidentally hit the camera button on this laptop as I sit here and type in my bed on this sleepy Saturday night, the sight of me could scare the pants off even th…

It seems I look a lot like Hillary Clinton..... trying to decide which voices matter

Y'all, this really happened. 

I was at the grocery store last night, soup aisle to be exact, and I scared a man half to death.  Like he saw a ghost, or a scary monster, which made me feel really self conscious because he was looking straight at me.  First …

desperate times call for desperate measures.... says me every dang day.

Happy Anniversary, Fireman Dave, now can you go pick up three picnic tables I just found outside at a restaurant and take them to the school?  Then take me to lunch to celebrate our love?

Watch me, Mama....  Kid 3 said to me as he played ping pong at the YMCA last night.  We were waiting for big brother to finish karate class.  I had already been up there for hours earlier that day at work, and now back for the evening  -  But this time I foun…

If I may quote George Strait on this one.... I saw God today.

Sometimes I write because I have an actual story to tell.  Sometimes I write because there are so many thoughts racing through my head that I can't slow them down till I type it out.  And sometimes writing to me is rest.  A quiet place that is all mine, b…

For I know the plans I have for you.

For I know the plans I have for you.... plans for a future. 

Both the 6th grader and the 4th grader these days don't see the need for school.  I hear it all the time.... why do they have to go?   Because apparently they learn the same things every day - ev…

I don't know. Praying God's heart for my children. Post 4

Do those big prayers work?  I don't know.... 

Honestly, most of my prayers recently have been about Christopher - the middle kid, as he has dealt with quite the adjustment to middle school this year.  It's 6 weeks in and he still has his mama's…
