Patience is a virtue…one I seem to lack

  Every time I read it, the voice behind it is the lady from Steel Magnolias wearing the tight girdle that harps at Dolly Parton for eating cake. “Calories, Calories!” “Patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue.”  CRINGE!!   I have always been fast-paced.  I’m constantly going, going, going and never stopping.  I’m not a…

Livin’ that Oily Life

First, I want to start off by saying I’m not one of those people who says essential oils cured me or fixed all my problems.  No, they actually haven’t.  But, they have helped me and my family tremendously and because of that I want to write some blogs about what has and HAS NOT worked…

Amateurs built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.

I saw this quote this morning on Instagram and it struck a chord with me.  What a powerful and true statement.  I can’t tell you how many times in my past, I had given up on dreams, goals, and new opportunities because I was scared. Fearful of failure and thinking I wasn’t good enough. Thinking…

How meticulous are you about your relationship with Christ?

Today, my little toot and I are putting up the Christmas tree.  Some people may think it’s a bit early but watching the excitement on her face was worth every second.  My husband put it together for us then headed outside to do some much-needed yard work.  So I sat, for what seemed like forever…

A thief in the night

During my wait to get pregnant again and to have another precious baby, my faith in God has gotten stronger with each day, with each failed test, and with each month that starts over. I know that God has a plan for me.  I know that my wait is teaching me something.  I’m doing my…

The Wait

Today is the day.  The day I get to take a pregnancy test.  You go to bed the night before, excited, hopeful. But before I even get out of bed, I know.  I’m hurting. Cramping.  I get up to go the bathroom and it’s confirmed.  We’re starting over.  Another month.  Another 30 days.  More stressful…

Take the time.

Another Monday rolls in with the blink of an eye. Why is it that when you’re little time just creeps on by like a snail getting nowhere? Yet, as adults, it seems like we can’t catch up. There is not enough time to do everything that needs to be done. I can’t even believe November…

Benny to the rescue

Mom life. So I’m having by mother, brother, his wife and their two kids over for dinner. The hubby works nights so it’s just me trying to get everything ready for them all while trying to entertain my two year old. “Mommy, mere. Mommy sit. Mommy whats that? Mommy what you doing?” Needless to say…

Wait For the Rainbow

As I was driving to work this morning, the sky was full of beautiful pinks and purples. The sun was just peaking over the trees and shining brightly over the fall colored trees. It was gorgeous. So gorgeous I almost ran off the road trying to take pictures! Then I get to work, walked in,…
