So, the little things are what truly matter in the end-a poem for DJ

Listening to endless droning about my crazy job Taking the car to get repairs Calling to make sure I am in the Uber and safe Drying tears over feelings hurt once again An impromptu lunch to celebrate a small success Trying new things like apple picking to celebrate my traditions Buying me more new reads…

Life is full of ups and downs, but boy do I feel blessed!!

So, I met some jerks. I lost an at home job. I started commuting 2.5 hours a day to a unfulfilling work situation. BUT... I learned a lot I have a job AND... I found the love of my life! No more creepy Match guys who are only looking for sex. No more roller coaster…

So, what is grace really? And not the grace you may be thinking of…

So, I am not talking about grace in the way that Madonna talks about it: "She's got style, she's got grace, Rita Hayworth gave good face..." (Vogue) I am talking about the Grace of God. Have you ever seen books about Grace in a Christian reference of the word? I mean, I think that I…

So, joys and concerns before the day closes…

My joys would be: We both woke up today. Actually my mom and cat did too, so yay!! I got up and went to work today with the kiddos even though I coughed all night. I am feeling better. We went to a bakery supply store and bought some cool items to bake all of…

So, does it feel like everyone is moving forward in their lives while you aren’t evolving one bit??

For me it does, a lot lately. With all of this down-time this month, I have had a lot of time to think. And sometimes, too much thinking time is not a good thing. At least not for me! I had a conversation with  my daughter today and she was saying how she was tired…

So, I forgot how much I loved rainstorms until now…

So, I read a chapter of Harry Potter to my daughter along with a Psalm and she went to bed after 11 which is way too late. But it was perfect timing. I fixed myself and kale stir-fry snack with almonds, and as soon as I sat down to watch Gilmore Girls, the thunderstorm started.…
