Balloon Rescue

| Grateful Heart, Mommyhood, Personal, Womanhood

Grocery store trips. Yesterday morning confirmed that I officially despise them. Ugh. Not because I mind actually going to the grocery store. Nope, that’s not it. Really, it is nice to get out of the house. Pick out the needed food for some new recipes. And feel like I can check one thing off my weekly […] Read more…

The Gift of Response

| Personal, Womanhood

We are a.l.l. busy. Goodness knows this. It truly has become a worldwide mantra. Our society today is s.o. v.e.r.y. different from the world in which I grew up. Where families ate together every night. Children played outside until dusk (or longer, in most cases). Photos were developed “in a few days” through actual tangible film. Kids […] Read more…

Chain Reaction

| Faith, Mommyhood

Oh, sweet mamas. We’ve all been there. Sweat pouring down our brow. Praying our back doesn’t suddenly give out. Lassoing one with our legs, while simultaneously trying to pry another’s mouth open for at least 30 seconds of “quality” tooth-brushing. Dropping empty threats, left and right. To at last get everyone into bed. Again. And again. And once more. Eventually, […] Read more…

Enough.

| Faith, Family, Mommyhood, Womanhood

Do you ever feel that sting? As in, “I-am-not-exactly-sure-what-I-really-accomplished-today” sting? You know the one…you show up (late) to your daughter’s Halloween school party with store-bought football cupcakes (because that’s the only remotely fall-related item left in the bakery), which, of course, were placed next to the Pinterest-award-winning pumpkin sprinkle cookie treats… … only to be asked, “Why didn’t […] Read more…

“Worry about nothing…”

| Faith, Personal

“Worry about nothing.” “Pray about everything.” One of my a.b.s.o.l.u.t.e. favorite scriptures. Easiest to recite over-and-over again in my mind. My go-to words of choice in the midst of any troubling thoughts. Experiences. Situations. Still, in being so perfect and simple, it continuously remains the m.o.s.t. difficult for me to live out. How do you exactly, “worry about […] Read more…

Breathe

| Faith, Family, Personal, Womanhood

Life. One p.a.s.s.i.o.n.a.t.e. rollercoaster ride. Full of twists and turns. Ups and downs. Smooth-sailing and unexpected shifts. Fascinating, yet incredibly frightening, all wrapped into one whirlwind of a journey. Unpredictable. Which is at the core of the enjoyment of it all, right?! And in the thick of preparations for am upcoming move…remodeling, packing, working soccer practices, games, […] Read more…

The Question I Will Never Ask

| Mommyhood, Personal, Womanhood

There really are no words to describe the feelings of uneasiness when the questions started pouring in. The inquiries. Curiosities. To which I honestly did not know the answers. Many times trying to hold back the tears. With every ounce of my energy. Forcing the most believable smile I could present. More often than not, […] Read more…

As soon as things settle down, […] Read more…

Surrender

| Grateful Heart, Personal

Surrender. This word. It has been finding its way more and more to the front pages of my life’s story. Popping up in recent social media feeds. Shining through those so-totally-needed and always refreshing scripture words. Catching my eye mid-page in the midst of some very rare personal reading time. Surrender. Yield. Relinquish. Concede. In Christianity, […] Read more…

Sidelined

| Mommyhood, Personal

Oh, sweet mamas. You know the saying, “Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever”… Sigh. These words are so t.o.t.a.l.l.y. hitting home right now. To my core. In one of my previous posts, I had written about embracing this current season of life. And while we are still holding steady […] Read more…
