This post is a part 2 or another perspective from my last post and even with both finally being semi-processed still feels incomplete. I honestly barely have the margin to go back and edit… I just know this is the best I could get it out, just for now, and yet there’s no doubt other… Continue reading Your passion is your WEAPON.
Swirling in my head from watching Grey’s last night is this line: “You’re her mom. You do what you think is best for her.” That is a loaded comment. And it guarantees nothing. Even if you make all the most perfect decisions and the best calls for your children, they are still going to do… Continue reading Get in the boat.
They say the best way to honor someone we have lost is to use that sense of loss to embrace the truth that life is precious and short and thereby live it to the fullest.

When I was a single momma, a few ladies asked me how I was able to work full time, go to school, and take care of 3 kids. Looking back – uhhh that’s a very good question… how on earth did I???

God’s response to those plans was, “Not so much, baby girl!” He, again, went above and beyond! 2011 was filled with the fun of Taco Tuesdays, roller skating, grad school, Cowboys games, romantic dates, an incredible BDayPalooza weekend, camps,… Continue reading 2012: A Date, A Dozen, & A Dare…
The other day I was posting one of Jacey’s ridiculous quotes and I ended up scrolling down her page on Circle of Mom’s just reading things she had said, some funny, some heart melting, and some just outrageous. It hit me as I read further and further that I hadn’t been posting her quotes as… Continue reading Fancy words, Missing Out, and a Horrible Life
Let me be clear. I. AM NOT. LOOKING. FOR A MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am on a path of my own God-inspired bliss. IF while on that path I should come across a man who is ALREADY on that same path then he just might be the one. And IF while on that path I should come… Continue reading Don’t mess with the bliss unless you come CORRECT.
One of the toughest things about parenting for me is getting my little ladies to do what I ask them to do without wearing my throat out repeating myself a zillion times until it gets done. Oh – and then coming up with creative rewards and consequences for the results that don’t involve either spanking… Continue reading A long hard day… melted in a moment.
Suck the love out of me. Drain me if that’s what you need. Because I have it to give… plenty of yellow sticky notes – stacks of every color…
