Cheering Squad

My daughter’s run today was different than all the others. She placed better than ever before and she had her fastest time to date. It was such a great moment to watch the outcome of all of her hard work. But I noticed something else different. There were lots of loud cheers coming from the […]

The Panic Button

I have been very blessed to be able to still have the usage of a vehicle as my car faces the dreaded inspection. I am so grateful. I am also at times confused. I’ll admit it. As I was trying to gather all of my things to head home after a long day, I hit […]

Crinkling Plastic

As I turned around to head out the door and walk my sister out, I told the dogs to stay. Max and Marci both stopped and stood at attention. They immediately obeyed my words and I continued onward to see my sister out. But as I was opening the door and saying goodbye, I could […]

One Day

Every day I am in pain but some days are worse than others. Today was a really high pain day because there was an incident that occurred when I was walking the dogs. A loose dog came after Max and Marci. My daughter held Marci and continued onward but this loose dog kept after Max […]

She read a […]

Feet Planted

For each person, when we stand with our feet firmly planted on the ground, there is only so much strength and ability to keep us standing. For me, because of health issues, […]

You Are Blessed

Circumstances change. Situations are not always the same. There are moments in life when you may be “on top of the world.” There are also moments when you are at your lowest point. But in any circumstance, in any situation, at any point in life, you can be content. It does not matter where you […]

Good Morning

Today was an awesome day! It was a good morning! We started worship with “Hold Us Together,” singing the words, “This is the first day of the rest of your life.” I looked onward and considered that today’s the first day of something special for three young girls, one who was confirming her baptism, and […]
