Wonderment

After church today, a young lady and I were conversing, while the kids were in the car, blasting the A/C, waiting for me, and she asked “I don’t know how you do it” And as I formed my mouth to give an explanation…I couldn’t. I, honestly, don’t know how I do it either. Seriously. Day…

Trust the Process

I’ve been in situations where I had the earthly right not to forgive someone. I had every right to stay angry with someone. I had every right to treat someone like they treated me. I had every right. How do you forgive though? This is a question that I asked myself plenty of times in…

Advancing

So last week, I caved and decided to buy my son a cell phone. Yes I’m probably the one parent who stalled until the very last second to bring my child into the technological world. (LOL). Honestly, I just wasn’t ready to let him go in that sense. I’ll explain. Obviously, I know what it’s like…

Tending

Has your life been a series of making something out of nothing? That phrase can be viewed from two different angles: turning something insignificant into something major or turning something negative into something positive. You see, more often than not we use that phrase for the former angle. We as humans have a tendency to make a big deal…

One of the best Disney movies of all time is The Lion King. It’s definitely in my top 5 favorite movies ever. But I’m not here to give you my top 100 favorite movies of all time, although that could be a post in it’s own right. Maybe in the future :). It’s fitting that last night The…

Top Notch

Every so often, we need a reminder of how amazing we are either as parents, friends, spouses or just as a person. Sometimes we can fall into the trap of letting people or situations trick us into thinking that we are less than what we truly are. How come I wasn’t enough? Why did it…

Humility.

As an adult, sometimes it’s hard for us to humble ourselves in situations and admit that we’re wrong. And even when we do admit our faults to ourselves, it’s even harder to verbally express them, especially if another party was involved. We have a tough time evaluating ourselves especially when the finger is being pointed at us….

Left. Right.

Taking a step back in the middle of your chaos is not only healthy, but necessary. How many times have we had chaotic situations, good or bad, but in the midst of it had to remove ourselves for sanity sustaining purposes? *raises hand* It’s absolutely necessary. Please don’t feel guilty about it. I don’t know how many…

Les Enfants

Being a single mom, at times I get caught up in the everyday hustle and bustle. During some of those moments, I regretfully admit, that I do at times forget that my children deal with their own anxieties and stress. As well as, their own everyday hustle and bustle. Granted their stresses aren’t the same as their parents and/or guardians,…

Clear The Crap

Keeping emotions suppressed until they can no longer stay down can eventually burst open like a shaken soda. And unfortunately, sometimes you don’t know how much emotion you’ve kept bottled up until you get triggered. I had a conversation with my mom today in regards to some disappointing news I received and in continuing with the conversation,…
