In case you didn’t catch it, the ‘DUH’ is my own emphasis. There’s been so much going on around the world and within America. I’ve had a variety of moments come to mind – some amazing, some not so amazing. If anything, it’s made me more grateful for having been taught how to love and… Read More Treat others the same way you want them to treat you, DUH. (Luke 6:31)
Today is the Little Sister’s birthday!!! She turns 18. Let me tell you more about her – Tara’s mom, Kathy, was the barista at my local coffee shop. I would pop in on Saturday’s and chat with her for a little bit and when my brother passed away, the coffee shop was my escape for… Read More “I want to grow up and write, but I don’t like people reading my work.”
*This was suppose to post on 8/9/2017. I had a few unexpected things happen and then a small kitchen fire. All is well(!) and I didn’t get to read over this and do a final edit. Ya know, life and stuff. Yesterday, I wrote about my dad passing and his addiction being alcohol, but I… Read More The Effect of Addiction
I imagined today to go a bit different: wake up, get a run/walk/jog thing in, shower/breakfast, write a Saturday Tid Bits, get my mail, sit at the dealership for an oil change & recall fixing, hit the ATM and get some groceries. Enjoy a Saturday evening writing some other posts and food prepping, blah blah… Read More Life Update
I didn’t get my Saturday Bits post up that I wanted. When push came to shove, posting that was low on the priority list. The same with my Make-up Monday post. Here’s why: One of the most powerful things I’ve learned in life is that you can’t change someone. You can only love them and… Read More Forgiveness & Life Update
This year was quite the year for me a lot of highs and a lot of lows. I’ve said this before, but I haven’t had such an emotional season of life since my parents separated (and that wasn’t because I was sad about it). My brother passed last November, then Christmas and New Years was… Read More 2015… the year of SO MUCH!
Christmas break… ahhh! I had a pretty good To Do List for the break. Cleaning, Organizing, etc. BUT it’s important to relax and have that time to not feel like to you need to do something or feel the time crunch to get something done. It’s been such a strange Christmas season with the weather… Read More Christmas Happenings!
A year ago my younger brother had passed away. It’s a 24 hour span of time that I recall so vividly. Every detail, despite the cloudiness from shock and all the emotions that came with it, I can recall every detail from that day. It doesn’t even feel like it has been a year. Mourning… Read More A Year Ago, Today
As I’ve mentioned before, I can be a bit of a planner. On Saturday I had a list of things to do, since Sunday was a full day away with commitments. Getting some posts written for this week and next were on that list. Just as I was leaving to attend an event Saturday afternoon… Read More
The weather has been great, except for a few storms, and it’s made for some great semi-vacation time. Semi-vacation: still going to work and have frequent time scheduled that it doesn’t seem like you’re really working. I got to celebrate one of my best friends/sister’s oldest graduating high school! Graduation time is my favorite time… Read More 2015 Summer Vacation
