I got an email this afternoon from a lady I know. She said she didn’t really need anything but asked if I could meet with her tomorrow or Tuesday “because she needs some positivity in her life”. Wow. I’m positivity? I’m so glad. Of course I’ll meet with her, because that’s my goal. My goalContinue reading “Be light.”

I am often inspired by posts made by my friends, and this one… what a thought! I think many of us are in this mode right now. We’ve been in survival mode. Keeping things running the best can, constantly trying to stay on top of tasks, always playing catch up, working to get enough rest,Continue reading “Survival Mode”
Tell me I’m not the only one who gets up and makes up the bed, then stands there and does a quick calculation of the time that must pass until you get to get back in it again. And yeah, I’m one of those “million pillows on the bed” chicks.
Overwhelm. Mighty. Juice.
This past week was overwhelming, to say the least, but we pushed through. God IS mighty, and after I stopped feeling all sad and ridiculous, remembered that He is indeed mightier than my “overwhelm”, and turned up the Prayer/Warrior/Praise Juice…it all came together. It sure takes strength to praise Him in the hard times, butContinue reading “Overwhelm. Mighty. Juice.”
I’m guilty. I don’t always share my problems, because I don’t want to be a burden to anyone. I don’t want them to think I’ve lost it or that I’m making excuses. Guilty! I keep things to myself, because “they’ll blow over” or “I’ll just deal with it, it’s fine.” Guilteeeee! I put on make-upContinue reading “Guilty.”
Two thoughts this morning: Life happens faster than I can sometimes keep up. God is a wildfire. Evidenced by my bedroom piled with clothes on the infamous chair, the laundry piles on the floor, and the laundry overflowing from baskets in the wash room, life moves faster than I can move sometimes. I am behind.Continue reading “Wildfire”
If my friend told me…
If my friend told me she was lonely, I would offer to come see her, meet for lunch, or suggest opportunities to get out of the house and be among people. I might just listen. She might not want to be fixed. If my friend told me her child was acting out, and she didn’tContinue reading “If my friend told me…”
Playing Catch Up
Y’all, it’s been a minute. It’s hard to maintain a blog when you’ve had the Covid, the flu, and the Covid pneumonia. Yeah, I decided to do that all at the same time about two weeks ago. It’s hard when you’ve been working like mad. Right now, I’m in full show mode at the danceContinue reading “Playing Catch Up”
I want you to be happy. Really.
Y’all notice the “support other women” movement happening over the last few years? It’s louder than ever. You can barely scroll any social media outlet twice without seeing posts, verses, and memes about women encouraging women. I don’t know where the sentiment comes from and, seemingly suddenly, why it’s a thing, but I don’t care.Continue reading “I want you to be happy. Really.”
Therapy: Everybody needs it.
About a year ago, I saw an ad on Facebook for something called BetterHelp. I stopped scrolling, because some girl was talking, and all the comments were about how soothing and beautiful her voice was. This, I had to hear. I didn’t have my sound up, so I clicked and replayed it. Meh…her voice wasContinue reading “Therapy: Everybody needs it.”
