When you lose someone you love, Thanksgiving Day feels burdensome and painful. When a brain tumor took away our precious Katie's life I dreaded that holiday. For seven years we served no rutabagas because they were Katie's favorite vegetable. The thought of their seasonal aroma wafting through our home without her in it was too much to bear.
I don't share this part of me today to make other moms sad. I share it because you are my extended family and I am yours. We are all fellow… Continue

Teach me what I do not see, if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more, Job 34:32
truly was ignorant before...oblivious to what the Bible was designed
for. To Instruct, Enlighten and Rebuke...the scriptures clarify and
refute...those who deny the truth. For we often take it hard...to see
ourselves as we really are.
So Lord, if I've messed up...open my eyes up...so I may see all… Continue

Ok - how bored is America?
I just saw that Bristol Palin and her partner are receiving DEATH THREATS on Dancing With the Stars?
Really? Are you kidding me?
Look - I realize that there is a ton of controversy over this woman making the finals of this show. I understand that. I, personally, think that she is as deserving as anyone to be there. I have enjoyed watching her come from a closed up, scared to death, young single mother with no idea how to dance, to a… Continue

Growing up I spent nearly every birthday the same way- Celebrating Thanksgiving. We would always go to my grandparents house & have… Continue

There was a time when I felt like my life was turned upside down. I had so many obstacles coming in my direction at one time: divorce, single parent to a toddler, increased bills and less money, bankrupt business, loss of a close friendship... Wow, that takes energy just thinking about it and when all of this came crashing at me at once, I completely lost balance and damn near my sanity.
These life experiences have taught me that we all have to go through obstacles in life, but the effects… Continue

Divorcing and single parents that are dealing with trials during this holiday season, ponder this...
Wake up every morning and know for a fact that it was going to be a beautiful day. Happiness is a choice and when it is chosen, it is infectious to all of those around you. It is helpful to write yourself a few affirmations and sit it next to the bed so that it is the first thing you see when you wake up. Below, I have listed a few of my personal affirmations:

It's so easy to get caught up on the materialistic aspect that seems to come hand-in-hand with the upcoming holiday season. Seriously? Thanksgiving?

I've thought about that a lot over the weekend, not having anymore kids.
Being pregnant, once you get over the morning sickness and when your ankles aren't swollen, is a beautiful thing. Its a new beginning, it's a time of great love and excitement, shopping sprees and hubby wanting to cook you anything you crave. It's a time to be pampered (which I was) and experience an extra bit of love (which I did get) and be able to push the everyday heavy lifting and hard labor of cleaning and… Continue
