A new year, 2010. Each year since Emma's earthly body left us I feel a sense of growth and disbelief.
Growth in my faith, relationship with the Lord and amazement how far the Lord has carried me through this journey. He is forever faithful and I know fully well pain is a blessing. Yet, I still feel a sense of unbelief at how quickly the years pass. In May, this year will mark the fifth year since Emma's death. Five years?? That is the length of time it takes to have a… Continue

On Mother’s Day, Owen ran a fever of 101.8 so I kept him out of
school on Monday. He recovered quickly, only to learn the age-old,
hard-knock lesson discovered by countless generations of six-year-old
boys before him: Poison ivy is friend to no grade schooler
Endlessly red, puffy and itchy, he stayed home with me again on Friday.
Like many moms, when my child hurts, my maternal instincts heighten and unfailingly force me into slight panic mode.… Continue

When was the last time you changed your windshield wiper blades
? I'm guessing you probably can't remember. Wiper blades play a major role in safe driving
, yet most drivers consider them just another part on their car that needs to be replaced.
According to a recent survey, 78 percent of motorists only change their wiper… Continue

Dog wellness advice on the chat today is with regards to lead poisoning in pets. Lead toxicity or lead poisoning is medically known as Plumbism, and refers to poisoning due to ingestion or inhalation of products containing lead. When lead based paint is on the walls its fine, but when it is disturbed, causing dust and chips of paint to fall to the ground, this is where the problem starts. Dogs especially will ingest pieces of paint - particularly puppies. The dust… Continue

Don't rate me on a scale from 1 to 10
...that's a modern
method for ignorant boys not wise men...evil images, society has
drilled in. It's as primitive as a club and a yell! I prefer the
biblical scale...for it characterizes me very well. Strength, Wisdom
and Kindness...not lazy, weak or mindless. Fashioned by God...not
styled by the designer mob.
If you had your pick of the litter...which would you… Continue

I'm thinking about the summer....dreaming of July 1, when mine really starts (last day of work!) But just as soon as I start dreaming....it turns into a nightmare...You know. It goes something like this:
We sleep in a little later, eat a leisure breakfast, do a few chores, play outside before the blistering temperatures get the best of us. Then we eat lunch, read a little....and then........WHAT?

I'm so sad :( My beloved ABC carrier has bit the dust. I'm going to send
it in to get repaired, but I'll be without a carrier for a while (I
sold my sling, how silly of me)
So does anyone have any suggestions
for a new baby carrier? I'm leaning towards an Ergo, but I'm nervous
about it being bulky. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
