Hey, hey! How about we go shopping together? I don’t know why, but I kind of love those posts that give me a peek into someone’s actual day– what she’s up to, what she buys, where she goes, what she spends… it might be kind of nosy, but it also just feels [...]
It’s about to warm up. We’re headed out of Winter and into Summer because, let’s be honest, both Spring and Fall always feel woefully short, do they not?
It’ll be awhile before it’s too hot around here in the North, but we know it’s coming, [...]
“Nobody usually sits with me on the bus.”
I hear the softly spoken words laced with so very much sadness, and my heart beats hard in my chest, pounding with indignation over the hurt feelings of this tender-spirited child.
Out loud, I say, “Well, that doesn’t matter, right? Your [...]
I was scrolling through Facebook and she noticed it.
“Aw!” she exclaimed.
I stopped to see what had caught her eye.
It turns out it was a funny little graphic– one of those shots comparing an image from Pinterest to the actual results someone got when attempting it. [...]
When you lose a baby, there are things that you expect to hurt– and they do. These might include:
pregnancy announcements from others seeing pregnant bellies out and about your due date coming and going insensitive remarks having your regular cycle return seeing/hearing newborn babies … and more
These events can [...]
Three weeks ago, I told you all the I was embarking on the LISTERINE® 21-Day Challenge. This involved flossing, brushing, and rinsing twice a day, every day, for twenty-one days. It also meant my kids got to use their very own rinse, something about which they were VERY excited. (Really, that “very” deserves about a dozen exclamation points because, let me tell you, if I dared forget to pour that rinse? I heard about it!)
I’m actually a pretty darn diligent little brusher and flosser, but I do confess to a night here and there when I pass out on the couch and my chompers fall by the wayside. (Terrible, I know.) This challenge forced me to be much more vigilant and, if I felt myself start to drift, I’d pop up and announce to my husband, “I’m gonna do my teeth so I can crash without thinking about it!”
This resulted in my being very, very consistent about blushing AND flossing twice each day. Not only did this mean my teeth felt clean pretty much all the time, but I noticed a real difference from all that flossing! Continue reading Post-not really!-LISTERINE® Challenge Recap
So, I was trying to figure out what I should write about today and, suddenly it hit me– I haven’t told you all very much about A. lately! So, if you’ve followed A’s whole saga, this might be interesting to you. If you haven’t? I won’t be the least bit offended if [...]
Well, good morning to you!
Rather than have you read a whole bunch here this morning, I’d be simply tickled pink if you’d pop on over and read my words one of two other places. (I know, right? What are the odds that my posts would go [...]
I’ve been teaching my second grade church school class about vocations. Our book keeps it really simple and straight-forward, which is something I appreciate:
The word vocation means ‘what we are called to do.’ Every Christian has the vocation to live as a follower of Jesus. God calls us to do [...]
Buying our first home at 23 had made us a bit of an anomaly among our peers. Yes, I certainly know that there are people who get their first mortgage at a younger age than that but, realistically, we were only a couple years out of college and it was pretty strange [...]
