Welcome to the Redesign…

Good Morning and welcome to the redesign...I decided that the focus of the site needed to be the blog and that it should be really simple and clean...so here we are. Simple and clean is a good thing to get back to, often times I think we go out too far, go overboard with 'stuff', try to fit too much in and that gets exhausting. Sometimes the best thing that we can do, is step-back, ...

Cheers to the ‘Broken’ People…

Ending a season is always bittersweet and I think it’s good to recall the lessons learned within each season of your life.

Leave Crazy to the Crazies

It’s funny really when you find yourself reacting to someone else’s childish and foolish behavior…you know what they are trying to do…get your attention…they can’t get your attention like an adult, by actually conversing...so they start acting out…because of course, any attention for these types of dysfunctional people is a win. So they act out and you find yourself, much to your horror, reacting to them. Instead of doing what needs to be done and ...

AVOID AVARICE

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Fight the good fight of faith…” -1 Timothy 6:10-12 “Avarice has ruined more souls than extravagance.” -Charles Caleb Colton Avarice or greed is one of the deadly sins ...

Who Cares How You ‘feel’ ????

So raising a teenager is an interesting exercise and raising one as a single mom without the Dad involved is sooooo much more interesting…a discussion a moment ago: Me: do your oral presentation, you need to video it and review everything before you do.

Calling out the good by FAITH

“FAITH is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” -Martin Luther King Jr. Faith is also believing in things not yet seen…this is true even in the most horrid of circumstances, in the midst of those types of circumstances your FAITH will enable you to hold to the fact that there IS GOOD in there somewhere and that the sooner you start calling it out in FAITH, the faster it ...
