Maybe a little gratitude will help
I'm not going to lie. I've been struggling - A LOT. I'm tired, exhausted, and spent. Some days, I think I'm just done. I'm over it. Time to move on. Only it's not that easy, is it? So this morning, as I was feeling all of this before ever even getting out of bed, I... Continue Reading →
Last week I did a "Wonderful Wednesday" post reminding me how wonderful life is with all its many blessings. I think I'll keep it up for a while so here we go! My DH is home! He got home last Wednesday and I am ever so thankful! He has been amazing. He helped me with all... Continue Reading →
I have continued to struggle with The Blues ... A LOT, so I decided to dub today Wonderful Wednesday as a day of counting my wonderful blessings. So ... here we go! My family - They may be spread out, and I might not get to see them often enough, but they are mine and they... Continue Reading →

First, we have the raging hormones during pregnancy and now as they are getting ready to fly the coop, we have the raging hormones of menopause or perimenopause. What's the deal?? Can't we catch a break here? I guess it's just all part of motherhood and... Continue Reading →
It’s a long hard day…
Yep... this is my day... well inside anyway. I'm working hard on not letting it show but when she played the piano and started singing? Waaa.... how will I ever make it through church tomorrow? And preaching at that! Ok, deep breaths... and go take your St. John's Wort NOW!
My Friends, this is hard! I awoke this morning thinking, this is the last time till Christmas I will make her favorite chocolate chip pancakes and I need to go to the store and get the milk to make them. And a silly tear slipped out of the corner of my eye... over milk... over... Continue Reading →
My New Best Friend
So, originally, I thought I would just post about once a week but what the heck, this is therapy and I figure, it's as often as I need it, so here I am again! Yesterday was a rough day. I miss my dog terribly, and I'm already grieving my daughter moving... this empty nest thing... Continue Reading →
