Time Together

Ahhh my lil punkin. Isn’t she the cutest? I love pictures and I love that Facebook pops up with memories every year. It made it easy to create this collage of my punkin at the Fall Festivals through the years.

The last two years, we didn’t go to many. October is a hard month for me and the last couple years I think it just got the best of me. I adore festivals though! (Not fairs, just to be clear.) I love the atmosphere, the holiday feels you get, the sights of seasonal things whether it’s pumpkins, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed. Basically I love the months of October – New Years!

It’s Just Talking

Prayer, that is. It’s just talking to God. There’s no right or wrong way to do it. Sometimes I think I should sound more spiritual… but really that’s not my style. It’s just not how I do it. And then I remind myself that everyone can sound different when they pray because there are no rules when it comes to prayer!

To Be Held, #DVAM

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month – a month where I usually share my journey of where I’ve come from in an effort to raise awareness, spread hope, and share resources.

This year, so far, I haven’t felt compelled to share anything. I actually thought God was going to let me off the hook! lol! However, yesterday a song hit me right in the gut, a song that took my breath away, and took me right back to my darkest moments and reminded me that it was God who held me and got me through.

Because I Can

I love this picture and quotes from my Dad and my daughter. My dad is a firm believer in focusing on the good, the positive, the things you want and bringing them into your life and he teaches that to my punkin as well.

This was one of those moments where you go, ahhh she’s getting it. 🙂

When my dad asked “Why are you going to have a good day?” He meant, what’s going on today that will make it good?

But my daughter was just planning on having a good day because, well, why not?

So this picture was taken on a trip to Orlando when we went to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. I LOVE that place because I am obsessed with pictures and what better place to capture some awesome moments?!

Then, when I get home, I look for quotes by the famous people that are wax statues and add my favorite of the quotes I find to the picture! I did several awhile ago (I think two years ago!) and never posted them or wrote with them so I added some to my media file to pull out as I wanted.

Today, we land here.

Be Where You Are

So the last month plus has been a bit difficult. I’ve had a few extra migraines, some back pain, and some inconsistency with being able to get the medicine that I needed. It wreaked havoc on my body, mind, and emotions. We also started back to school (I’m teaching Home Connect 3rd grade and LOVING it) and that has taken a lot of time and energy.

So. I haven’t blogged.


I’m not going to let myself feel guilty about it.

A Work in Progress

God is working on me and has laid a number of challenges across my path for the past month. It’s only been in the last week, however, that I’ve realized what I am supposed to be working on! When the same challenge or same yucky feelings pop up again and again, it can be wise to just ask “What am I supposed to learn from this?”

A prayer for Healing

I was challenged listening to the message from church on Sunday. In it, the pastor talked about faith and the perseverance of prayer. How the perseverance of prayer produces something.
