Focus

At the start of each year, God gives me a word to use as my “theme”.  This year, the word is Focus.  I didn’t quite understand why He gave me this particular word at first.  I thought that I was a pretty focused person. I mean, I DO get a lot done so I must […]

Birthday Bash 2013 Intro

Woo-hoo! It’s time for my annual Birthday Bash where I celebrate my birth month by giving YOU great gifts! Like I said on my Facebook Page, this was not my first choice out of the MANY takes we did trying to shoot it but it was the only one I could get to actually upload so […]

My Facebook Breakup

Yes, it is official…I am breaking up with FACEBOOK!  Ok, it isn’t a permanent thing.  Just a separation I guess.  Here is why… I got behind on a lot of things around here while I was caring for our foster baby. He has gone home to live with his birth family and I noticed that in […]

Not MY plan

Well, as you recall, my husband and I went through the classes required for us to become foster parents and we were planning on adopting a teenage girl. Well that didn’t work out and we have decided that for now, we are going to be foster parents. We haven’t had a placement yet but will […]

Direction

This morning I was getting ready to go to the Anti-Drug Coalition of Tipton County monthly meeting and remembered that our meeting location had changed. I was sitting there putting my makeup on and thought “I have NO idea where I am going!” which made me laugh at myself.  The verse that I have pinned […]

Catching Up

     Since my hand started feeling better and I have a moment to sit down, I thought it would be a good time to catch up with you all.  Not that it is 100% better, but at least I can use it.  I am still seeking medical help for it.  In fact, yesterday, I had […]

Do Not Disturb

I love my smart phone.  It keeps me connected at all times.  I can do anything I need and stay in touch with everyone about various projects I am working on…but sometimes, I just need to get away.  I want to be able to enjoy family time without having to respond to an email about […]

Painful Post

It pains me to type this post…no, it really does!  You see, I have somehow managed to injure my left hand and am now sporting this lovely contraption I initially strained it on December 21 and it wasn’t getting any better so last week, I told my husband that since more than a month had […]

Book Review: Hope Springs

I received a copy of Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate to review in June and I don’t know why but I didn’t get a chance to read it until this week.  I have to tell you, the timing was perfect not only because the story starts off on December 23rd, the same day I started reading […]

Magnificent Monday

We had a magnificent Monday!  The kids got their school work done early and since I love seeing my kids working on their assignments, I often take pics of them while they do.  Today, I snapped a lot of my middle child, who usually avoids my camera or makes goofy faces. Here he is working on […]
