Sometimes Troubles Become Blessings

Friday, something happened. It’s a common occurrence, probably more common than we’d like to think. One of our cars broke down. My husband’s daily drive is about 70 miles each way. My daily drive is about a two-mile circle. Guess who doesn’t have a car to drive? Me. But you know what? ***it’s a secret***...

The Little Things We Remember

I spent a lot of time being dropped off somewhere until 7th grade. In other words, I wasn’t home after school like a lot of people. My mother wasn’t neglectful, just busy. As a girl, most people loved to push me into the direction of “girl” things. Pink, yellow, sugar and spice and all things...

I watched him still sleeping as if I were still in bed, snoring softly into his pillow. I walked to the bathroom, my toes touching the cold floor,...

The Power of Words in My Life

Words have power. If you’ve ever been told that you were stupid or ugly, if you have ever been told that you are brilliant and beautiful – those are words that can shape your entire personality. Once you hear them, you can’t unhear them. You can’t forget that someone said those things to you. If...

Ever Tried. Ever Failed.

Source: via Adrienne on Pinterest This is where I am. I am trying and failing, but trying again and making progress. Well, let me rephrase… I’m not failing – I’m just “in progress”. Time isn’t over. My time isn’t over. Progress is just slower than I anticipated. I want to succeed and the only way...

One Size Does Not Fit All

I grew up doing well in school, but not that into school. I was highly capable, finishing my homework within minutes of receiving the assignment, way before I left the classroom. Although my habits only changed slightly, my passion for learning grew immensely one year – fourth grade. What was different about this year was...
