Watch Your Battitude

Maybe it’s a common suggestion, or maybe people think I am just a brat, but over the years I have occasionally been given the assignment of making a gratitude list. Sounds easy enough, but for some reason my lists are pretty trite. Just the standard stuff that most anyone would be grateful for (homes, kids,Continue reading “Watch Your Battitude”

IT part 2: You are still not IT

“Write in the messy” she said. Oh, wait, that was me saying that. This morning I am feeling particularly trapped and overwhelmed by the “cares of this world”. I spoke about this very thing at a women’s retreat this past weekend. In preparing and sharing I was reminded that it is often the little obstaclesContinue reading “IT part 2: You are still not IT”

IT (You are not IT)

Pretty sure IT is one of the scariest movies ever. The movie IT, by Steven KIng, is about a demonic clown who terrorizes a group of kids. Just watching the previews is enough to give me nightmares. And to be honest, that’s the only part of the movie I have ever watched; the previews. IContinue reading “IT (You are not IT)”

Start talking to yourself

It has recently been confirmed that I am not crazy. Well, at least “not crazy” in the sense that I am not lying in my book when I say over and over and over that “we are not alone and there is always hope.” This confirmation has come about because I see signs and hearContinue reading “Start talking to yourself”

Gray days

Sometimes I get going so fast that I forget that the reason I started writing my blog in the first place was to not only update people on the status of my Leukemia but to help myself “reason things out” on paper. I had an overload of information and some life-altering circumstances going on atContinue reading “Gray days”

Jerk for Jesus, pt. 2 | 10:1 Ratio

Psychologists tell us that for every one negative message we deliver (or receive), there should be 10 positive messages for counterbalance. That goes for teachers, parents, spouses, bosses, etc. That makes us all sound a tad on the emotionally fragile spectrum when you put it that way, but let’s just unpack that truth for aContinue reading “Jerk for Jesus, pt. 2 | 10:1 Ratio”

(Don’t Be A) Jerk for Jesus

I just returned from a wonderful event called CPE (Christian Product EXPO). In a nutshell, this is a time for retailers to view new potential products for their stores. My goal, as an author representing my new book, was to do everything in my power to get a book in their hands, hoping and prayingContinue reading “(Don’t Be A) Jerk for Jesus”

I Need An Interpreter

When I took my test to get my real estate license, I went in pretty confident. I had aced every practice test and felt even a smidge over-prepared. All I had to do was pass with something like 75%. It wasn’t like this grade was going on a report card or anything. After 3 hoursContinue reading “I Need An Interpreter”

Off the Emotional Sobriety Wagon

In the past month, since my father-in-law passed away on June 19th, 2021, it has been a whirlwind. We spent a few days in Vegas when he passed, came home, and I left 3 days later for a work trip in South Carolina. A week after I returned, we left for a memorial service inContinue reading “Off the Emotional Sobriety Wagon”
