Hurried and Harried Heather

Call me simple. Or mystical. Or just naïve and superstitious. Call me what you want, but regardless, this is how it works. This is how I know what I am supposed to write about—dare I say-what I believe God wants me to write about. I read a smorgasbord of books every day. Usually a pageContinue reading “Hurried and Harried Heather”

Image-Dragons

I am going to try to make this short and sweet. By now you know that my attention span is limited during regular life, but right now I am on vacation, making me extra focus-challenged. But I can’t seem to stop thinking about an experience I had last week and want to share it withContinue reading “Image-Dragons”

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”

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”

“What you think of me is none of my business.”

What other people think of me is crucial (good or bad). Other people’s success is a threat to mine (especially in areas that I wish to be successful). If I am not “as good as” someone else, I am inadequate. If you read my blog about a month ago (A Beautiful Beatdown), I listed aContinue reading ““What you think of me is none of my business.””

“You Too? Me Too.”

As I get closer to publishing my collection of blogs, I’ve had to start thinking more seriously about my target audience, a title and potential ideas for a cover. I don’t like this part. It’s not in my gift set or why I started writing. Last week I talked to someone who has a degreeContinue reading ““You Too? Me Too.””

Are All Your Cards On The Table?

Several years ago my husband and I led a Small Group. For those of you who are part of a contemporary church, you probably already know what that is. If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it’s essentially a group of people that meet together on a regular basis and is, um, small. The ideaContinue reading “Are All Your Cards On The Table?”

Oh Ye of Little Faith

I am not positive that at the end of this entry, I will actually post it for anyone else to read. I just need to get some things out of my head. FIrst, I have to admit that I have done it again—believed the lie that plagues me: “Unless I am currently living in peace,Continue reading “Oh Ye of Little Faith”

“Trigger-Happy”

Does anyone else have “triggers?”. I remember a superficial trigger I used to have when I was pregnant with my oldest child. Before that time, I was an exercise and health-food Nazi. In college, while all the girls were ordering pizza at 10:00 at night, I was eating my Snackwell Cookies (which may or mayContinue reading ““Trigger-Happy””
