How important is it?

One of my favorite things about my 12 Step Recovery group is that it gives me slogans to live by that can be recalled readily for any given situation. If you aren’t part of one, you should know that one probably exists to help you with whatever you are dealing with; struggles with being aContinue reading “How important is it?”

How’s hurried and harried Heather?

Since we connected last, I am proud to say that I have mastered the 4 areas (as outlined by John Mark Comer) required to “ruthlessly eliminate hurry” from my life. Granted, I was in Myrtle Beach when I wrote my last entry, came home for one day and flew out to Malibu, California to seeContinue reading “How’s hurried and harried Heather?”

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.

But, now that she is going to be 16, we are realizing there are just certain parts of a ParisContinue reading “Lost and Found”

Emergencies

The other day, as we were headed out the door for school, my daughter remembered that she needed shorts for her PE class. Black shorts and only black shorts. It was a Monday morning so our weekend laundry piles were still teetering on the dryer in the basement. We searched and searched like maniacs forContinue reading “Emergencies”

Burdened?

Recently I bought a used hot tub. Now, my husband may never get in it (something about other people’s bodily funk having been in it before…),, but nevertheless, it’s here. Getting it here was an experience. It came from out of town and I had to arrange the transportation. Naturally, I hired the cheapest companyContinue reading “Burdened?”
