For The Women Who Can’t Write

A friend tagged me in this one, and I loved it! What hit the hardest? I have the freedom and opportunity to write for “all the women in history who weren’t allowed to write”. And, Y’all, there are women on earth TODAY who aren’t allowed to write. I’ll do my best, Precious Women, who hadContinue reading “For The Women Who Can’t Write”

Peace, Not Dread

Mondays should hold peace, not dread. They should be an optimistic look forward at all that’s in store for the week, rather than a reluctant look downward at my shoes as I muster the wherewithal to just get through the coming days. I want my days full of joy and hope, moments of solitude andContinue reading “Peace, Not Dread”

Word of Appreciation Matter

I’m up early this morning, and I already have tears. Good ones, though, thankfully. Every morning, I wake up to an email inbox full of unread messages, at least 30 or 40 every day. A few are marketing emails, some are related to my professional mentoring group, others are humdrum parent questions or receipts fromContinue reading “Word of Appreciation Matter”

Survival Mode

I am often inspired by posts made by my friends, and this one… what a thought! I think many of us are in this mode right now. We’ve been in survival mode. Keeping things running the best can, constantly trying to stay on top of tasks, always playing catch up, working to get enough rest,Continue reading “Survival Mode”

I want you to be happy. Really.

Y’all notice the “support other women” movement happening over the last few years? It’s louder than ever. You can barely scroll any social media outlet twice without seeing posts, verses, and memes about women encouraging women. I don’t know where the sentiment comes from and, seemingly suddenly, why it’s a thing, but I don’t care.Continue reading “I want you to be happy. Really.”

Courier Appreciation Means A Lot

I’m really not so good at thanking those people who are “in my life” making a big impact but who aren’t really “in my life”. No kidding, those FedEx, UPS, USPS, and Amazon drivers bless my soul in more ways than they realize! I should know their names better than I do. I should thankContinue reading “Courier Appreciation Means A Lot”

Sorry I’m Late…

“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”

It’s more than just coffee!

When I come into the kitchen in the morning, my coffee is already made. Keith fixes up the pot while he makes his espresso in his machine. Although sort of a tiny thing, it feels peaceful. I feel loved. The day to come may be filled with absolute madness, but in that moment, all isContinue reading “It’s more than just coffee!”

Different. Nice.

We can be different if you’re nice. If you’re nice, we can be friends. If we are friends, you can expect my loyalty, grace, and support. We can be different if you’re not nice. If you’re not nice, we can’t be friends. If we are not friends, you can (oddly) still expect my loyalty, grace,Continue reading “Different. Nice.”

Thankful today.

It’s a beautiful day, and I’m thankful for a whole lot of stuff. What about y’all? I’ve got coffee…and a few groceries. I think we’re having chili for supper, because I’ve got the stuff to make that. My hubs is the freaking cutest. He’s smart and kind, too, and a good kisser. He’s hard workingContinue reading “Thankful today.”
