Early Riser

I’ve always been a night owl and an early riser. What I haven’t always been great at is making myself go to the gym. Never needed to being naturally thin my entire life. Then life happens - birth of my girlie in my 30s, then the discovery of a low acting thyroid after trying to... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversation

Last week, I took Miss M to the DMV to update her State ID as she changed her last name a year ago this month (July) to incorporate my maiden name, and to have the same name as me and to have her Pappy's last name as well. Yes, we are those ladies who hyphenate.... Continue Reading →

When People Disappoint

For myself, when decisions have been made that were out of my control; I chose to stand up, brush myself off and move... Continue Reading →

Take Time to Slow Down

Rush here. Rush there. Do this. Do that. Thinking of that while I'm doing this. Story of my life. It really hit me yesterday as GW and I went to Columbus for a couple of nights to celebrate wedding weekend with family and friends. We went to one of our favorite spots, Cooper's Hawk Winery,...

Father’s Day 2.0

I sat down to write about my second Father's Day "without" my Dad when it began to thunder. I am still smiling. Why, you ask? Because if you read my tribute words that I spoke at his service, you know that every time it thunders we say it is THE Paul Williams building mansion sites... Continue Reading →

Wisdom Teeth

Today, Miss M had her wisdom teeth extracted. Every night since booking the appointment, I have awoke in the middle of the night thinking about it. By the Grace of God, she is a healthy child. She's only had to have blood drawn once. So today, I worried how she would handle the IV, the... Continue Reading →

394

Thirteen months today to be exact. I can't believe that a month has flown by since the marking of the year that my Dad went home. So many times I have wanted to sit down and write about that day. The love and support from friends who are more than friends ~ they are family... Continue Reading →

363

363 ~ that is the number of days that have seem to have flown by and have crawled all at the same time. 363 ~ that is the number of days I have moved forward with one foot in front of the other and forged on with some days being better than others. Very few... Continue Reading →

Lessons of 2017

Lessons of 2017 ~ What have I learned? What will I take into 2018 with me? What will I leave behind in 2017? I have learned that God is good all of the time and that God's Grace is sufficient. I have learned that if I stop and listen to all the things around me... Continue Reading →

Listening

Last Wednesday, I had went to town to run some errands before picking M up from school. I called my Momma as I do on a daily basis to check in and to catch up for the day when I instinctively pulled over in front of a friend's brother's store to see her for a... Continue Reading →

Our First 365 Days

A wise man told me back in May that this is a year of firsts for our family. My first birthday, first Father's Day, first 4th of July, on and on without my Dad. I explained to him that we made every day special not just holidays while I appreciated what he was sharing with... Continue Reading →

Making Each Day Count

This past weekend was packed full of activities much like any other day of the week in my world. Meetings, cross country meet, outdoor music festival in our beautiful downtown City Park and a Sunday full of shopping, a lunch date with my GW and dinner with friends. I have always said if you aren't... Continue Reading →

Where do people get off?

I just spent the last hour and 48 minutes on the phone with one of my closest and dearest friends talking about where do people get off thinking they can basically say anything and do anything to someone. Is it the social media era where people hide behind keyboards, monitors and hand held devices where... Continue Reading →

True North

GW took me away for the weekend at the beginning of the month to celebrate my birthday and he invited some of our nearest and dearest friends to join us. We spent an entire day and evening together. At one point I realized that my cell phone hadn't needed to be on a charger at... Continue Reading →
