When did I get so out of shape?!?

Earlier this summer, I offered to help my husband mow the yard and weed/de-grass the flowerbeds. I hate yardwork! But, I try to be a kind wife and, y'all, he was thrilled to have a "project buddy"! I like to think of it as the way I would feel if I walked in from a… Continue reading When did I get so out of shape?!?

Walk as lions…

My family loves music! My husband and I are both former high school band nerds, and play instruments still. My kids usually wake up singing, sing as they play, and dance all throughout the day. It is one of the ways we celebrate our little victories and hold tight through our struggles. In the first… Continue reading Walk as lions…

When I am afraid…

I don't know about y'all, but I am tired of the news. I am sure you can tell if you have read my other posts about recent events in Nashville and online.

News organizations latching on to sound bites and tidbits to fan a spark into a ratings firestorm. Good people who… Continue reading Oh, Nashville…

“Why, God?”

We've all had them. They come in many forms. Late night phone calls. Uniformed officers knocking on the door. Doctor reports that have fearful words like malignant, 3 cm mass, significant mutations, levels not viable for healthy pregnancy, etc. Sometimes, they're less painful but not less unexpected or interrupting. Positive pregnancy tests, meeting the right… Continue reading “Why, God?”

“Don’t forget to dust off your HOPE, Mama!”

Y'all! It has been a crazy summer of traveling. We clocked thousands of miles and had many adventures while making tons of new memories. We did family. And we did it to the fullest. But, when you are gone for weeks at a time and only home long enough to do laundry before re-packing..... the… Continue reading “Don’t forget to dust off your HOPE, Mama!”
