Chasing Happiness

Chasing Happiness

Sometimes I hesitate writing anything that seems to be unthankful, unhappy, ungrateful because I will get that one (or more) comment scolding me.

And it just eats away at me.

I wish it didn’t. I certainly don’t dwell on those as much as I used to, but I wish I didn’t at all.

In my mind, I think of all the responses to change their mind. Usually it comes from someone who has read a post without…

Let’s talk about Lent

Let’s talk about Lent

Lent

Lent is tomorrow.

I’ve never participated in Lent before. I grew up in a Presbyterian church and we had Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter, but I didn’t know about Lent until probably a few years ago.

I’ve been reading on it in detail the past few weeks and it’s just fascinating. I love all the different perspectives, history, and ideas about what to give up. Search Amazon for Lent in Books…

All The Things

All The Things

Let’s catch up, shall we?

Sometimes I feel stretched a bit thin. I write for other places and there is a little voice that says, “But I want this on my own blog.”

I have to remember that sharing my words and what God has given me to other places besides here is a blessing, a fulfillment, and a way for others to connect that might have a similar story. It’s also led to possibilities I would have…

Swiffer Sweep & Trap: For Big and Small Life Messes

#SwifferAtTarget #CleverGirls

Swiffer Sweep & Trap ReviewLast fall, we moved to a home with almost all tile on the floors. I wasn’t sure how this would work at first, being a lover of my vacuuming and seeing those darling lines on the carpet.

::nerd alert::

In the  months that have passed, we’ve grown to love having tile more than carpet. In fact, we both agree that if at all possible, we’ll never go back to a home with mostly carpet again. It’s…

6 Months in Heaven

6 Months in Heaven

6 months today, just a few hours ago, we let Kaden go to be with Jesus.

6 months.

It seems like it just happened. It seems like it never happened.

I wanted to write last night about our night before he passed away. But it was just too much at the moment.

We’d been told that Sunday (8/25) Kaden wasn’t a candidate for a heart transplant because of the possibility HHV-6 might attack a new heart. The…

On Bella and Growing Up

Bella -1

A few weeks ago it was cold outside.

It’s not anymore.

Sorry everyone else that gets a winter. I see your pics and I am also hoping spring comes soon for you all! O_o

Bella has this adorable hat that she wants to wear everywhere. She got herself all dressed on this day – and as she headed outside to play, I thought, “Wow, look how tall she’s getting.”

Fiercely, Brokenly Proud

Fiercely, Brokenly Proud

A few weeks ago, one of the mama’s I follow on Instagram had a picture of her little boy up, with a caption underneath of how she missed him and “wished heaven had visiting hours”.

It was so simple and so incredibly profound, because it wasn’t sad. It…
