Simplification

simplification

It’s time to simplify. I am at a point in my life where there’s just too damn much going on. 4 kids will TOTALLY do that to you. I really am not 100% sure what I want at the moment in regards to where I want to live or who I want to be, I just know I want life …

Do You Fear Setting Boundaries

setting boundaries

I originally wrote this post on BOUNDARIES in 2010 – on my now defunct personal blog because some lame-o stole my domain. booo.. Anyways, stumbled across it in the archives and thought it was still something that means a lot in my life and that i’d share. Many many years ago, I worked as a call-in operator (think customer service …

Yesterday, I started an unload of how life has changed for me in 3 significant ways. Yesterday, I talked about BEING REAL, today’s let’s talk about RELEASING SHAME. Oh SHAME.

Being Real – Be Who You Are

be real

I just feel God working in my life in a way, I don’t know how to explain. It’s certainly not financially. It’s more like He is just given me a few keys that have unlocked parts of my brain that have me viewing things so differently than I would of a few years ago. 3 things ring true. 3 things that …

Sometimes You Just See the Light

seeing the light

Me and the kids were hiking on trails at a local museum. It’s a short trail and hiking does NOT fall into our typical everyday or even sometimes routine. It was something new and actually something we all enjoyed (so maybe TEXAS, if you give us good summer weather, we may just do this more often.) The trail we walked …

I Love How He Loves Me

molly thornberg

I love how He loves me. And I love that He connected me with a man that loves me the way he loves me. Sappy? Yes. But it’s the truth. I know I am not an easy person to love: I am a gypsy at heart. I say bad words. I am unconventional. I don’t take direction well. I suck at …

Stop to Smell the Flowers

stop and smell the flowers

*inhale* Do you smell it? If you are in my house, what you inhaled was most likely old pizza, a dirty diaper, dog crap, febreeze and a candle. That’s what the flowers smell like in my life and while I’d love it to smell more like lavender – I’m learning to just STOP and enjoy it for what it is, …

4 Words That Help Me Embrace Life’s Chaos

Having 4 kids is crazy. A house that is never clean. Laundry that never ends. Kids that are never quiet. There is maybe 4 hours of silence a day here, and that would be when we are all sleeping. I am so thankful that these walls can’t talk. I know there are some people with 5, 6, or 19 kids …

The Importance of Mommy Friends

I’m over on Tommy Nelson with a Prayer for Mommy Friends. As a mom to 4 who no longer works in a typical office setting, the need for mommy friends is more needed than ever. The crying, screaming, fighting of these sweet little toddlers aren’t understood by many, but my mommy friends – they TOTALLY get it. They I feel …
