I have to admit being a little disappointed that I didn’t get a call for a snow day or a two-hour delay today…it is definitely a Monday 🙂 I’m ready though and willing to start the week off well. A little sore from my weekend of skiing – no broken bones and I didn’t fall… Continue reading Day 7 – Where Have All the Snow Days Gone?
How is it possible we have another snow day? Not that I’m complaining, but I kind of would like a summer break! And I feel like we are getting farther and farther behind at school…which, of course, we are. I do see this as God’s provision for me. I have caught up on my teacher… Continue reading Day 3 – All About Me
Today I am at my home and it is quiet and peaceful and I’m feeling blessed to be here. The kids are sleeping soundly (and late woohoo!!)

I’ve gotten a lot done, but sometimes I feel like I just shuffle things around. … Continue reading What does God have for us?
It was just a very full pipe stand. My first thought was how much they reminded me of my Dad…my second was, “Ewwww…that’s kinda gross…think of the mouths that have been on those!” (ever the mother) Recently I went antique shopping with a friend. I love looking at all the beautiful things, the knick-knacks, and… Continue reading Hope and a Pipe Stand
“Momma, I don’t want grandpa to die, but I know he will feel so much better in heaven.” My sweet 12 year old son uttered those words as we sat in an Urgent Care waiting to see the doctor for the two of us, and while my father lay in a hospital bed waiting for… Continue reading hospice, hope and healing
