Where the Rubber Meets the Road — Co-Creating and Cowgirl Wisdom

To be a good neighbor has been on my heart this year. I’m friends with the neighbor beside and behind me, but want to befriend more. To place more action into the ‘to be kind‘ thought. To really plug into community and show kindness and caring toward my neighbors. To be the house where people… Continue reading Where the Rubber Meets the Road — Co-Creating and Cowgirl Wisdom

Feel the Music

When my daughter first started driving, we lived in the country. There was no traffic unless she took a major highway to visit her Dad or friends. She learned to take the back roads. The advice I offered was, “Let as many people out as possible. If you see someone that needs to enter the… Continue reading Feel the Music

Chasing the Sunset

I’ve started my morning over twice so far. The taste of my coffee wasn’t pleasing, so I made a Chemex. I hadn’t made one in so long, it didn’t drain completely, but this is how I felt regardless. Did it not drain, or did I not give it time? ♥ ♥ ♥ This morning I… Continue reading Chasing the Sunset

Attitude Is Everything

The first house my daughter and I lived in didn’t have a washer and dryer. That was not a deal breaker, we were just excited about our new life. Once a week we went to the Laundromat. I had to make a choice to see this as a positive. We lived in the country and… Continue reading Attitude Is Everything

Use Your GPS

We have a fenced yard, and there has been a plastic bag blowing around it for a week. The wind blows it to a different location, and it sticks to the fence. Everytime my little dog goes outside, he sees it, and charges toward it barking his little head off. I may not know much… Continue reading Use Your GPS

May We All

Driving down the road the other day, I heard a song come on the radio. I recognized the voice, but not the song. It was that kind of song that you cannot sit still while listening to. Florida Georgia Line, has a new song out. I haven’t listened to these guys in a while. They… Continue reading May We All

Keep It Simple

You can create space for simplicity in many areas of your life. This doesn’t mean you’re a simple person; it just means you have chosen to live simply. That could also say, “To simply live.” In 2014, I had a farm where I raised exotic chickens and mini pigs. This one perched on my arm… Continue reading Keep It Simple

Plug Into Community

Whenever I mention attending a public event to my daughter, she says, “No. I don’t like people.” We laugh after she says it, but there is a lot of truth in it. I hear other people saying it too. God wants us to love; He doesn’t mention like. The word ‘love’ is mentioned 365 times… Continue reading Plug Into Community

Learning To Live

We are getting much needed rain here in Texas. I have three chickens in the side yard that have not witnessed rain in a long time. When it began pouring from the sky, they freaked out and started running around. They have a coop to provide shelter, with the door standing wide open, but are… Continue reading Learning To Live

Better Is Coming

Almost two years ago, I looked at my life and asked myself, “Is this God’s best?” It was pretty clear it wasn’t the best because it was a life of barely getting by. God doesn’t barely get by. He is abundant in every area of our lives. I didn’t ask anyone’s opinion of what I… Continue reading Better Is Coming
