Be a Stopper

I’m not very good at quitting. As soon as that thought entered my mind, another thought followed. ‘You don’t have to quit, but you can stop.’ I’m good at stopping. ♥ ♥ ♥ In speaking with a co-worker he said something that has been rolling around my mind for a week. We don’t know each […]

Give it Time

I wish to encourage you today. No matter where you are in your journey…give it time. Time heals all. After 14 years of Blogging, a woman is finally where she yearned to be with her Blog, and her writing. This is only my fifth year. I’m going to give it time. When I begin a […]

Feel the Music

When we got in the car he hit Bluetooth and said, “Listen to this. Cody Johnson has a new album.” Cody is a good ‘ol Texas boy, so you’ll need to have ears for country music, otherwise they may bleed. 🙂 When we decide to sign that piece of paper to make what we have […]

It’s Romantic Football

A change in perspective. In any relationship you need to spend time together. Even if it’s sitting in the same room. Just be present with one another. Make the most of every moment. When we first met, I didn’t like football. Our second year, I had breast cancer. By the third year, I realised football […]

These Two Worlds

If I sit in the presence of Mr. Smith long enough, the conversation tends to grow deep. Not from me, but from him. I listen, become more quiet, until no words can form. I feel it. This morning, we were sitting on the back porch, coffee in hand, watching Stork fly in over the lake. I […]

Which Way Home

I started writing a Blog lastnight, but again didn’t publish it. With this 30 day challenge, I’m learning I can write anytime of day. Mama always said, “Nothing good happens after midnight.” Well, in my mind there is nothing publish worthy after 9:00 pm. This is what’s happening in real-time. I’m sitting at the dining […]

Different Is Good

When I’m at the lake, the coffee maker usually wakes me up. It’s set on a timer to start brewing, but this morning that didn’t happen. I overslept because I forgot to add water. This year has been so different. Not only walking through Breast Cancer, but my daughter and I were apart for Thanksgiving. […]

You Are Sexy

I came home from Chemo treatment today, and it wasn’t long, I was ready to rest. It’s important to listen to my body now, more than ever. There is one area I have been struggling with though. The changes on the outside are messing with my sexiness. I sent my man this pic today, letting […]

To Be Brave

I have not thought of myself as brave. I can be a Badass, but that occurs when  something, or someone pushes me too far. My daughters says, ‘At that point, you better run.’ I have just enough redneck in me to be scary. People are calling me brave for this Breast Cancer Journey I’m on. […]
