It’s Only Temporary

Little Fears came out with a new t-shirt. I saw this shirt on Wednesday, in the midst of a wildly rainy day. Knowing my flower garden would love the rain, I wondered what storm other’s may be going through. You know…the storms of life. My divorce was a three year storm. Breast Cancer was a… Continue reading It’s Only Temporary

Cross the Bridge

Living in the past, or uncertainty. It’s not healthy to unpack our bags and stay. Looking at pictures of bridges, it dawned on me how helpful they are. A bridge allows us to easily navigate over water, or treacherous ground. When I was a kid, the best part of the car ride was driving over… Continue reading Cross the Bridge

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

It’s Almost Over

A year changes you a lot. It’s hard to believe that a year ago, the lump in my left breast was so painful, I could hardly breathe. Fast forward to this moment. I have one more Radiation treatment left. That lump is not there anymore, and this Breast Cancer Journey is ending. Every ending has… Continue reading It’s Almost Over

Doing It Afraid

Lastnight was the first night since the port placement that I didn’t sleep sitting up. I was tired of that position, so I curled up in a ball on my left side, and woke up with no pain. I was scared to lay that way. The left side is where the tumor, and port live… Continue reading Doing It Afraid

There was the Kuerig, standing at the ready with a pod in place, waiting to be pressed. One of my favorite mugs underneath, sitting at the ready. Before grabbing the handle, I noticed… Continue reading Happiness and Heroes

I’m Ready Now

Driving down the road this afternoon, to pick up my daughter, this song came on the radio. It’s by Plumb, and she always pierces my soul. I listened intently to the words, and discovered they describe this path I’m on. I just wanted to share this with you here. Being a Letitgocoach, the first few… Continue reading I’m Ready Now

Way Beyond Me

I had a call from a friend this morning. His wife wants to move out to the country. He is a city boy and had lots of questions about wild animals, sustainable living and the Internet. He thinks I’m brave being a single Mom, living in the country. I think he’s brave for living in… Continue reading Way Beyond Me

Just Being Me

There is a reason it feels good to be loved when we are going through pain. That is why we go to a funeral home, to see the family of the deceased, to show them we care and help them through their loss. I love the way SC Lourie writes. It’s like her very soul… Continue reading Just Being Me
