Take a Minute

The house is quiet and still, but it wasn’t. Two days ago, my daughter brought home a puppy. She went to meet a friend for lunch, and puppy went with. I have some errands to run, but decided to take a minute and enjoy this quiet moment. A small french press enhances a moment. It’s […]

Be the Mama

I try not to rush anymore, but recently I found myself getting sucked into life’s frenzy. This morning it was time to stop. I’ve been watching my daughter. At 19 years old she has wisdom and discernment, and makes sound decisions. I’ve stepped back to let her practice running her own life. Watching how she […]

To Be Seen

We are only given one life. God gave me this Blog title before I fell asleep lastnight. Facebook revealed to me this morning, it was 3 years ago today that I wrote my first Blog. It doesn’t feel like 3 years ago, but looking at my life today it makes sense. I have simplified my […]

Fast or Slow

I used to be afraid of aging. Back then, it was for vanity reasons, but I’m not afraid anymore. I like growing up, and learning new things. Now, to just process it all. I woke up at 6:00 am, grabbed my water bottle, and stepped outside to sit in the porch swing. We have a […]

Choose Your Life

I saw a post this morning that resonated with me. It said, “Make a list of things that make you happy. Make a list of things you do everyday. Compare the lists. Adjust accordingly.” Make your two lists, and adjust accordingly. Choose your life.

Enjoy the Moment

Late yesterday evening, I broke a water pipe outside. I was grateful to be directed to the water shut off valve, and that the explosion of water was outdoors. My first thought was, “Let’s see if I can fix it.” Three years ago, I had a barn full of a little bit of everything. There […]

Enjoy The Plan

I love how life flows. Sitting here at my desk, looking out the window, and seeing a beautiful day in store. Texas has had a lot of rain, so the sunshine feels good. The house was perfectly still a moment ago, until Gus, our Blue Heeler,  decided to jump up and start barking at something […]
