Be still, and listen

I’m in a season of stillness. I’m watching, and listening to those around me. I’m decluttering my life of things, negativity and people. Things are easy to get rid of. I’m not a materialistic person, and truth be told, I’ve never owned much. I’m a rather simple person and too much just overwhelms me and […]

Movie Review: I can only Imagine (Don’t read if you don’t want spoilers)

This movie “I Can Only Imagine,” has been heavy in my heart since I watched it a few weeks ago. So many people raved about this movie, I finally broke down and watched it. I am not a person who sits around and watches TV. I liked the movie, but was very disappointed. Knowing it […]

First day of school in the trailerhood

No backpacks to be packed, no excitement over new clothes, and butterfly bellies don’t disturb the sleep, but at last, it’s time to begin school in the trailerhood.

Positively in control

It’s being who I am with no censors, and no walls. It’s complete honesty without fear of how someone reacts. It’s being surrounded by people […]

To all the fluffy girls

To all the fluffy girls

It’s 7am, and you are jumping out of the shower, stepping in the scale only to berate yourself in front of the mirror (for the millionth time this week), because the scale didn’t reflect the salads you’ve been gagging down when you really wanted the pizza, chocolate or burgers. More self hatred follows when you […]

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day to all the men who have stepped up in the life of a child! The saying goes that any man can create a child, but it takes a real man to be a father. My husband came into our lives at a time that had truckloads of emotional baggage that we are […]
