After the Hurt – Take Responsibility for Healing Yourself

On a recent rainy day, I found the perfect little place with the best pour over coffee to sit and let the words flow. My goodness it feels good to write again. Work has consumed me for so many months, that I have not had the extra time.  As you all know, I tend to…

Relax and enjoy the day. (Downtown Greenville, SC edition)

After a commitment yesterday morning, I was determined to spend the rest of the day taking it easy.  I went downtown with a tribe member to simply enjoy the open air Saturday Morning Market.

The Dark Cloud and the Rising Sun

I have written and tried to publish this on several occassions. There were times I wrote out of anger. There were times I wrote due to the pain I experienced. But every time, I walked away from writing. Each time, hoping to find the joy I once had in blogging. Not out of anger, pain,…

Easy Like a Sunday Morning: (Series 12) Can it be easy on a flu day?

My sweet #LittleLove has the flu. Yup, for the second year in a row, she has been hit with this nasty, unwelcome virus. I spent another morning checking temperatures, giving medicines, and disinfecting light switches, door knobs, the couch, her pencils, rulers…if I think she touched it, I tried to disinfect it! This mommy has never…

Thanksgiving with friends and family, our Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, sports commitments, getting ready for Christmas… you know the drill. Last Friday, I picked up my #LittleLove…

Appreciate Your Friendships…NOW!

These two silly gals are kind of my everything! Short and sweet… TRUE friends make us happy. They allow us to be silly, they laugh with us, cry with us on bad days, and stand by us on the truly tough days. They accept us despite the faults we possess. They are invaluable. I have been so…
