5 on Friday: Fun Stuff

What a busy week it was, I’m so glad it’s Friday, are you? This week was full of aha moments and even teachable moments from being on crutches. I felt the kindness of others this week in a big way as I hobbled around in week three of being on crutches. My 5 On Friday feature is a post [...]

5 on Friday: A Topsy Turvy Start

This year has already been full of topsy turvy emotions. Sad, mad, and well bad. Bad as in eating anything I want on most days, just as I’m not able to work out and enjoy my regular routine. 2017 started off with a bang when I broke the fifth metatarsal bone in my left foot. Everything [...]

5 on Friday: Let the Holidays Begin

Whew, this week has to be waving a white flag or maybe it’s crying out UNCLE! It was so full and full of goodness. Just what the holidays are made of. There was so much joy in this week, celebrating the holidays, making new friends, talking about Jesus and what He’s up to over pie, making [...]

Today, Tomorrow. Gratitude & Goals (Nov-Dec)

I wondered if I would make it through all of the commitments slated for November. Some were self-imposed, many were work projects, nonetheless the load felt heavy. I’ll make it if I can just get past this one, I told myself. The good news is, well, I survived and I’m here to talk about it. I [...]
