Calm. Finally. For most of my life, I can remember thinking after something was over, I can finally be calm. After I get my paper for class written. After the wedding. After I graduate. After I pass my boards. After my daughter is born. After my husband finds a good job. After we move. After… Continue reading Calm after the Storm
Lately, I have been paralyzed by worry. A lot of things in my life that are up in air. Transitions are eminent, whether I like it or not. I've been packing for our upcoming move, which was already stressful for me. Now, it turns out, we might not only be moving across town, but out… Continue reading Stop the worry. Start the JOY!
Sometimes, you just have to laugh. Saturday morning used to be my designated laugh time when I was a kid. Poptarts, cartoons, and the comics in the newspaper delighted me each Saturday morning.

Hope everyone had a joy-filled Easter! Last Monday, I discussed how I love Mondays because I am rested and motivated. This Monday, I am felt more like I was drowning.

I spend a lot of my time with Miss J. I stay at home with her while my husband works. Even when he is home, Miss J still nurses, and never figured out how to take the bottle. On top of all of that, she will only sleep on me, so even nap times do not… Continue reading Just for ME!
That is right! Recently, I have been looking forward to Mondays. The Lord really knew what he was doing when he prescribed rest on Sundays. It sets me up for truly marvellous Mondays.
