Struggling in the Stillness

Sunday was an amazing day! Even though the day didn’t start as I had planned because I slept through the alarm and never made it to church, it ended up being filled with fun, sun and friends. No complaints here and I am thankful to have been blessed in spite of my mistake!!! As I […]


Okay, you know you are getting a revolting phone call when you hear the school nurse start the conversation with, “Meg, I’m so sorry that I have to tell you this….” WA, WA, WA…WHAT did you say?!? Chase has lice. Uh…so does Jake. Crap. Well, the good news is…hm…there is no good news here.  Sigh. […]

Now What?

Last week’s tumultuous events with the Boston Marathon bombing, the West, Texas plant explosion, the mid-west flooding and the play-by-play apprehension of the alleged bomber has me wondering what is going to happen this week? Talk about one heck of a wild ride! Jeez! Now what? I’m more than sure that these events aren’t the […]


Man, I absolutely abhor when bad things happen.  Don’t know about you, but it makes me feel powerless, out of control and more than a little fearful.  Not to mention the sympathy I have for the victims and their loved ones. Of course, such is the way of this world. My dad would use the […]

Crabby Crisis

Wow, have I been crabby lately! I can tell it’s been a longer irritable stint than usual because even one of my dear old neighbors commented that I’d been cranky. Leave it to the ones closest to you to put you in your place! Thanks, Ray! God must be trying to tell me something because […]

Recently, I learned this the hard way after seeing a post on Facebook that Joel Osteen was leaving the Christian church and delving into atheism. There were many comments on a linked website about […]

Tax Time

April 15th, the dreaded tax day, is right around the corner.  If you haven’t already bought your TurboTax or dropped off your receipts to the CPA…you are behind the 8-ball.  Really. This week is all the time you have left to complete the countless forms until your eyes glaze over unless you file an extension. […]

Knocking out Negativity!

Have you ever noticed how some people can poo-poo on just about anything? For example: Yippee!  The Easter Bunny brought me chocolate! (Them) – You know you are just going to eat that and get fat. Listen to this great idea for a new career path! (Them) – You know you’ll never do that. Can’t […]

But…Sunday is Coming!

Love, love, love Easter Sunday!  Not only does it represent the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, but we can indulge in our favorite SWEETS! Yum! Can you tell I gave up sugar for Lent?  What was I thinking?!?!!? For the past 40 days of the Lenten Season, I have drooled and craved anything with […]
