Doing What We Say We Will

Integrity…a characteristic that we all believe we have, but very few of us do.  Sigh. Dictionary.com defines integrity as an adherence to moral and ethical principles, along with the soundness of moral character and honesty.  Basically, I call it doing what we say we will do. As a “big talker Betty Crocker” I am all […]

Why Read Scripture?

It’s amazing what you can learn from an eight-year-old! This morning as we were getting ready for school, Jake (the eight-year-old) told me he was really scared of airplanes.  Of course, flying was the topic of discussion because husband and father, Lee, had just left earlier for a business trip. I asked Jake why he […]

Life is Funny!

Every year around this time, I get sick.  It’s been no different this year. For five days I wrestled with a 101° fever, body aches, headaches, a horrendous cough and more.  To say I was miserable is being nice.  Just ask my husband, Lee! Thankfully, Lee and our two boys, Jake and Chase, picked up […]

Mama

I found this poem I wrote in 2009 and I thought it was appropos to the upcoming weekend’s celebration of Mother’s Day. I love being a mom and I’m lucky enough to have my mom with me this year. Unconditional love is what mom’s are all about.  We learn it from them and then learn […]

Teaching Moments

I think the instruction manual was lost in the births of my two children.  They both came into this world without a handbook on good parenting. Pregnancy was difficult enough…now I’ve got to know what to do with these little ones?  WHAT?!?!?! How in the world am I supposed to know how to train, teach, […]

Kindergarten

Last night we took our youngest son, Chase, to Kinder Camp.  WOW…was he excited, scared, shy and intrigued.  And was I ever excited, sad and apprehensive that I’m allowing someone else to have the opportunity to influence my second child – BIG TIME.  (I’ve already seen the changes that have occurred with the introduction of […]

Happy Birthday, Chase!

It’s hard to fathom that my baby turns five-years-old today!  Crazy.  It seems like yesterday I was impatiently waiting to deliver this little boy into the world amid the stresses of working, raising a family and trying to keep this vehicle called life in the middle of the road! Looking back, I didn’t realize that […]

Foul Mouth Meg

My name is Meg and I have a problem with swearing.  Now, it’s not as bad as it used to be, but the words that come out of my mouth are still not stellar. Anyone who knows me knows this to be true.  I’m sure they would agree that the F-word is the favorite and […]

Kids and Christmas

When I think of teaching my two sons about what Christmas is truly all about, I start to shake in my boots!  (Cute, brown, leather five-inchers from Nordstrom would be preferable!) Me and kids and Christmas?  AND I have to teach something??  You must be kidding. Teaching children is not one of my gifts.  Craftiness […]
