Commitment

The start of a New Year brings about much discussion of resolutions, goals, plans, objectives and getting ourselves motivated to make this year better than the last. Clearly, the year ahead is on my mind because I’ve already written two blogs in the past few weeks about making plans and moving on.  Honestly, I thought […]

If God’s on My Side…

Have you ever had a situation that scared you to the bone, but you had no power to change it? I’ve decided if you live long enough, you might have more than just one of these circumstances and I can only hope that through each event we are strengthened and made wiser. Life throws curve […]

The Vision Board

Change is a’comin’!  I know it, I feel it and I have failed to prepare for it.  (If the act of thinking prepares oneself for the future, than I should be the most prepared person in the world.  But, I’m pretty sure preparation takes action).  Argh! “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, […]

Ants in My Pants

Is it summertime, yet? I seem to be getting antsy for the lazy days of summer, vacationing with friends and family, reading some good books and resting from the hectic schedule of everyday life. What’s funny is that as I’m looking at my list of items to do over the summer…the calendar looks as busy […]

Making Plans

Summer is swiftly approaching.  Well, it’s more like looming over my head with a cloud of question marks!!  Of course, there are many things I’d like to accomplish and lots of fun to be had, but planning and priorities seem a little daunting at the moment. Instead of looking forward to a time with my […]

Paying Taxes

Everyone knows what today is…it is Tax Day!  In fact, this year we get an extra two days to mull over the papers and wring our hands to figure out if we owe or get a refund from the government because of the District of Columbia’s Emancipation Day that fell on Monday. We filed several […]

Mysterious Ways

God works in mysterious ways….  I have heard this mantra my entire life.  Most of the time it is said when something terrible or unexplainable happens and the onlookers are at a loss of what to say to the victim.  Basically, it’s said when we don’t know the why, the how and the what for. […]

Now What?

Toys are strewn all over the house, dirty dishes are stacked in the sink and the garbage can is filled to overflowing.  The boys are playing quietly upstairs with new toys and watching new movies. (Yes, even the “big” boy is playing with his new toys, too.)  Sigh.  It’s the day after Christmas. And my […]

Resolution Strategy

Middle of December is about the time of year when I start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.  Goals are thought of, written down, and plans are put into place to have a successful new year. Clearly, I am not alone in this endeavor.  Corporations, small-business boutiques and people alike want the incoming year to be […]
