Beauty on the hour

“Maggie, your sparkly shirt looks so pretty this morning.” She climbed over the chest at the end of our bed, the morning sun reflecting off the sequins on her pink t-shirt. Her face beamed slightly, disguising a little smile. “YOU look so pretty this… Continue Reading “Beauty on the hour”

Filling the God Love Space

Looking for love in all the wrong places. Right… I’m pretty familiar with that old tune. And I’ve certainly been there, done that. Lots. #IYKYK. While sudsing up and tackling a sinkful of dishes a few days ago, I contemplated this age-old dilemma. Why… Continue Reading “Filling the God Love Space”

No room for failure

Each morning, I spend time reading, praying, and meditating. This morning I started reading the book of Joshua in the Bible. I came across a line in verse five that resonated with me. “I will not fail you or forsake you.” I underlined that… Continue Reading “No room for failure”

I remember attending my first Twelve Step recovery meeting ever. It was an open meeting, and I attended with a friend. I listened. I learned a lot and felt that even though what people were sharing didn’t totally apply to me, there was something… Continue Reading “Dissonance”

Sitting comfortably: Gratitude and couches

Last night, my friend Janet and I shared our dreams with one another. I’m not talking about lofty dreams about life goals. No. I’m talking about couches. Yes. Couches. #MomGoals “I just want a deep, rich blue couch. I love blue. Royal blue, you… Continue Reading “Sitting comfortably: Gratitude and couches”
