Faults

  "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." Peter 4:8 I have been having a tough time lately, especially after this weekend.  As you grow, you realize people in your life aren't perfect, and they too have faults.  They don't expect perfection from you, so why do we…

God Gives Us What We Need…

When I was less than a year old, my biological father left. He and my mom divorced, because my mom is the strongest woman I know. She knew that for either of us to have a chance at life - a good, healthy, and loving life, we needed to be away from him. I saw…

Halloween

Yesterday was Halloween.  I was in my office at work and I thought about all of the Halloween's past.  I know, I know, cliché-esque I know.  Christmas past, Halloween past.  Whatever, go with me. My mom was a single mother, a very young single mother.  Not like a lot of the single mom's you see…

Anxiety

I read one of those “10 reasons why dating a woman with anxiety is unlike dating any other woman” articles the other day.  Thinking, wrongly, it looked interesting.  By the end, I was so irritated by the article and its stereotypes I was seeing red.  I understand I am not the only woman, or person,…

Weekend with the Family

This weekend was a busy, but super enjoyable one.  My grandmother turned 84 Friday.  I drove down to spend the weekend with her.  I got there Friday night, and my mom also came to stay the night, since my dad was fishing out of town for the weekend.  We had a nice visit.  Spending that…

What I’m Reading

I have always been an avid reader; however, after college my reading took a nose dive.  After years of English Literature studies and reading for work, I just did not enjoy it as much as I once did.  I have slowly regained my love of reading, and never lost my excitement for buying new, interesting…

Repurpose

It has been a while since I last updated the masses on the happenings in my world, so what better time than the beginning of a new year.  Happy 2016, everyone! I am always happy to see a New Year come bursting forth with the fireworks, ball drops, and drunken people into the streets; however,…

Happy Belated Birthday, America!

I've always thought Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday. It's the one holiday where my entire family was usually together. My aunts and uncles would come in from wherever they were; we would eat, the cousins would play, there would be lots of noise, and everyone was happy. This year I realized July 4th has been…

Past, Present, Future

I was driving from my city life, to my old country life on Sunday.  I exited the interstate, turned on to a country road and saw the signs, “Come Enjoy Easter Sunday at the Cowboy Church!”  I knew there was a cowboy church not far on the left, and it made me smile as I…

Who Knew?!

I have been feeling pretty low about my career situation lately.  I went to school for this amazing degree, that I love everything about it.  I love literature, I love criticism, I love discussion, and I love analyzing.  I LOVE MY DEGREE!  I worked so hard for it, and I feel like it just sits…
