Not Enough

Do you ever want more of something? Clothes, shoes, cars, food, etc.? Have you ever felt like you’re not enough? It’s not true. Everyone is a child of God and everyone is enough. But do we ever feel like maybe we’re not? I grew up in a family of four with a mother, father, andContinue reading “Not Enough”

Apparitions: Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady appeared to three shepherd children in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. This is considered a more modern day apparition than the others I have shared with you. It took place during WWI, with foretellings including WWII and beyond. It is widely believed that all of these foretellings have not yet taken place. On MayContinue reading “Apparitions: Our Lady of Fatima”

Watching Myself

Lately I have been watching myself as far as food consumption and content goes. My body and I have a complicated relationship.

Does Size Really Matter?

Size. Body size specifically. Does it really matter? The PC answer is “Of course not!” However, when you have lived in a plus-sized body for any length of time, you know that it does.

My Daughter, the Witch?

I have written before regarding Child #1’s strange behavior, but I want to explain and ask for prayers. My firstborn daughter was stressed when I dropped her off at college last Fall for her Senior year. She told me she did not need me to stay to help her arrange her room, even though IContinue reading “My Daughter, the Witch?”

Do you deal with sibling rivalry in your household? Maybe you grew up with it. Maybe your watch your children or grandchildren going through it. What purpose does it serve, you may wonder? Growing up, my older sister and I did not get along well. I don’t think she ever forgave me for being born.Continue reading “Sibling Rivalry”

Fixing Things

Sometimes we can fix things, a recipe gone wrong, a cake mix that just doesn’t cut it. Other things, we just can’t, a life snuffed out before I had a chance to reconnect, a friend slipping away too quickly. Last Saturday, exactly one week ago, I learned that my friend, Claire, had passed away. What?Continue reading “Fixing Things”

The Great Deodorant Debate

Here’s a subject I’ll bet you never thought I’d cover! It has come to my attention in our home, that there is a great deodorant debate. Some of us like stick deodorant; others prefer gel; I don’t think many of us have even considered spray. Also, is the debate over men’s versus women’s. Yeah. WeContinue reading “The Great Deodorant Debate”

Just Smile

Have you ever noticed that when you smile at someone, they generally smile back? It can diffuse a tense situation or make a new friend. Just turn up the corners of your mouth and let someone know you care. I bring this up because recently child #3, my special needs girl, was having a smallContinue reading “Just Smile”
