Brokenness…

June is here, and I've met it with fear and trepidation. Midterms are enough to make me crazy right now, but compound that with a couple of cases of Strep Throat and menstrual cramps that have more often than not feel like labor - well, it's not fun. On top of that the van needs… Continue reading Brokenness…

Time to Buckle Down

So these 2 counseling classes I'm taking this summer are requiring serious chunks of study time.

It’s a Sunny Day – Grab a Big Cup!

Good Morning - it is a GORGEOUS morning here. Sunny, cool (but not cold) and looking to be a really beautiful day. Got my coffee ready this morning - but you'll have to settle for wheat toast with peanut butter this morning (although for people like me, that's not something to "settle" for - I… Continue reading It’s a Sunny Day – Grab a Big Cup!

Singing Out Loud

Not surprising to some of you, I have been known to be a tad, er, "Dramatic" at times. For those of you who have known me long enough, you may remember back to my younger days when I sang in front of church and participated in church dramas - whether as part of the children's… Continue reading Singing Out Loud
