  1. Remembering

    by , 05-26-2014 at 01:23 PM
    M has a good memory. Like a crazy photographic one of almost all of his 6 years on earth. It is a gift for sure. Although sometimes it can bite me in the booty when in moments of desperation/distraction I may have promised the sun, the moon, and the stars. And by golly, it will not be forgotten


    Today is a day of remembering those who have fallen for our freedom. This thought prompted me to think about the many times God asked us to remember. To remember His promises, His ...

L is doing just fine, munching away on a waffle while watching Leap Frog Letter Factory for the 40 millionth time. This scenario happens a lot and it is the reverse at times, although L is not quiet in his sulking but rather vocal at the injustice that has been committed.

    "But why, mom?"

    "But when, mom?

    "But how?"

    I hear these questions multiple times a day like most parents. And nine times out of ten my answer is, "because I said so." Such concrete parenting

    My husband has been putting in for a program that would terminate his commitment to his current job for, oh, 3 years now. And each time it has been denied. My answer to him was simple, "stop being a rock star ...

    Patience and Perseverance
    Ahh... the two P's. Patience and Perseverance. Much has happened in the last few days that has brought the words (sometimes begrudgingly, okay most times if I am honest) to the forefront of our conversations.

    My husband had a fantastic outing planned for us all on Saturday night. We were going to go to an old fashioned ice cream parlor and then we were going to the drive in movie theater. We may have made a slight mistake in sharing with our oldest ...
