To Go or Not To Go, that is the Question
The other day I was talking to someone about the fact that they were sick.  They didn't really want to be in their room, away from other people, and so were frustrated at the idea that having a fever meant staying away until they were better. Another person...

My last single brother is getting married this summer- on the opposite end of the country and we have decided to attend.  Actually I think God was getting a real kick out of the situation when I told the kids we couldn't afford to go to Florida for vacation...

20 Things I've told the kids in the last 2 weeks:
1. You may not apply Elmer's glue to your entire naked body. It isn't lotion. 2. Please do not stand on top of the potty chair seat to pee, you aren't that good of a shot. 3. No chickens may jump on the trampoline with you. 4. You also may not rollerblade o...

You are What you Eat...or Are you?
Recently I’ve been considering the topic of food. I don’t
know about you but I often find myself wishing that I were rich so I could just

Telling Stories
Today I had a chance to talk with someone about one of my newer discoveries- story telling.  Not the kind that involves picture books and young ears, but rather the ones I tell myself. In my pursuit of happiness and grateful living I am becoming aware (with...
