Mom Guilt

Mom Guilt

I've been feeling pretty good lately about my Mom Skills. Despite me recovering from surgery and being pretty laid up, my little guy has still been behaving pretty well, helping me a lot around the house, and still enjoying his 'school time.' Before getting sick, I had been taking him on lots of outings and park trips, and we'd been having a lot of … [Read more...]

Facing My Mortality

There I was. Curled up in the floor of my closet, head in my hands- sobbing. Begging and pleading with God. Pouring my heart and fears out to him. Scared to death. Crying out loud. Begging for peace. Asking for forgiveness. This past week I was brought face to face with my own mortality. Being in my late twenties, most of the time I still … [Read more...]

Lip Balm Love

Lip Balm Love

I am a self-proclaimed lip balm addict. I always have at least 2 in my purse, a bunch in my makeup drawer, and probably one in my car. I tend to get dry lips, even in the summer, so I am constantly reapplying. I even slather on a thick coat before bed time. I can't help it! And it's a good habit that I won't be breaking any time soon. Today I am … [Read more...]

Especially this summer, when we're constantly running from the pool to the park to the splash pad and so on. Who has the time?
