Sometimes a Reminder is all we need

My 9-year-old made a New Year’s Resolution: he would write in a journal every day. We sat together on his bed a couple of nights ago, and he showed me what he had written so far; little stories about his day, a note about a math test, frustration over a playground argument. I’m not sure where this sudden urge to write came from, but he seemed pleased with himself and eager to share. Continue reading

A time to rest; A time to write!

It has been three months since I last sat down to write this blog. I sit at Panera, my “go to” spot for a quick writing escape. There is a hot cup of hazelnut coffee within reach. I can spot the same table of retired folks I’ve seen here for years, gossiping and drinking coffee for hours. Headphones in, laptop ready to go! And now I must write… Continue reading

I know when I need a break!

My husband and I returned yesterday from our week long stay in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Our time away was amazing! A beautiful resort, stunning views, fabulous food, time with my husband and ample time for rest. I am so thankful we have the opportunity to travel and family back at home willing to watch our kids while we’re gone! Continue reading

Making the most of my procrastination

I prefer to thoroughly plan, develop and execute tasks. I would not save homework for the last minute, I was rarely forced to cram for tests. So why do I continue to put my weekly writing off until the morning it is “due”?!? Continue reading

When there is nothing to write about…

I put off writing this week, waiting for something inspiring to happen. We just made it through Holy Week and Easter – an ample supply of God moments! But now it feels as if my eyes have been closed. This week it seemed that I spent more time fighting with my 3-year-old than experiencing moments of love with our family. This week I found myself lost in the schedule and far too focused on the next task to pay attention to what God was doing. Sure, there are little stories from the week – little moments of grace and God’s love at work. But no earth shattering, captivating stories to share! Continue reading

Reflection and Commitment – 100 Sundays later…

100 Sundays have gone by since I committed to writing each week about faith and family. 100 Sundays; nearly 2 years! Some Sundays held stories developed and perfected for weeks, while others were thrown together in an hour late on a Sunday night. Yet each week, words were written, failures shared, life captured.
