Driven

I am driven. Moved to do more, be more, step up and make a difference. The problem is I don’t know where to begin, what to do to make this huge difference I feel compelled to make. As I grow older, I often notice a sense that I am missing something. But, when I honestly evaluate all I […]

Thankful

This year feels like it is not really Thanksgiving. Half of my family will be out of town. My daughter who is the vegetarian and on a perpetual “healthy eating” kick does not want to have a feast. So what does that mean for the holiday? A day off to put me totally behind and […]

Submit or not to submit? That is the question.

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them. Colossians 3:18-19 I can remember sitting in Bible class when this passage came up and I heard the collective gasp of hostility run through the women present. It was like the leader had […]

“Crawling”

Do you ever have those days when you wake up with eyes swollen, puffy and red due to a crying jag from the night before? Sometimes it is because of a wonderful or wonderfully sad book I have been reading late into the night, or because of a mood I am in due to what […]

Demons

I struggle with demons. Okay, not real ones, but the kind that get into my head and eat away at me and press and push until I am almost powerless to do anything other than the thing they want me to. You know those compulsive thoughts that just will not stop running around in your […]

Book Review “The Waiting Room”

I just finished reading another book I found here on word press, “The Waiting Room” by Alysha Kaye. It had an unusual story line that I really enjoyed in spite of it falling way outside the spectrum of my real life beliefs. But, that’s what reading and fantasy is for. Going beyond the everyday, thinking […]

Tension

I decided it was time to at least get some thoughts down as I have had NO traffic for a couple of days!! Anyone who knows me, knows that if it is morning and I am at work, I am eating peanuts and drinking coffee. Not the best breakfast, but it is at least packed […]

Afternoon Delight? or Just a Shower?

The other day after a great workout at the gym my husband and I came home to shower. Now, the house was empty, which rarely happens, however I am not going to say if we took advantage of that fact or not. But after my shower I was drying off I heard Jim laughing out […]

Quiet

I have felt strangely silent. My voice quiet while my mind looks for things to fill it. As I sat with my therapist the other day, talking about recent events, I had the strangest session, I had nothing much to talk about. Searching for things to pull out of me, to dissect and analyze. I […]

Impending Collision

As I talked with my therapist the other day I was reminded how much my past plays a part in my present. So often they come crashing together to form my thoughts and motivate my actions. The person I am now is certainly formed from all of the things I have been through in all […]
