Mother’s Day, what a difference a year makes

As we recently celebrated Mother’s Day I could not help but think about what a difference a year makes.  Last Mother’s Day I was actually at Disney World with my kids which I thought would be a great place to getaway and celebrate life and motherhood.  It was truly magical and we over all had…

On the mountaintop…

Maybe you’ve heard it said, I am living on top of the mountain.  Or that was a mountaintop experience!  I can say that I feel like a big part of my life has been experienced on the mountaintop and I then at times I have lived in the valley.  I truly have been blessed by…

LIVE life with a PURPOSE!

Saturday marks 20 months since my larger than life husband, Todd went home to Heaven.  For those of you new to my blog you can go all the way back to the beginning to get the details and follow my journey to this point.  I love that so many are reading my life, stuggles and…

God is good to me

Well I have officially survived 19 months walking in these new shoes on what has been described as a marathon journey through widowhood.  Not sure what mile marker I am at by now but some days I feel like my heart and emotions are rounding the corner to the finish line and then other days…

LOVE was, LOVE is…

I have to admit that this week leading up to Valentines Day has been a bit difficult!  I once heard it said that Valentines is just “Single Awareness Day”  I could not relate then but have to admit I felt a little sorry for those who did not have “someone.”  SO here I am very…

HIS presence is ENOUGH!!!

As I have been studying Genesis in BSF this past several months so much of it has been a great encouragement and a constant reminder of Gods provision.  I am reminded that just as He provided for Abraham and was faithful to His word and promises, He is the same loving, promise keeping God to…

Quality not Quantity

I don’t know about you but as a parent I am continually feeling guilty that I don’t spend enough time with my kids.  YES I am with them everyday, cooking for them,  getting them to and from school, different activities and sports so yes there is time spent and conversation to be had, we even…

A new perspective, changed for good!

It has been 6 weeks since my last post and what a full 6 weeks it is has been!  SO bear with me while I recap what’s being going on! First of all we celebrated Thanksgiving, our second one without our beloved Todd.  We actually spent it with his mother in the house he grew…

TIME does HEAL!!

I remember when I was a kid time seemed to stand still and my Dad once told me, “Oh just wait until you get older it will fly by!”  Boy was he right!  As I have gotten older time seems to fly by although I will say that the first days and months after Todd’s…
