The Middle Ages?

      No Comments on The Middle Ages?

I remember when my parents turned 40.  My sister and I put rocking chairs on their birthday cake and gave gave them buttons that said “Middle Age is Marvelous”.   A few years ago I turned 40.  Since I come from a long line of pack rats (we are too organized to be called hoarders) my mother gave one of… Read more »

      No Comments on I am Woman, Hear Me …. Apologize?

So I’m sure you all know that Josh Duggar was in the news again this week.  Just in case you have been living under a rock, he was on the cheaters website Ashley Madison to the tune of $1000 and has admitted to cheating on his perpetually pregnant wife Anna.  And Anna has issued a statement apologizing for this!

Who am I?

      2 Comments on Who am I?

Namastop? Hope not!

      2 Comments on Namastop? Hope not!

Over the years I’ve started so many exercise regimens that I’ve lost count.  Some lasted weeks, sometimes I would stay with it for a few months, but nothing stuck.  Alas, I am living proof that doing something for 90 days is NOT long enough to make it a permanent change in your life. I’ve joined gyms thinking that if I… Read more »

Today I… Read more »

OR, Why this Christian isn’t sad the Duggars got cancelled and why you shouldn’t be either. I am simply astounded on the number of people who are upset by the cancellation of “19 Kids and Counting”.  I do not share this opinion and I’m going to explain why. Please note that all of this information about the Duggars and their… Read more »

We are Family

      No Comments on We are Family

The word “family” gets tossed around very casually these days.  How often have we heard someone referring to their “work family” or their “(insert name of hobby here) family”?  And what does that usually mean?  Just a group of people who you like and/ or spend a lot of time with.  Or, what we used to call “friends”.  To me,… Read more »
