Lazy Lies

I've spent a majority of my life believing I'm lazy, and yet I had a hard time resting today. How does that make any sense? See, I keep 3 of my grandchildren 4 days a week. My other 2 (soon to be 3) grandchildren were here over the weekend as well with my daughter. Sunday, … Continue reading Lazy Lies

Rainbow Platitudes

Not every storm produces a rainbow. Not every rain shower yeilds flowers.  Sometimes it just rains.  Storms come. Floods happen. Rain falls. That's life.  Too often we settle for platitudes when we should acknowledge and accept that crap happened. We can learn and grow, or we can keep passing off Pinterest quotes and out of … Continue reading Rainbow Platitudes

This Too Shall Pass

Recently I was watching Talking with Chris Hardwick (AMC and The Nerdist Podcast) with Michelle Monaghan as the guest.

Oh that … Continue reading Trampoline O’ Success

We Will Cross That Bridge When We Get To It

  Have you ever tried to cross a bridge before you got to it? Wait... don't answer that so quickly. Have you ever tried to live tomorrow today? Nope... don't answer that either. Have you ever tried to finish a project before you started it? Hey... I said to stop answering. See I am asking because I … Continue reading We Will Cross That Bridge When We Get To It

They’re My Stories I’ll Tell Them If I Want to…maybe.

  This quote is kicking my butt. There is so much truth to it, but it is still so difficult to write the words. There are stories to tell, yes, but what will they cost? I've already paid a huge price by just living inside of them, and while I cannot lose some of the same things … Continue reading They’re My Stories I’ll Tell Them If I Want to…maybe.
