Being an only child has its pluses and minuses. Plus: You learn to play on your own. Minus: You usually hate to share. Plus: You usually have your physical needs met. Minus: You can be (maybe a little 🤣) spoiled/self centered. Plus: You have a strong sense of self. Minus: You can be stubborn/bossy. (And… Continue reading Like Father, Like Daughter
Yesterday I made the move. And it was right after I spent the holiday out of town with dear friends. I had packed everything ahead of time because I didn’t want to be stressed the night before trying to get things together (after my flight got in). I am a great planner and I knew… Continue reading Moving By Faith
These days I find myself looking for a new home. The journey (as always) has been interesting. About a month ago I fell in love with a house. It had all of the stuff I wanted and then some. It checked off my check boxes and created a few new ones. The seller was an… Continue reading Finding Value In The Process
I played with a friend last summer and every time I beat him. Every time. It may seem odd but I realized then that it wasn’t fun winning all the time. I realized it was because I wasn’t being challenged. Not everyone enjoys a challenge but I definitely do.
It will be 3 months this week since I got “the news”. I found myself today thinking about my dwindling time period of locking something in so that I don’t have a gap in pay.

For the uniformed Rosh Hashanah is a Jewish holiday celebrating the beginning… Continue reading Rosh Hashanah 2015
This morning on the drive into work I was reminded by Holy Spirit how important relationship is to Him. He is all about it. That is difficult for me b/c I am all about the formula. Without me realizing it I fall into the formula. A + B = C. It gets tricky b/c the… Continue reading Wednesday Reflection
Yesterday I was talking to my friend who is more like a sister. I have so many of those. Sisters. And I don’t deserve them at all. Women who have stood by me over the years, have loved me unconditionally and taught me what true love is. I’m still learning. But we were talking and… Continue reading A Beautiful Storm
