The Black Hood

November 27, 2013 It’s the thing that bothers me. The thing that takes my focus off of the beautiful tree outside my window. The birds that gather outside. The sunlight that hits at just the right angle. My ugly black hood that just takes the place of something until we get what we want. But […]

Perspective

November 8, 2013 This week brought some tough thoughts for me. For my family. None of which were life changing, thank goodness, but enough that got me to really, really thinking.

My Plans

September 12, 2013 In case you’re wondering, I won the Mother of the Year award, last night. Cray had a fever after spending two days with Kuy with the same fever, Kuy had just woken up from a five hour nap (yes, you read that right), and supper needed to be made. I won the award for my […]

Words in the form of a Letter

September 9, 2013 I’ve struggled to find the words I needed for today. I went from maybe posting about a pillow I painted to a dresser I painted to a chalkboard I made (super easy, no work required projects) but I just wasn’t in the DIY “mood.” I longed for some profound words and found […]

They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-23 NIV Just because you haven’t seen something doesn’t mean it’s not there.- Epic I was […]
