High Functioning Dysfunction

This Mighty article by Amanda Leventhal popped up on my facebook feed today: This is basically my story, too. I vividly remember crying to myself that “I’m not crazy. I’m not crazy. I’m not crazy.” even before I was 13. I carved those words into the bookshelf above my bed to help me stay grounded. [Read More…]

Psalm 33:1

31. Construction going quickly and smoothly on our home. 32. Sunshine. 33. The courage to take all four of my kids to a restaurant all by myself for lunch. 34. For the kids relatively good behavior. 35. For restaurants where you know the owner who is exceptionally cheerful and kind. 36. Chalkboard walls for kids, [Read More…]

Reflections on Therapy Monday

Someone I respect very much said that when you listen to a sermon, the people who hear it are the people who probably don’t need to work on that particular subject, it is the people who don’t hear, or who hope that someone else hears it — those are the people who should be listening [Read More…]

Boundaries on Social Media

Last Monday, I was talking to my therapist about the recent upset caused by my investigative opinion article on gorilla care as a Christian. As someone who rarely follows the news, 1) I had no idea this subject had been so controversial or done to death. This put me in the unfortunate place of speaking to [Read More…]

Psalm 118:28-29

17. A good nights sleep. 18. A fantastic sermon. 19. Good Kokomo mocha. 20. SUNSHINE!! 21. Sleepy 4-year-olds. 22. Pizza. 23. Boots to wear with your sundress because your dog ate all your flip flops.   24. For not caring that the boots don’t match. 25. For my dog, Max. 26. For messy houses, and [Read More…]

Peace

I’m ok. Honestly. I spent all day hanging out with my family, we went to a food truck for lunch. The girls have been begging me to try one since they started watching Food Truck Wars. We went to the hardware store. We came home and I napped and then Ben and I worked outside. [Read More…]

Thinking About Social Media

Today has been rough. My kids got up before 5:30 this morning, so I did, except I went to bed much later, crying. People can be ruthless on the internet. It doesn’t bother me when people who I don’t know take a swing at me, but the people I do know, like really thought I [Read More…]

BOUNDARIES GIVEAWAY!

I love picking titles! So much fun! This morning, I took the boundaries quiz on the Boundaries Book website. I know that I have trouble upholding my personal boundaries. So I took the quiz and…… I got a lousy 4!  A 15-20 would have been ideal. Apparently, I have a lot of work to do! But [Read More…]

Psalm 9:1

For accidentally sleeping through my alarm and it not being a huge inconvenience. For last night’s nightmares not being real. For a working fridge, garbage bags to clean it out and cleaner to wipe it down. That I don’t throw up anymore when I clean the fridge. #HGaware For brooms that sweep the crumbs away. [Read More…]

Trump Supports the Murder of Harambe

“If you could choose between bliss in life or bliss in death, which one would you pick?  “If four people are stranded in a snowstorm starving, which person do you kill?”  “If a boy falls into a gorilla habitat, do you save the boy or shoot the gorilla?” To me, the answers to these questions come [Read More…]
