Together We Are Strong!

It’s so uncomfortable when someone tells me, “You are so strong”.  Really, what does that mean? Well, I know it’s a compliment but it just feels so undeserved.

The truth of the matter is I AM NOT STRONG. I can be fearful, weak, fragile, stupid, lonely, angry, and depressed at times. Continue Reading

Honor…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6

The dictionary provides several definitions for the word “Honor”, but the one I am writing about today is: Continue Reading

Letting Go of the Lies

I find it truly mind-boggling how we hold onto the lies from our past. Somehow those lies get deeply embedded in our hearts and we would rather hold on to those than accept the truth about ourselves. It’s more comfortable that way because it’s what we know, I guess. Continue Reading

Oh this sucks!

I will forever be codependent. There is no cure. It is not something I can take a pill for or watch my diet or exercise. The only way to keep it at bay, is to put into practice what I have learned over the years and know that tomorrow will be a better day. Continue Reading

I’m FINE…are you?

My normal and usual response when someone asks, “How are you?” is to respond with, “I’m fine” or often times, “Great!”. Sometimes it’s the truth and sometimes it’s not. When it’s not, you can’t always tell because I have become so good at masking my feeling. (I was going to use the phrase, “I have become so good at deception” but that just sounds so terrible… sooooo… Continue Reading

Your Words Hold No Truth

So I decided to take a little vacation and head to “California’s Country Music Capital”…Bakersfield. Yes, that is what Wikipedia says it is. Hmmm…My friend Julie described it as the “Armpit of California”. I’m leaning more in her direction after my 5 day stay. Continue Reading

Unusual Dream…What does it mean?

I had a dream last night that was just as weird as it could be. I kept waking up and as I drifted back to sleep, the same dream kept coming back. Usually I don’t remember much about my dreams but on a few occasions there are some that have affected me so much that I remember almost every detail. Last night was one of them Continue Reading

Love Is Letting Go

Today was another sad day of letting go of something so dear and precious to me and my children. Another opportunity to do the right thing and another chapter closed. Today my sweet Oreo went to “Doggie Heaven”. Continue Reading

What I Choose Today

My day has been much better today than it has been in a week. I have not cried once, though I did tear up a bit because I have to put one of my dear pets to sleep, but that’s a story for another day. I still did not get much sleep but overall, I do feel better. Continue Reading

Trusting that You will make all things right…

When I first started in my recovery, I had only been a Christian for about 4 years so I was still, as they say, “a baby in Christ”. I knew that if I clung to the promises of scripture, things would work out in the way they should so there was nothing I needed to fear. This was easy enough to do while things were going well and even if things were just a little messy. Continue Reading
