Conflict and Confrontation

Today I find myself avoiding it. I know I've written about this before and just like before, I will face it, eventually. This is my struggle: when there is conflict that means people are unhappy. When people are unhappy, well, it just stresses me out. Yeah I know, life is not always rainbows and butterflies.... Continue Reading →

Dad Has Left The Room!

It has been an eventful week! I flew to Las Vegas last Thursday for my uncle's 90th birthday party and had such a wonderful time! I stayed with my mom and cousin from Thursday through Monday and what a pleasant visit we had. It was so funny that at the party Saturday night, my mom... Continue Reading →

Are You Kidding Me???

I consider myself a pretty mild-mannered, easy-going, good-natured person, but on occasion something will rub me the wrong way and I just become ridiculously ungracious and irritated.

I know, I know...it's about me but deflecting was entertaining for a minute. I use to think I was Superwoman. Well, that's not quite the truth. I didn't... Continue Reading →

Author Unknown There are many things that inspire me and many people. I have learned over the years not to be too impressed with those... Continue Reading →

Annoying…

Last week, my best friend, Lucy, and I decided to start doing aquatic exercises. We've been working out for about an hour to an hour and 10 minutes each day we go. Today Lucy wasn't feeling well so she didn't want to go. For a brief second I thought, "Well, if she's not going to go... Continue Reading →

Where’s the Blessing?

The very first time I gave my testimony of recovery was to my Celebrate Recovery home group sometime in mid 2007. If you have read my story, you know that 2007 was not my best year. There was still so much turmoil going on in my life but I had made huge strides in my recovery... Continue Reading →
