Sometimes I Cry

Sometimes I Cry

I've tried really hard to write this week.  I've stared at the blank computer screen resting my hands against the keyboard with tears in my eyes.  I've felt so insecure about trying to put my thoughts out here in the open for everyone to read.  So, like any vulnerable person...I held them inside because I wanted [...]

Heartache to Healing

Heartache to Healing

Update:  The My Story Page is no longer password protected.  Thanks - Jana Over the last week, I've corresponded with a number of people regarding a new page on my blog.  It's titled My Story... To be perfectly honest it should be called Our Story because so many people I know can relate.  I wish [...]

Mindful of My Mind (part 2)

Growing up, my mother dealt with depression.  To say that she suffered heartache as a young woman would not do her pain justice.  She lost her mother to cancer at 19, her grandfather to cancer at 20 and her cousin, which was like a brother, drowned tragically when she was 21.  In the midst of this she got married and not [...]

Just Lettin’ My Hair Down

After my last post, which I mulled over forever...

Reality Church

I absolutely love reality television.  It is one of my favorite indulgences.  The more drama...the better.  I guess I kind of enjoy seeing people's "real lives".  It makes me feel like I am not alone in my quirkiness.  If camera's were rolling at my house today, you would have found me in my PJ's until noon, logged onto Facebook while [...]

Shotgun For Sale

I was left home alone.  Let me just clarify something...I HATE being home alone.  So, in an effort to make me feel more secure, Barry showed me how to use a shotgun before he left for the week.  Okay, okay stop laughing!  It wasn't loaded and to be honest, I had no idea where the bullets were.  But, I figured [...]

The Lonely Fall

The Fall of 2006 was a lonely time for me... I ran into the living room a little shocked, but mostly excited.  I had taken three pregnancy tests and all of them came back positive.  It was true, I was going to be a mom...we were going to be parents.  After 4 years of marriage Barry and I desperately wanted [...]
