the power of being nice

the power of being nice

Today was an interesting day. Actually, this afternoon in particular was pretty interesting. Why might you ask? Because I felt like God was leading me to do something, and I did it. This shouldn’t be something interesting and it shouldn’t be a surprise when I actually recognize what God wants me to do. But today, … Continue reading

I always want to be the go-to person that takes care of everyone else and is considered “selfless.” It occurred to me recently that my “selflessness” is really … Continue reading

This weekend has been quite relaxing and has involved spending a lot of time running errands with my family.

Folks, baby fever is in full swing over here, and that baby isn’t even born yet. I get teary thinking about … Continue reading

road trip!

road trip!

Last week, we went to sunny, beautiful, not RIDICULOUSLY HOT, San Diego for a few days with my parents. It was one of the most relaxing (yes, even with a baby) vacations I have ever gone on and it was surprisingly easy to get there and keep Baby J in his routine. I’m not going … Continue reading
