Wordless Wednesday: Pumpkin Liner

Dear Gallbladder

Dear Gallbladder, 

This isn't working out. We've given it a good run, really we have. After all, most relationships don't last almost 28 years. But I can't do this anymore. We were just fine until I got pregnant with Parker, but you started to hurt me then. You stopped after he was born, and I thought maybe...but it all started up again when I got pregnant with Sebastian, and this time, it's just gotten worse. So, I am sorry, but it's time for us to part ways. A part of me will always miss you, but I just can't do it anymore. I'm going back to my life.

Scripture Sunday: Matthew 7:1-5

I had an epiphany tonight. It's an epiphany I've had before, but I guess maybe it hasn't really sunk in. It came to me tonight when we were watching, of all things, the show Sister Wives. (Which I love by the way. This epiphany inspired a blog about the show too.) So, here it is: I am who I am. If you don't like me for that person then I don't need you in my life. It makes sense. It's how more people should live. I think a lot more people would be a lot less stressed out. Besides, the people judging you are being judged in the same fashion as they are judging.

It doesn't work for everything, obviously. There are things you can do that people absolutely shouldn't like you for, and things that very much are your problem, not theirs. For example, a child molester can't say "I am who I am and if you don't like it then eff you." That's a whole other ball game and not what I'm talking about at all. And if I am being a horrible, cruel, witch, I expect people to judge me for that too. But there are so many petty reasons out there that people use to hate each other and use as some justification to judge one another, and I'm getting sick of it.

Every Day Life With My Big Boy!

I love being the mother of a toddler. Not just any toddler. I think he is exceptional, though I suppose I would be considered biased. Still, every day he is doing something new that makes me laugh, warms my heart, and leaves me feeling blessed.

Scripture Sunday: Psalm 127:3-5

I don't have a lot to say about this weeks scripture. Every day as I look at my boys I feel the wonderful comfort of the blessing that is them to me and my husband. This week's Scripture Sunday pretty much echos that blessing.

Scripture Sunday: Mark 8:36

It has been far too long since I have done a Scripture Sunday...over a year I am ashamed to say. It is something I really want to get back into, because it is something near and dear to my heart. God has so blessed me, the least I can do is share His word once a week on my blog. Besides, it is a good opportunity for me to review and reflect on His word and His message. Aw, now I sound all preachy, but it's true none the less. So, here we go again. Please feel free to enjoy and join in if you'd like!


There are lots of things that are "back" right now. We are back in Idaho after an amazing, whirlwind Summer in Ohio. Daddy is back home from Afghanistan, which is thrilling for everyone involved. I am back on the blog too, and certainly hope to be updating more often now that things are getting back to normal. You would think that during a deployment and pregnancy I'd blog more because I'd need the outlet. And I do, but I seemed to blog much less this Summer than I am used to. Ah well. Maybe next time.
