Establishing Patterns

In a recent conference I attended given for women of my faith, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Sister Julie B. Beck, the General Relief Society President of my church, came to speak to the women of the Central Texas Area. She had many wonderful things to teach us about how we can […]

I was speaking with a couple of my friends a few weeks ago and we began talking about our bodies. You know how the conversation goes…”you wouldn’t want to see me in a swimsuit”. Those of us who have had children understand what I am talking about. I would describe my physical appearance as something […]

What Happened??

13th March 2011 | 1 Comment

At the end of January my youngest daughter had her sixth birthday and she lost her first tooth the day before. I cried. I cried! I guess it didn’t strike me until that moment that my little baby girl is really growing up. I SO loved being a mother to that no longer tiny girl. […]

Learning Leadership

13th July 2010 | 2 Comments

Sometimes as a mom I feel like I am being led around by my day, moving from one thing to the next, putting out fires. I have a feeling of being behind or unproductive. Sometimes at the end of the day I am not able to come up with one thing that I did that […]

Quarreling Quandaries

1st May 2010 | 2 Comments

I have been noting that my dear children seem to be quarreling and fighting a lot lately. I am unsure if it is because of budding hormones, or what. Nevertheless, they have been fighting, arguing and generally making life unpleasant for each other. When there is disharmony in my home I tend to begin to […]

Last night my husband showed me how to view the statistics on my site and I discovered that there are quite a few people reading my blog. Wow! Thank you for reading even though my writings are few and far between. If you have never commented on my site before, here is your chance! Please […]

Slowly But Surely!

I am back, well sort of anyway. I am now completely healed as far as the x-rays show, but walking is a totally different story. Recovery is a difficult part of any accident. Rehabilition is difficult as well. I am having to learn to walk again. Ouch! I am happy that I can get around […]

Let Them Pick the Flowers

25th April 2006 | 1 Comment

A few days ago a memory was recalled to my mind of a time when I was younger and still living at home. One bright spring morning my little brother (who was probably about five at the time) came walking into the house as proud as could be. You see he had brought in a […]

Time Flies!

I can’t believe that today is the last day of February. This month has gone by so quickly. I am sure that part of the reason the month felt this way is because we completely re-arranged our basement. On the subject of flying time, I noticed that as I was busy working to get things […]

Do I Make A Difference?

22nd November 2005 | 0 Comments

Have you ever felt that you weren’t making a difference in your home? Have you ever felt that no one really cares what you do? Have you ever felt unappreciated as a mother? I know I have. I think these are common feelings among mothers. I had a dear friend once tell me that I […]
