The Greatest Opportunity Comes in Inconvenience…

Since moving, I have been trying to get into my new routine.  Each morning, I start my day with going to the near by park for a walk.  Needless to say, that is after I sit and have a few cups of coffee!  Today was one of those days that I had a lot on my list to do and didn’t need to waste any time.  So I headed out earlier than usual for my walk.

Letter to my Readers…

Dear Friends,

I know, it has been a long time since I have written to you. Life has been a little challenging-to say the least. I don’t think you have heard…but my husband and I are separated. Yeah, it’s been a rough road. He left me on the first of August, I knew it was coming…I just didn’t think he would follow through with the threat this time.

The Problem with Pain

This past week I went to the dentist to get some major work done on my teeth.  For two weeks prior to going to the dentist…I had such dread and anxiety.  I really do not like the dentist for the simple fact that I always walk away from the office in pain.  I don’t like pain! 

I especially don’t like pain that I knowingly walk into by choice.  I mean, really, who does that?  Continue reading “The Problem with Pain”

Hopeless Mess to Messy Hope!

I wish I could say that my childhood consisted of a great family, where love abounded and life was sweet.  To say it was, would be a lie.  I grew up in a home that was cold, abusive, and riddled with alcohol and drugs.  Needless to say, my childhood was a hopeless mess.
