Hello December

I have this haze of sadness circling me and it won’t go away. It’s not just about one thing, I think it’s a mix of many emotions I can’t place at the moment. Hello December. As much as I’ve always thought December was a happy and exciting month, ever since I was little, there wasContinue reading “Hello December”

Thanksgiving Eve

Does anyone get excited as I do over Thanksgiving? As much as I want to say it’s been ruined, when I think about it, that’s not the case. We can all pin bad memories of tragic events to holidays but we can also cherish them for what they are and who is around us now.Continue reading “Thanksgiving Eve”

Why work on me?

Why wouldn’t I work on myself? Working on myself and healing means I become stronger in spirit, in faith and can be more readily available for all the plans God has for me. Why is it so hard for me to find a starting point? I don’t know where to start. I feel like whenContinue reading “Why work on me?”

Psalm 116 on 11/6

I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. Then I called on the name ofContinue reading “Psalm 116 on 11/6”

Brain Dump

It’s probably been about 2 months since I’ve “felt normal.” This physical sickness is so draining. My mental sickness — same. I’m filled with worry and I know I’m just exaggerating my emotions ten fold. Being a follower of God is not easy. He never said it would be. I should have one hundred percentContinue reading “Brain Dump”

How Not To Be Triggered

Easy. Don’t think. At all. Think happy thoughts… What are those anyway? Don’t think about Ikea. Don’t listen to any songs to remind you. Don’t think about where you work, Lord knows how close you are. Shut it all off. Pretend it’s all going to be okay. So how, in some way, find out howContinue reading “How Not To Be Triggered”

Sick.

I’ve been sick for over a month. Seriously. Extreme sinus pressure, sore throat, aching ears and body, fevers occasionally. Always tired, dizzy, and resorting back to nose spray because if I don’t, there is no clearing my passage way. This is miserable. No, it’s not Covid. Tested negative for that. So whatever THIS is, needsContinue reading “Sick.”

Tails From Camp Bow Wow

Do you ever wonder if someone wrote about this awesome conversation or meeting they had with you in their own journal? Well… let me be the one to share a conversation I had with a woman I hope to further get to know. I work at good ol’ Camp Bow Wow. We are a dogContinue reading “Tails From Camp Bow Wow”

Time Well Spent

Let’s start off with a positive. I am in my element. I’ve had my chocolate hazelnut cream coffee with M&Ms creamer — believe me when I say, it pairs well. I’ve been able to get a couple things done and take time with the Lord. It’s a pretty big constant in my life now andContinue reading “Time Well Spent”

I thought so…

What I am thankful for (With Commentary): Eddie Patrick Dexter My Mom’s dogs: Bugsy and Morty My Mom and Dad Coffee Books (Freedom pages) Writing Creativity Coffee Mugs (I just took a sip) Bees (They make the best darn honey. Mhmm, especially in Earl Grey Tea.) Fuzzy Blankets (Talk about comfort and security.) Life GoalsContinue reading “I thought so…”
