When Lee came home from being “away”, he moved right into being home and moving on. He told me it was over and we made it so move on. The only trouble was that I had a bucket load of hurt and the impact of his being “away” wasn’t just something I could “move on” […]

This Is The Life

Friday, February 24th, 2017

I think this a lot. This is the life. Having both boys still living at home. Having my husband with us. Being able to pay our bills and give to important ministries. Hearing a little guy chatter all day. Watching a big boy grown into a man. Someday this house will be quiet. I won’t […]

On His Way Home

Friday, February 17th, 2017

My husband should be home in the next couple of hours. Yeah! I shared all the things I love to do for him when he’s on his way home to show him honor–like clean the toilet, have his favorite foods on hand, etc. Well, I have been SICK since Tuesday night. I’m so exhausted and […]

My Friend

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

The other day, my friend said, “I haven’t ever heard you say one bad word about your husband.” That blessed me and made me think how important it is to be careful of our speech. There’s bad I could say when you think of what we’ve gone through but there’s bad that can be said […]

A Marriage Story

Monday, October 10th, 2016

I found this sweet story in a newspaper from 1979. It was folded underneath a game I purchased at the thrift store. I enjoyed looking at the 70s fashion in the ads and the prices in all the ads. There was something about the hostages in Iran and someone saved from a shark attack. Then […]

When He Comes Home

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

When my husband is on his way home there are some things I do for him. We look at our schedule and give him a heads up about things we cannot change. Since he often comes home at short notice, we sometimes have things scheduled we cannot change. We don’t make plans for while he’s […]

Our Get Away

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

We had such a nice time on our get away. I wouldn’t have complained about an extra day but I’m not complaining about the time we had. It was nice to just be “us” and not have to parent the whole time. Don’t get me wrong. I’m so privileged to have these two boys to […]

I Take It Back

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Many years ago, I wrote a  post on here that I can’t seem to find right now. I said that the things we were going through felt like someone had aimed a gun at us and blasted us to  pieces and we were all lying around bleeding. You’ve probably read some of my posts where […]

His Presence

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

My husband got home this morning. He was getting ready to leave to run some errands and he gave me a kiss on the back of the neck (swoon!) All afternoon, I could smell his cologne. Mmmmm…… but it made me think if he wasn’t around, I wouldn’t be sniffing his cologne long after I […]

Not Enough Primer

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

I’m reading a book I found at the Dollar Store called “Does This Church Make Me Look Fat?”  by Rhoda Janzen. It just looked good. It’s been a funny, light read about a girl who grew up Mennonite, left the church, found a Pentecostal boyfriend, and came back to church. Now, I’ll admit there are […]
