Remaining Grateful

Hello friends! How long has it been? Too long as usual.  I pray everyone had a blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving! I did. I fell deeply in love. I ate, and then ate some more. I slept late. I did no schoolwork what-so-ever (this part, I will regret… maybe). My first nephew was born the day…

Not Okay.

The last time I wrote on my blog was June 24th… it is now Sept. 13th. To say I am disappointed in myself is an understatement. What happened exactly? What kept me away for so long? I guess distractions… and life. Maybe the television too. Eh… So what brings me back? Well, the usual… expressing…

Distractions.

The enemy has a way of trying to keep me from productively living out here! The level of “distractions” I’ve encountered these past few weeks (past few WEEKS, not days, WEEKS!) is ridiculous.

Marriage Life.

Marriage is not “fun”. Honestly, it’s not. Don’t get me wrong… it can be rewarding and beautiful. There are fun times. You will grow and mature in it, if you make the effort to do so. It can be the cause of some of the best moments of your life… but, it is not just a…

Back at it… again.

I have been back and forth about what to do with my blog. I mean, really… does anyone read it? And if so, do they like it? I hadn’t made a new post in like… over a year…WELL over a year. Tonight, I asked my husband (who is an avid blogger) if I should get…
