Never Give Up

    What do you do when you feel like giving up? What do you do when you feel like you don’t have any motivation to keep moving on?

To my best friend..

“But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” – Ruth 1:16-17 Hi sister. I say that, because that’s what you are to me. You are no longer a ...

Thanksgiving 2015

Many take today as a time to reflect on the past year, and count their blessings. I’m not going to tell you I’m not going to do the same, but I did debate whether I wanted to write this post this year.I’d be lying if I just said that this year has been one of the hardest, because in reality, the last 6 years have been some of the hardest. While this year was the first year without my Mom and the fifth without my Dad, today ...

Happy Wedding Day, Sarah and Scott!!

I can’t believe that today is finally the day! Today is finally the day where I get to stand next to my best friend while she marries her soul mate. I am honored to be able to call you, Sarah and you, Scott, two of my best friends. You two have been there for me when I couldn’t be there for myself. God surely does always give you the people that you need in your life. This past year has certainly not been the easiest for me, but ...

Rest easy.

Rest in Peace Susan Catherine Kubiak (12/26/53-03/10/15) My mother gave me the greatest gift anyone could ever give me, she believed in me and taught me to believe in myself. She was my greatest supporter, biggest confidant and my best friend. She taught me how to be strong and I will always look up to her. I know she is no longer in pain and she is now able to be with the love of her life. Heaven gained another angel on March 10, 2015. Mom, ...
