2015.

I’ve struggled with this post for the last couple days. On Monday, ideas of what I wanted to talk about that have happened this year has came and gone. Sentences started, but never finished. It could go to explain this whole past year. It’s crazy to think that 2015 is over, isn’t it? This has definitely been a year of changes, learning new things, taking risks and believing in myself, my gut feeling and my God. I’ve ...

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 ...

Just a little rambling tonight…

Every since Halloween ended, I’ve been struggling. Struggling with my feelings and my emotions. Holiday’s. Every holiday is different, every holiday is a new learning experience. However, I really don’t know how to feel this holiday season. You see, I don’t remember my first Christmas without my Dad and how different it was. I do remember trying to do everything in my power to make sure my Mom had an amazing Christmas ...

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 ...

Confidence

Here’s to a post that I’ve started and deleted many times before. Here’s to a post that I have no idea where to start, where to begin or what to write. I have many thoughts floating around in my head and have no idea where to begin. This is probably why I’ve started and deleted it. It’s something that I’ve wanted to share and I know people have asked me about it, but sometimes I find that it’s hard ...

Grief

It’s no secret that times have been hard, not just for me but also my family in the past few years. In six years, we have said goodbye to ones dearest to us and they were welcomed by open arms into the arms of Jesus. Grieving is a funny thing, people will tell you how you SHOULD grieve and point out some textbook way of how it “should” be done. There is no way grief should be done. Now, don’t get me wrong.. there are ...
