I Love My Family…BUT

Why is it that he can cook the most fantastic dinner and leave the clean up for me? My husband can cook…he does it effortlessly, which is a HUGE bonus for our family, otherwise we would live on pancakes and cereal. But does every inch of the kitchen have to be covered with something?

How Do You Fill YOUR Cup?

I became a mother. Being a mom forces me to tell others no, as my priorities need to be at home. Conversely, that means I need to take care of myself and fill my cup with what makes me happy. When mama isn’t happy, no one in the house is happy. Like it or not, I am the one who sets the tone for the day and teaches my boys that they have the power to choose their attitudes. I need to take time to refill my energies, my passions.

From Wimpy to Wrap Warrior

If you have a child, know someone who has a child or have seen people who have had a child, you know it can wreak havoc on the body.  Multiple pregnancies can turn a once happy woman into someone unrecognizable.  Don’t get me wrong, I will never regret having my...

Perception is Reality

In life there will be some people who just don’t like you. Doesn’t matter who you are… Doesn’t matter what you’ve done…or NOT done. Doesn’t matter what kind of clothes you wear or job you have. Some people will just not like you. Everyone of us has our own perception...

Hail Damage

You work hard to look healthy and strong.  You can rock any outfit you want to; your dresses cling in all the right places, your work out tanks showcase your guns, and your bike shorts leave nothing to the imagination!  Yes you can rock anything except for those short...

I See You

To the harried mom with two small children.  I see you are tired.  I see you trying to redirect your child from putting everything in your cart.  I see you rolling your eyes while counting to ten.  I see you wanting to ask the cashier to please hurry up so you can...

I'm Sorry

I owe you an apology. I am sorry for my selfishness. I am sorry for not being able to see past myself. You were hurting and I should have been there for you.  I sent words, but I didn't send myself. "I don't do funerals." I don't know one person who enjoys them. I...

Buy the Slide

I have a confession.  I am cheap.  I will save $100 and buy a smaller version of the Refrigerator (I am no longer allowed to choose the appliances in our kitchen, rightly so).  I will go for the lowest premium payment for insurance.  I shop for the least expensive...

Memories

Today's world is so different from the world I grew up in.  At the age of four, I was walking carefree and alone around our city block.  By the time I was ten, my friends and I would walk across town to the mall.  We spent our days outside and went hours without our...

Choose your words wisely

We are defined by the words we associate with ourselves.  I am a mommy.  I melt when my boys say my name, even when it is the 400th time that day.  I don't take this position lightly.  Allow me to address a situation that occurred in our life. Earlier this week, my...

Diet or Lifestyle

I refuse to diet...after all if you look closely at the word, the first three letters are D I E.  In my opinion, diets are a set up for failure.  If your mind works like mine, once you try to restrict something from your life, that is all you will begin to think...

Confessions from a MLM Mom

I wasn't looking to own a multi level marketing business.  I especially had no desire to delve into one like It Works.  I was the epitome of a skeptic, I didn't do sales, and I couldn't see myself being successful.  Imagine my surprise when after praying to God,...
