Left Out

This weekend is Thanksgiving here in Canada. Holidays are hard for many people for many reasons. Most of us find our way to turkey this weekend.   If not turkey, at least to family or friends for gathering and giving thanks. Now imagine you are plucked out of your thanksgiving dinner.   You are taken away by... Continue Reading →

Jezebel-proof your marriage

They are the wolf in sheep's clothing. A "friend" who is secretly plotting against you waiting for the perfect time to attack. A few years ago, I watched a friend's marriage be torn apart by a "friend".   She was using confidential information shared with her to intentionally steal her husband.   In the end she "won"...

I’m so sorry

I'm sorry. I didn't really get it until today. Never have I understood the depth of hatred that some people have. Today I was reading blogs on WordPress and I did something I don't often do and that was search a topic and start reading. I searched teenagers. Mostly because they have been on my...

My new love

2 MEAL MAGIC

Don't worry this article isn't about left overs!   Most of my family refuse to eat leftovers. I haven't written a lot lately as I have truly been very busy.   We took in a 15 year old into our family at the beginning of the summer and for all of you who foster, you know how... Continue Reading →

Finding Peace

This is my view tonight. As I lay here in the pool, the word peace came to mind.  I was overwhelmed by how calm I felt and how peaceful it is.   After 8pm, after the 3 littles are in bed, after the teens are all organized with their evening plans.   Quiet.  Peaceful. Got... Continue Reading →

Summer Clean Challenge

Cleaning? I would rather be at the beach or at least cleaning the pool! I love a clean house and I do need to clean when I'm upset but cleaning isn't usually on the top of my summer fun list.   I'm pretty sure it's not on anyone's summer fun list. The problem is....  ... Continue Reading →
