Counting Joy

Man does it ever feel good to be joyful!  I love being happy and filled with joy. Sometimes I feel like I want to jump for joy.    Have you stopped and let the good things in life excite you lately?   Today has been one joy filled moment after another. Here's my list of things that... 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 →

20 adopted children

This spring I was able to attend an adoption and foster parent conference in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.   It was so great to be in a place where everyone you meet is in the same phase of life as you.  No one blinked when I answered their question of "How many kids do you have?".   There...

Welcoming Presidents and Orphans

Have you seen the commercials for the new show Titan Games featuring Dwayne Johnson?   Looks crazy. When I saw the commercial I thought,  "I am the absolute farthest person from a Titan."   Due to my constant caring for children I don't have time left for strength training! Then I got sick. It hit me like... Continue Reading →

Lonely this Christmas?

David speaks of loneliness in the Psalms.  Lady Antebellum, Justin Beiber and Billy Idol are just a few of the artists who have written songs about feeling alone in the last few decades.  The Beatles sang about all the lonely people way back in 1969.   One of my favorite songs to blast and it helps...

Why Choose a Word of the Year?

I haven't a clue how I started with "word of the year".   I am sure I read something about it and thought it was a good idea.   I'd love to give credit to someone but it has been a few years since I started. The first year I began was in 2016 with the word... Continue Reading →
