Taking a Minute to Regroup

I am doing something a little different this week, bear with me, I think you might like it. I was recently reminded that we all need a minute every now and then… this is apart of mine. My Own Pause Sometimes in my life I find that I need to hit a Pause button andContinue reading “Taking a Minute to Regroup”

Five Minutes

What if someone said “you have five minutes to tell me about ______, about whatever the topic was to be?” You have five minutes to covey your feelings and thoughts. What will you say first? What is your leading point going to be? What will you follow it up with? And how will your closeContinue reading “Five Minutes”

Life Lessons From Kids Who Shoot Bows

I had the privilege of spending part of my weekend in a youth archery event. These events are always interesting to me. There are parents and children from different walks of life gathered from all over the state with one common denominator; a child who shoots archery. There are youth from all age ranges andContinue reading “Life Lessons From Kids Who Shoot Bows”

My life as a Blogger

Such an interesting title for me. First off, blogging is not my life, but it sounded catchy so I went with it. Second off, if you know me, it is kind of amazing that I blog.

Snow and ice always remind me of my youth. For me snow days mean family funContinue reading “Making Snow Days Memories”

How exciting to watch it grow as our seasons change. I am also good with summer grass, although I like itContinue reading “Dormant Seasons”

We live busy lives in a busy world, and yet sometimes we feel completely alone while surrounded by people. I am sorryContinue reading “Lonely, but not Alone”

Forward Momentum

I went for a run today. Ok… maybe not a run… more of a walk. Ok… it was pretty cold so maybe not really even a walk. But, I did go out with the dogs and there was walking involved. And running??? Well, not exactly sure what you would call it, but running works forContinue reading “Forward Momentum”
