#write31days | October 20

A week ago I found something I thought I’d lost. Nothing super significant, more than anything just frustrated with myself I’d lost it.  When I found it you would have thought I found something really significant that was lost. In reality, it was just a little thing. But, it was found. Little things. They matter.…

A few weeks ago I was editing a document that included a sentence about asking for help.  The sentence said “I understand that asking for help is not a sign of weakness.” Somewhere over the years the idea of asking for help has become a weakness. I recommended changing that statement to “I understand that asking…

If you’ve read here since day one, or in previous years, it’s about this point in October that I start to think I don’t have anything else to write.  But, we are just a little past the half way point and I still have a few things on my list.  So, I’m going to keep…

Since it’s Wednesday, I thought I’d throw in a “What I Wore Wednesday” post. It’s been a while, there’s a few things on repeat lately, and you can bet I’ll#doitagain and continue to reach for these items. Acrylic earrings.  It’s no secret I love earrings, and these were a random local 19th Street boutique find…

I have gone through many seasons of morning routines; getting up really early or sleeping until the last possible minute. The getting up really early was sometimes because I wanted to, sometimes because of my work hours and sometimes because of commutes. The sleeping until the last minute was because of a season of illness,…

  Today is my Dad’s birthday, and we got to celebrate him this weekend. There’s a lot of lessons I’ve learned from my Dad through the years, but the one that sticks with me the most is courage.  I was pretty much a fearful kid. I didn’t really like trying new things, most of them…

Sunday. Sabbath. Rest. The one thing that seems so hard to find time for, but the one thing we all really need. And then, need to #doitagain regularly. Carving out time to rest looks different for everyone. Taking a walk. Time spent with someone who matters. Creating or crafting. Cooking or baking. Tending a garden…

Happy Saturday! This week was packed, two work events, rodeo meeting, Bible study and I was  glad for a Friday night at home! Of course when there’s a week that feels like there isn’t really spare time, is the week when something unexpected happens that you don’t really have time for. Hello, Wednesday. And, my…

This week is a hard one for me, I’ve lost two besties in October, one October 10, 2006 and another last year, October 15, 2017.  Two things I could do without ever having to #doitagain.  But, we aren’t promised that grief will not come.  In fact, it’s come again recently.  And, it’s still just as…

I’ve always been a believer in checking in on someone when they come to mind repeatedly. Even if I don’t know what may/may not be going on for them, if someone is on my mind “out of the blue” I will reach out. I don’t know if you’ve ever received a call or text from…
