What’s a girl to do when life is interupted?

By |October 21st, 2013|Categories: Pondering|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Lately, I have found myself becoming annoyed with delays and obstacles in my schedule. With a to-do list with zero room for error or interruption, there is no question in my mind of why I am annoyed. I have plans and goals and I intend to accomplish them. A schedule that is on the go with new projects and current objectives that beg to be achieved. A family of two active boys and a husband that I am passionate about, [...]

Embracing the Chaos

By |October 15th, 2013|Categories: Pondering|Tags: , , |2 Comments

Life can be unpredictable, full of surprises and sometimes seem out of control or chaotic. I have recognized a pattern in life - when one shoe falls, the other goes with it. If there is one storm that comes through, it seems another one follows on its tail. Chaos seems to invite more chaos. But would you believe me if I told you that there is order in the chaos? Order is there for those who are willing to embrace it. As [...]

A connection to people outside our homes, a connection to our communities, our nation, our world, and our greater purpose. If Andrew Shatte is correct, with the overwhelming availability to stay connected with others - 24/7 through the use of: cell phones, Facebook, email, Twitter, and more…one would think that we [...]

I am mad and fed up. Fed up with the expectation that culture and media impresses on women. Mad that women all over the world doubt their worth because of the way they look or because of the shape of their bodies. How did I arrive on this soap box today? It started with a conversation with a dear friend of mine who is pregnant. She is an amazing and beautiful young women, vibrant and alive with the miracle of [...]

Why Women Won’t Go…

Why women won’t go… It all began when my husband returned from his annual mountain biking trip. During a reunion dinner of storytelling, rehashed crash descriptions and a declaration of lost manhood found after a Heli Drop with bikes and man, one of the husbands asked why we wives wouldn’t take a weekend away for ourselves. Silence rang its loudest bell around the table as we stared at each other grasping for something intelligent to say. We all knew the [...]

Burnt to the Ground ~ The seed of new hope

Sitting on my balcony overlooking the quaint ski village of Beaver Creek I saw something I had never seen before. Clusters of pine cones clinging only to the top of fifty foot evergreens. There didn’t seem to be any cones below the tip top of the trees and that seemed odd to me. Of course, I had never been eye lever with the top of a tree before, but regardless of the reason for my ignorance, I decided to do [...]
