When I was young girl (elementary and middle school age), I wished to be invisible. Like...farealzzz...fantasized about it. I remember daydreaming about how cool it would be to be invisible in a group of people to hear what they were saying, see their facial reactions, and watch them go about their plans not knowing I… Continue reading Invisible
Have you ever prayed for rain? I suppose most all of us have at some point. Certainly farmers have likely done so more than the average citizen. Perhaps I have but couldn't recall as I reflected on the current season in my life. In times of dreary, rain-soaked, shoulders making way for weary, discouraged emotions, it's unlikely that I'd be praying for "more rain".

Guess what? We all have a story...some chapters we'd rather not read out loud...but they still make up our beautifully broken story of courage, strength, rebirth, and worthiness. Own your story and do not let anyone ever use it against you! Growth is the best personal revenge on anyone who is using the past to… Continue reading I survived, ahem…I THRIVED
Y'all, I have some friends...and they just don't know when to shut up! Have any firsthand experience with that? Does the shirt describe you or someone you know? I suppose we all have friends that would admit they have an "open mouth insert foot problem". Guess what? If you ask my friends, they'd probably tell… Continue reading Watch Your Mouth
