Friendship....


During this time in my life this is what seems to be lacking big time. And at the same time connections with other women right now is definitely what I need. For mentoring and support, relationships with other women are an important part of our journey.

I am very lacking with friendship in real life. I feel very isolated and alone most of the time even in group settings. I am trying to reach out but there is only so much I can do. I am constantly praying for something to change. For things to be pointed out to me and for someone to come in my life. I hear of so many wonderful things going on around me but yet they are around me and do not include me. It feels as though I am not welcome to them because when I do attend I feel like an outsider looking in and more times than not leave half way through in tears or in tears as I leave and drive home alone.

I am going to give this another go this week. Thursday night. Please pray for me!


"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe
yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility,
gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12

100 Mile Diet Challenge



I have taken the 100 mile diet challenge.

What is the 100 Mile Challenge?

Exactly what it sounds like: you challenge yourself to eat only foods grown, produced and sold within 100 miles of your home. Anywhere from a week to a year... the length of the challenge is up to you.

Why eat local???


  • taste the difference in the food you eat
  • meet the local farmers
  • give back to local economy
  • know what you are eating
  • locally grown produce is fresher

Things are changing...


My husband is starting his school on Monday. (homeschooling if you will). I have to tell you miss mew thinks it is fun that daddy is homeschooling now too. My husband is starting his second career course it took a long time to get it approved but we are now on to a new journey in our lives.

I know he will enjoy learning new things and doing the course online. I have so many thoughts going through my head I am not sure what to write about first.

I will keep this short as I have a few things to get done today while little ones are resting!
