Life is about choices….Remove your slippahs OR scrub the floor!

I live in a small house. A very small house. With 5 people. It wasn’t so bad when the kids were little, but now that they are teens, it seems smaller and smaller. When we have company over, we have to eat in shifts. I was discontent with my kitchen for sure….but my sweet husband got a different perspective…and it changed everything.


I had BIG PLANS when I graduated Bible School of amazing things I wanted to do for God. Then I met my husband, and things changed a bit….but we still had BIG PLANS. We also had a 5-year plan – you know? Wait 5 years to have any babies. Anyone else ever have one of those? How did that work for you? Ours, not so much…

focus, daniel-san…always look eye

I grew up in the 80’s. Who remembers it? The time of big hair, Swatch watches, Valley Girl, neon colors…..and the original Karate Kid. Daniel Larusso, Mr. Miyagi, waxing the cars and painting the fence. And focus. “Look eye. Always look eye!” Mr. Miyagi would say that over and over to Daniel. “Focus Daniel-san.” “Always look eye.”
