7 Days of Hope for the Weary Mom Day #7 – When Life Hurts Too Much

In today’s section of Hope for the Weary Mom, Brooke talks about the pain of loss. When life hurts too much, we desperately search for a way out, clawing our way away from the point of pain. Pain, by definition, hurts. It makes us uncomfortable, and changes our perspective. I’ve found that pain, disappointment, and […]

World’s Easiest Fudge Recipe

All right, I admit it.  I’m running around like crazy today….dealing with “things” that need to be done….trying to finish a *few* more last-minute details so I can relax and enjoy the reason for the season: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon […]

Not Just Accessories….

It makes me angry that some states (including my own) have an option to wear a helmet when you’re on a motorcycle.  Yet they’re VERY strict about wearing seat belts (click it or ticket!). My sweet Dad was in a (relatively) minor motorcycle accident this week.  Here is a picture of his helmet after it […]

Beware of Falling…..Ice?

The kiddos and I were relaxing at home after a busy day, when we heard a HUGE crashing noise.  I thought something MAJOR was falling in the other room of our house….until I glanced out the window and saw a ton of ice coming off of our roof. Here is the result…. ….boy, am I […]

Snow, Snow, and MORE Snow!

This is probably one of the craziest winters that we’ve had…..ever! We live in CT. We’re used to getting fairly big snow storms, but not one on top of another like we’ve been getting this year. I heard on the weather station that in the month of January we had more snow than we normally […]

Wordless Wednesday: Snowed In!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Again, my apologies for not posting a lot lately. I’m working on setting up/maintaining other people’s blogs right now and just don’t seem to have time for my own! Ahhh well, I’m having fun! Ya know, I kept telling myself that things would settle down after Christmas, but that doesn’t seem to […]

Christmas Blessings!

Merry Christmas!  I cannot believe it is here already – boy, did these last few weeks (and months!) pass in a blur! I hope you were able to get some rest last night.  I think I had somewhere between 3 & 4 hours of sleep….all for a good cause, though!  (stayed up too late wrapping […]

Do You Have Blog Envy?

You know what I’m talking about. You hop around the internet landing on other awesome blogs, and you think “why can’t mine be that {insert adjective here}”. I’m totally feeling it right now. Aside from the commandment instructing us not to envy our (blogosphere) neighbors, kicking yourself for not having a blog “just like theirs” […]

Making Time for a Little iFellowship

I love blog hops! It’s so neat to be able to meet other bloggers with similar interests. If you’re stopping by from iFellowship, welcome! If you leave me a comment I’ll be sure to stop by your blog as well. So…..I have a little confession to make. I’m going to be lazy here. I just […]
