God Cries Too


After hearing some terrible news today, I have been feeling quite down and depressed.  In my manic state, I went around the house cleaning out drawers and cabinets, anything to get my mind off the feelings of anger, frustration, and sadness.  I came across this poem.  I honestly don’t even remember where I got it …

When Feelings Get Hurt

I have a friend who posted on her blog the other day about some hurtful things were said to her regarding her children.  It got me thinking, and I wanted to get your thoughts as well.   I’ve heard some pretty ignorant remarks concerning my son and his autism.  Most are annoying:  “Wow, I didn’t …

So, as you may or may not know, I’ve been working very hard at night after the kids are in bed to pay down my debt.  It’s been slow and steady, and I’ve begun seeing some real progress.  It’s relaxing, really, to know that my efforts are paying off, and that helps me sleep better …

My Middle of the Night Epiphany


Forgive me for getting a little “religious” on you today, but oh me oh my, I had an epiphany last night.   It wasn’t actually last night.  It was this morning.  Between the lovely hours of 1:00 and 4:00 am.     But then, I’ve never been very good with timing.   Okay, so it …
