Childlessness

Childlessness

Note:  This post was one I wrote several years ago on Facebook. But, was recently asked to post it again where others could share it. I have also posted more recent writings related to infertility here and here.   My prayer always is that my story and my journey be an encouragement to someone who […]

Today I Turn 50 and I Shall Wear Pink

Today I Turn 50 and I Shall Wear Pink

Today I turn 50 and I shall wear pink. Not a frilly pastel reminiscent Of long since abandoned little girl dreams, But a bright, vibrant, glow in the dark Grab life by the horns Neon kind of pink.   Today I turn 50 and I shall not cry To bid farewell to a decade  Where […]

Finding Nemo or Something Like That

Finding Nemo or Something Like That

Jay and I returned from our annual post-graduation/pre-Christmas vacation a couple of weeks ago. Since then, we have been busy with all of the fun hustle and bustle of Christmas and holidays with family and friends.  We were completely nuts to arrive home on Sunday the 22nd, leave for Houston the 23rd, come back the […]

One Facebook Post

One Facebook Post

It was one simple Facebook post. . .  Soon I had multiple “likes,” messages of “Are you okay?” and texts from family saying, “Please call us.” I was a little surprised at the response. I really didn’t plan to alarm my family or make friends wonder what is up. It was a moment of hitting […]

Homemade “Egg McMuffin”

Homemade “Egg McMuffin”

One of my go-to breakfasts after a long run is my version of an Egg McMuffin. You know, those wonderful little egg and Canadian bacon sandwiches you could get at Mickey-D’s if you really wanted to, but why? I like this particular sandwich combination because it is easy to make, relatively healthy, gives me a good […]

Rain, Dark, Coyote and 13.1 Miles

I realize it has been a bit quiet on my blog, but let me just say, the beginning of Fall 2013 has been anything BUT quiet. O.My.Goodness….to say that I have a lot of plates spinning is an understatement!  But, before we get too far down the road, I just had to write about my […]

Review of “A Year of Biblical Womanhood”

Review of “A Year of Biblical Womanhood”

BW Echoes is an encore post that originally appeared on the BWVoices blog. The Bible does not present us with a single model for womanhood and the notion that it contains a sort of one-size-fits–all formula for how to be a woman of faith is a myth (294). This statement struck me when a friend and […]

The Makings of the Perfect Fish Taco!

The Makings of the Perfect Fish Taco!

There are two genres of food for which I never tire: Tex-Mex and Seafood. I can eat either every day of the week and I will find myself in my happy place. Lately, one of my favorite ways to eat fish is in fish tacos. And through the years we have perfected the fish taco […]

What NOT to Wear at Disney!

What NOT to Wear at Disney!

We are Disney fanatics. That is really not news to those who know us. We go to Disney for the weekend on a fairly frequent basis. One of my favorite things to do while in the parks is to “people watch.” Of  all the places on earth, Walt Disney World draws such a vast array […]
