Loneliness

bekah General 4 Comments

Loneliness. It plagues all of us, yet it’s an epidemic not commonly discussed in everyday circles. I mean, who has time to be lonely? We are keeping ourselves quite busy, thank you very much!

Marriage

April, we will celebrate our 8th Wedding Anniversary! Eight. It has a nice, even sound to it. It’s not the 5th anniversary, and certainly not a big to-do like 10, but it has a comfortable, in-the-middle-tone to its special place as our eighth year of life together. Eight fits us quite well these days. These days of God’s Best, where …

A couple of weeks ago she started experiencing extreme pain, which temporarily landed her in …

And this weekend has been dotted with simple splurges! Double ice cream scoop with four spoons ~ one spoon for Ty, one for Tanner, one for Bry, and, now that I think of it, I’m pretty sure Ty had one spoon in …

We brought thirty-three Middle School Students from our church, along with some pretty awesome leaders, our boys, and headed up the San Bernardino Mountains to Winter Camp for the weekend. Tanner in the back, asking every 5 seconds, “Are these the mountains? Are we in the mountains yet?” I love Middle School students, the majority itching to spend their parents …

Thanks for all the amazing feedback and excitement regarding my last post about Cindy Lane… it means the world! So many blessings have come about with our new move, that I owe it to God’s BEST, to write Part 2. Remember when I mentioned I’m a ‘Get ‘er done’ kinda gal?
