Ready for a ‘Real" Relationship?

So, at yesterday’s sermon, our pastor preached on the importance of being “ready” before you enter a relationship with someone.  No matter how much someone else may want a “real” relationship for you (mom, sister, grandma, all those folks who keep telling you they need some grandbabies) it won’t successfully happen for you until you’re…

Going Nowhere Fast

I have a very defeatist attitude when it comes to myself, and the things that I am capable of doing.  I am able to motivate and encourage the people around me all day long, but for some reason, when it comes to my own aspirations, I always end up paralyzed by the fear that I…

Self Control

Random (trashy)lady in WalMart, please be glad that I make it a point to control my anger, and limit the number of time that I verbally attack strangers. If I didn’t, you may have found yourself being talked to in a way that Im sure you wouldnt have found enjoyable, and/or cursed out, depending on your response. …

Please don’t forget about my giveaway, it ends this Friday!

Just Do it, Before you Change your Mind!

That’s what I said to myself about ten minutes before my bathroom floor looked like this: Looking at it now, especially in this picture, makes me sad.  That damaged relaxed hair used to be beautiful kinks. 🙁  It could have been nice relaxed hair, but a newborn baby really isnt conducive to having time to…

Relationships: The Crazy Cycle

In the last marriage conference that we attended at our church (In 2009, we were unable to attend this year because of arrival and subsequent newness of Izzy she-who-must-not-be-named) we were made familiar with the book “Love&Respect” by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. (It’s a great read, very engaging, unlike a lot of relationship books I’ve tried…
