Disguised Blessings

Yesterday, I talked about my experiences on coping with grief. I’ve had a hard time coping with two deaths in particular: the death of my friend Angie, and the death of my Aunt Doll. After I wrote the post, “The Pain of Losing a Loved One,” I was reminded of the “disguised blessings” that occurred… Read More


The Pain of Losing a Loved One

This weekend will make two years since my Aunt Doll passed away. I know that time heals all wounds, but this one is taking a long time. Aunt Doll babysat me when I was small. I was the flower girl in her wedding. We took countless road trips together to my grandparents’ home. She helped… Read More


The Power of Our Testimony

Life is a journey, filled with all kinds of adventures. Some of them are good, some of them are not so good. But isn’t it great that we have a faithful God that we can run to when times get rough? Isn’t it great to serve a God that can deliver us from any situation… Read More


Along Came a Spider

My husband and I pray for our son every night before he goes to bed. Our son actually looks forward to it. We pray for: 1. protection as he sleeps throughout the night from all hurt harm and danger. 2. our son to play safely if he wakes up before Mommy 3. continued improvement in… Read More


The Banana Wars

First, it was the Battle of the Broccoli. Now, we have graduated to the Banana Wars. My son loves bananas. He would be perfectly fine with eating them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I ate bananas on a regular basis while pregnant with him, so it’s no big wonder that he likes them so much… Read More


Preparing Children for Deployment

My husband and son are pretty close. They have daily rituals together, such as bath time and story time. Weekly rituals include haircuts and lollipops. Father and son bonding time was recently interrupted by a two-week TDY (temporary duty) that my husband had to go on. There really is no way to adequately explain to… Read More


A Day at the Zoo

Another military spouse and I took our kids to the zoo as a play date. It was so much fun! Our kids got a chance to play together and see different animals. We got a chance to build a friendship and have adult company. My son really enjoyed the Aquarium part. He pointed at the… Read More


When Your Child’s Feelings are Hurt

I took my son to the playground this past weekend. It was cool outside, a big change from the 100+ degree weather we’ve had lately. There were many other parents and children at the playground too, taking advantage of the nice weather. My son is very friendly and will often walk up to other children… Read More


Pray For Our Troops

Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier, was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan on July 2nd and is being held hostage. Pfc. Bergdahl’s capture was kept secret for a couple of weeks out of fear that publicity would compromise his safety. The situation came out to the public when the Taliban released a video of… Read More


It’s Better to Give than to Receive

One day, I was outside watering our grass. We hadn’t purchased a sprinkler yet, so I had to do it the old-fashioned way and use a water hose. It was a very warm day and it seemed like the grass was sucking up the water quicker than it would come out of the water hose… Read More
