Something Really Big is Happening!

Tracy / February 6, 2020

When we purchased this house, we knew it would be a work in progress, but it gave our growing family lots of space. It has provided us a place to host friends and gatherings, to love on those who feel a little broken, and to watch little ones learn to love trees and butterflies and mud. 🙂 We have made…

Staring Straight at the End of January…

Tracy / January 27, 2020

How is it this month is passing by so quickly? Time has a way of doing that, I think.  The older I grow, the faster time passes. I was strongly encouraged by a friend, at the end of last year, to begin this year with a month of prayer, and that is exactly what I have done. I do pray,…

2020 Purposes

Tracy / January 10, 2020

I sort of hate the word “resolutions”. I’m not sure why, exactly. I think maybe it’s the implication of things I may not finish. I mean, how many of us make resolutions at the beginning of the year to complete some task, only to make it the end of the year disappointed with ourselves because life happened, and we just…

I’m Here.

Tracy / January 9, 2020

It’s been so long. Some days, I think I will stop keeping this little space on the web. Others, I feel as if I have words spilling out- things that are happening, or I want to share. I shared with my children this morning how odd it is to see the calendar saying we are now 9 days into this…

Monday- Today is Sheryl’s memorial service. My thoughts have lingered with her family, and especially her sweet sister who is traveling to Kansas from Alabama. It all seems so surreal. I was just there with her. I can still hear her voice in my head. She is going to be missed. Darby’s Birthday Today is Ms. Darby’s 8th birthday.  …

May 23, 2019

Well, this week flew on past. Monday Monday was my weekly Lyme treatment. Those are pretty quick each week. One more treatment and I can go to every other week. I’m honestly a little nervous about the appointment with the hematologist a week from now to begin the process of figuring out how to deal with chronic anemia. The paperwork…

Sheryl’s Obituary

Sheryl’s obituary ran in the paper this week. I’m thankful to the Lord for the peace He has been so good to give.

The Kansas Trip

I mentioned visiting my friend Sheryl, in my last post. Paul and I had decided before we arrived at her home that we would not stay past 5pm because I knew she would be tired. Of course, when do those plans ever actually work out when you are with a friend?! We did leave a little before dark. We weren’t…

May 22, 2019 I lost a dear friend today.   I’ve requested prayer many times over the last couple of years for one of my longest and best friends. She has battled a cancer for years that doctors told her would take her life in months.   In true Sheryl style, she lived to see her 50th wedding anniversary, the…

So I missed a week. I guess it will take some time to get back into the blogging groove, but for now, here are a few things from last week. We took Emma to the doctor on Monday.   That arm ended up being broken in three places. They want to see her again in a couple of weeks for…

I haven’t done a week in review in a very long time. Paul has been encouraging me to step back into blogging.  I told him I just wasn’t sure I had words anymore. He said, “just start.”  So, here I am.  😀  (Even though it is a week behind, lol.) Monday- “The Monday Reset” For as long as I can…
