Sometimes

Standard

Sometimes, things are just too hard.
Sometimes, I have to remind myself of what I’m fighting for.
Sometimes, those silver linings are blurry.
Sometimes, I feel lost.
Sometimes…

Twenty Randoms

1. I haven’t always had a relationship with God. But now, He & I are BFF.
2. There is no such thing as too much lemon.
3. I have NEVER worn contacts OR fake eyelashes!
4. I’m severely challenged regarding directions. I always figure north is relative to which way I’m facing…😂🙈
5. I don’t like comic books, but I like the movies based off of them.
6. I still find making houses out of big cardboard boxes fun.
7. I can always find a reference to “Harry Potter,” &/or “Jersey Shore.”
8. I have enough socks for a small country.
9. I’ve never had the chicken pox.
10. “Chrisley Knows Best,” ALWAYS cracks me up!
11. I used to be addicted to salt & fruit snacks. Kicked the habits though.
12. I think golf has got to be THE MOST BORING “sport,” ever. EVER.
13. <— My favorite number! I don’t believe in superstitions.
14. Onion rings are the perfect canvas for ketchup.
15. I always need craft materials. I can’t get enough.
16. The fact that I am not “allowed” the even TRY to have children hurts like WHOA even though I try to laugh it off. I’ve never really WANTED children, but not having the option hurts. I should be able to choose.
17. I miss eating spicy hot stuff SO BADLY.
18. I have dozens of tubes of Chapstick.
19. I love candles.
20. Silver linings of procedures…anesthesia. I LOVE being knocked out, honestly. 😂

A Walk to Remember

Standard

This conversation always makes me think of Doug & I.

Jamie Sullivan: “You know what I figured out today?”
Landon Carter: “What?”
Jamie Sullivan: “Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends. Like you were sent to me because I’m sick. To help me through all this. You’re my angel.”

Fur Babes

For those of us who can’t have human children, our four-legged critters ARE our children. I’d do ANYTHING for my fur babes. ❤🐾

Vulnerable Throwback Thursday

Standard

#VULNERABLE #THROWBACK #THURSDAY from 2014
.
My stomach will NEVER be the same after multiple surgeries from chronic ailments requiring the removal of my entire large intestine/colon & rectum.
.
However, I REFUSE to say, “This is what is & I have reasons…so I’ll become complacent.” NOT in this chick’s world. I’m working on making my stomach into the best it can be while dealing with health issues that have no cure.
.
This life is MINE & while these health issues are a part of me, they do NOT define me.
🌟I define them.🌟
