A Double Rainbow

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Jan 05 2007 - 05:49 PM

My Dad died as a result of brain cancer about 12 years ago.  It was one of the most difficult times of my life that occurred at one of the happiest times in my life.  I was pregnant with my 2nd child when he first got sick and my son was only a few weeks old when my Dad won his battle and went to be with Jesus. Just recently, my Dad's brother was...

God Only Helps Those Who Help Themselves??

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Jan 04 2007 - 06:02 PM

I read a great scripture last night...Exodus 14:14The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. I said it over and over in my head after I turned the lights out.  I asked myself repeatedly..what does that mean to me?What I got was the repeat of a message I've received before..... stay out of God's way! Then, I started really thinking...

Butterbeans and Popsicle Sticks

Posted in Jobs & Career on Fri, Dec 29 2006 - 03:51 PM

Have you ever wondered why certain memories can stay etched in your mind for years, but at the same time you can walk into a room a literally seconds later forget why you did?!  Mysteries of the mind.My Grandmother passed away this past summer and I've been thinking about her alot during this first Christmas season without her.  As I have thought...

God Things

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Dec 27 2006 - 05:04 PM

God Things--that is what my family calls those unexplained things that happen that you know come straight from God.  Usually, you know it right away, but sometimes you realize it later.  I've had lots of God things happen in my life.  I remember on more than one occasion being really short on cash, wondering how I was going to stretch it and have...

Many Ideas--So Little Time

Posted in Jobs & Career on Mon, Dec 18 2006 - 05:44 PM

I've been sitting here for a few moments staring at the screen wondering what to write about.  I have so many things going on in my head and so many things that I want to write about that I cannot sort it all out !  I didn't sleep well last night.  My mind was racing.  I kept sitting up jotting things in my notebook that I keep on my night stand....

Perfection doesn't exist but perfect moments do

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Dec 17 2006 - 04:22 PM

When it comes to me and my actions, I am a perfectionist. I think I have to be the best at everything. A 98 isn't good enough. I want the 100. I am very tolerant of other people. It is like I don't expect them to be perfect only me. I often tell the married women that work for me, that they shouldn't get stressed out, because they just cannot ...

Broken Bones

Posted in Jobs & Career on Wed, Nov 29 2006 - 05:06 PM

This has been a crazy few days.  My 11 year old son broke his collarbone the day before Thanksgiving.  He and his Dad were riding dirt bikes.  He was doing a little "jumping" and had a flat tire, but did not realize it.  When he landed, he lost control and the bike kind of "threw" him over the handle bars.  He said, "I saw ...

Why I am Thankful for Backyard Ball!

Posted in Jobs & Career on Thu, Nov 23 2006 - 07:16 AM

I looked out of the kitchen window and smiled.  There on my lawn the most important event of the day was happening--a serious game of backyard ball! HOme plate was a patch of dirt in the grass--perfect for sliding in and making it look really good.  1st base was a tree stump, 2nd base was an old car mat and 3rd base was one of my good flower pots--...

I had dental surgery yesterday.  No fun!  The pain medicine had me in a rather restless sleep last night, but it turned out to be a good thing as during the night God spoke to me several times.  Earlier in the evening, I had a long conversation with my daughter.  She is discouraged because of her grades and she doesn't feel like she is good at...

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sun, Nov 19 2006 - 09:08 AM

I am a "fixer"--that is probably not even a real word, but in my southern slang it means that I always try to solve whatever problem, conflict or confusion that is at hand and make things right. I am a perfectionist that is hard on myself but not so much on others.  I get discouraged when I cannot "figure" it out.  I'm always...

Working Mothers

Posted in Jobs & Career on Sat, Nov 18 2006 - 03:43 PM

Working Mother. What a joke. We need a better name. I've never known a Mom in my life that didn't work! "Career Mom". That does not do it for me either. I view a career as a long-term committment with an employer--what presents a more long-term committment than motherhood! "Works outside the home"--amusing.  Obviously the...
