Update on my New Year Goals

Hmmm… so I am not doing as well as I would hope. I was excited with the new year and I think my expectations were too high for myself. Although I have done well on a few of them, I think the ones I am not doing so well on are the everyday activities I…

Back and Forth

I continue to struggle with what’s going on in my life, with my daughters anxiety skyrocketing and fathers cancer slowly taking over his body- I go back and forth about what to feel worse about; my daughters mental health breakdown or fathers future?! 😥 I try and think “find something positive” I always find the…

More Cancer Found

About a week ago, I posted about my dad having an appointment with the oncologist and yes, more cancer was found in his spine.

Anxiety

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25 This verse has been a prayer for my children, specifically my oldest…
