Water and Oil

I feel like the rooster in Moana with the coconut on its head running into the rock over and over and over and over again. Rough night tonight as I fall apart wondering why being a stepmom has to be … Continue reading

Don’t have one

Never mind the building corner and the street light. I was taken by the clouds. Can’t really think of what I’d call them except beautiful. Not man made, but God made. A few hours later, not too far away I … Continue reading

Roaming

It’s funny how we get to different places in our life and realize what does and does not matter. How many times have you thought that out loud? How many times have you given that advice to someone else? I’ve … Continue reading

What’s Your Disability?

I hope everyone is ready for Jesus to return.  Cause this world is screwed up!  No one wants to hear the truth, no one wants to be responsible, and everyone wants to blame someone else.  Are you flipping kidding me?  I don’t let my kids say this to people, but SHUT UP ALREADY!

I have not had a moment for a long time.  Even now, it will be short.  But since I have been away, I have had to start and adjust my son’s ADHD medication.  On top of many other obstacles, this is one of the hardest.  Simply because while he and I have support, it’s not from people we see every single day.  In our home.  And I am frustrated beyond belief. I am trying so hard to continue to encourage my son who, if you have a child with any kind of diagnosis along these lines, is not always very easy.  Will he react well or will the world fall apart?  Did he eat what he was supposed to or did he sneak something I won’t find out about for a week?  Should I worry that he wants to spend time alone?  My social butterfly?  Those are just in the first 10 minutes of him returning home from school.  Continue reading
