Behind the Medicine

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

Smoke and Mirrors

How many times do you meet someone and wonder how they have it all together?  Or how many times have you found yourself envious of what someone else has?  We have all done it, so it’s okay.  No lying needed.  No cover up required.  Doesn’t mean it happens all the time.  It is a moment in passing, especially if you are working on your walk with our Lord.

Really?

Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Check Yourself

Mom and dad met.  I was born.  I had children.  I am married.  None of this I did on my own, and neither did you.  We are each guided by either God or the Enemy.  Seriously, take a look at the dumb stuff you have done.  We all have.  But God planned our existence.  He knows what plan he has for us.  There is a point where we have to decide which way we are going to choose.

Righteous Entitlement

There are just some things that make me really angry.  There are some things that I have had to learn are not worth being angry over.  It does nothing but upset myself, send my anxiety through the roof, and once that starts it is difficult not to let it overflow in to the rest of my day.  And then other people can feel it permeating off of me.  That is not what I want.  And frankly, neither does God. Continue reading

Overcoming Society

I remember going through some things in my childhood and teenage years that completely had me NOT loving myself.  Any path I had to God was not directed daily in my life.  I don’t know what His plan is for me, but He has helped me overcome so many things even before I had faith.  That is love.  Society has a different outlook on what love should look like, and many times I don’t feel it is in line with what God says about us.

Glorious in Panic Mode

Squirrels could be a distant cousin from the ostrich.  At least in my world.  Okay probably not but it sounds good and I am going with it.  They can both hide their heads from the world when they feel like it.  Something people with spur of the moment anxiety cannot do.  Even though we want to.  And it’s better than biting someone right?   I just don’t feel like trying to get all the dirt out of my hair.  Selfish me, I know.
