It is what it is

The phrase in the picture above. It’s one of my favorites. Coined by my bestie and I to remind ourselves to not worry over things we can’t control. It has carried us through tough things. Even trivial nuisances. I even have a bracelet to commemorate our adoption of the phrase. However, I heard in a [...]

It will all be OK

Just Go With the Flow, Mommy!

The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way? Proverbs 20:24 It's about 7:15 in the morning. I am getting ready to chaperone a field trip, and honestly have already started dreading every minute of it. See, my creature of routine and habit that is Hunter, does not do well [...]
