Just Do It!

We came home from my parents tonight and I told Jon I needed to write. "Just do it," he said. And so I did. I'm so grateful to have a husband who encourages me to write when I need to, even if it means he has to go to bed alone. ❤️❤️ We're still talking…

“But you can pray right?”

What a week it has been! It started Saturday night at Jon's hockey game. I got the message that my dear, 89-year-old Groszmama had had what they thought was a mini stroke. I cried. I always knew she couldn't stay forever but it still hurt. Although she wasn't in an emergency situation, it still seemed…

“Be Still, My Soul”

For those of you that don't know my mother, I need to add some background. She is a woman of exceptional strength. Although Daddy always bugs her about her "muscles" (which she claims aren't half of what he believes them to be), the strength I'm referring to is not physical. In fact, she is often…

The Story of the Chicken Allergy

Dear Friends, This is a story that I still don't (and probably will never) know all of what happened behind the scenes but I want to tell it anyway because it's actually a "God-story". One of the "unique" things I found out about Jon very soon after we started dating, was that he couldn't eat…

The Power of Thought

And one thing this generation is harping on, is positive thought. Yoga, meditation, and a host of other things spring from this. My aim is to balance these things that…

To my Husband of Three Years

I realize that this post is a couple days late. Our anniversary was on Tuesday but even though I didn't write then, I didn't want to skip it all together. So here's the post, two days late. Dear Jon, It's been three years. Three years of marriage and three years of getting to know you,…

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

"I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." (Psalm 139:14) "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye…
