12 Years Later…

So, if you’ve read any of my posts you know a bit about my background and my upbringing. It’s not the most smooth transition. My life, like the life of so many others, hasn’t been full of linear events. It’s been like a rollercoaster or like mountain tops. Some events so much more massive and…

The Symphony of Pain

As I try to wrap my mind around my uncle’s second stroke these lyrics are literally helping me keep it all together. It just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done … To hold it together when it feels like it’s all falling from under me.  Believe me, I have done it before, but…

Marriage Fixes Everything

You’re probably laughing to yourself, and thinking, ‘um, no it doesn’t’! Well, you might be right about that, but you might also be kind of wrong about that. Marriage, on it’s own doesn’t fix anything. You can treat your marriage as a contract between two people or you can treat it as a covenant and…

Crying at Work …

It’s safe to say that yesterday was probably one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Everything was falling into place, and I couldn’t ask for more. My husband and I finished couples counseling, and it was wonderful to think that after just four visits we felt our relationship was at the best…

Living on a Loan

I’ve been living my life on a loan ever since I was wee little cells in my mother’s body. Yeah, this story isn’t about finances. Believe me, you don’t want financial advice from me! I’m not great at it! However, I can tell you a bit about living on a loan because I have done…

I Hate this Most About Being Married

My husband and I are NOT the same, but we became one in matrimony. He and I are like combining lemon, and lime, and saying that’s one fruit. Yes, we’re both citrusy BUT I’m a lime, and he is a lemon. Limes are green, and smaller, whereas lemons are yellow and big. Don’t even get…

Conceived out of Wedlock

Unpopular opinion, but children deserve stability. They deserve a home. Coming from someone who had neither I can tell you it makes a world of a difference. That’s why I truly believe in having children in the bound of marriage, and not outside of marriage. There’s a reason why God calls couples who have taken…

Not in This House…

This structure annoys me a lot more than it should. This would work great in an ideal world, but in today’s world, it leaves most households miserable because ego is a thing, and people aren’t perfect. We live in a broken world so let’s not pretend this structure works for all of us. What God…

Catholics are Perfect

Says no one ever. It’s really, what people think we think we’re vs. what is actually true. As a cradle catholic, I remember my husband asking me tons of questions when he was going through RCIA. I was his sponsor so for some reason he thought I had all the answers. Ha, boy was he…
