I’m not sure if it’s a blessing, or a curse. Maybe it’s both. I’ll just come straight out and say it. I have an unusually good sense of smell. I hate to brag. But, yes. I’ve got a good sniffer. Case in point, I have called the city gas company on several occasions alertingContinue reading “Assault with a deadly pair of socks.”

3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.
My latte not only tasted delightful, but it looked good too. How accomplished it must have felt to bring joy to my senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch all wrapped in one warm ceramic mug. That is, if a caffeinated beverage can feel accomplished. My remaining sense, my sense of hearing, was also beingContinue reading “3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.”
My turn signal pinged its rhythmic song. I heard it, but wasn’t really listening. I watched the oncoming traffic, and waited for my chance to make a right turn. My thoughts were ringing in my head, playing the harmony to the accompanying noise around me. I was trying to give my thoughts my full attentionContinue reading “Cheers.”
That’s How We Roll.
The grass felt damp and cold under me. The late summer sun was setting and the warm day was giving way to a crisp evening. I wasn’t prepared. My jacket was in car. I guess I’d need to adjust my thinking now that fall was fast approaching. It’s jacket season, Christy. Like it, or not.Continue reading “That’s How We Roll.”
The pictures in my iPhoto library scrolled in front of my eyes like credits rolling on a screen at the end of a movie. Only faster. I was feeling a little uneasy in my stomach. Granted, I could have been getting motion sick from the quick movement (No, really. I’m serious. This happened to me onceContinue reading “Just visiting.”
Math is easier without numbers.
I don’t have a beautiful mind like the guy in the movie by that title who is a brilliant mathematician. In fact, when it comes to math, my mind is anything but beautiful. Equations go into my mind to scoff and mock. “Larry, get a load of this mind! She’ll never get us. We’re safe here!” (Yes, mathContinue reading “Math is easier without numbers.”
When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table. She had been reading a book, and drinking a cup of coffee when she began to collapse. Needless to say, it was aContinue reading “Home Base.”
So, I released my first book this week.
I’ve carried three babies to term and have given birth to each. And as of Tuesday, I feel as if another pregnancy has resulted in the birth of a 14.7 ounce 6 x 9 inch baby book. Mother and baby are doing well, although the three year gestation of this one was a doozy. But she’sContinue reading “So, I released my first book this week.”
All the feels.
There’s this phrase that young and cool people say now-a-days. When someone is feeling really emotional, good or bad, they say they have “all the feels.” Because I am not a cool person (and my young-ness is debatable, at a week shy of 39), I don’t often (ever) use this phrase. I tend to be pretty traditional.Continue reading “All the feels.”
One of those days.
Yesterday, before the sunrise, my oldest child stood in front of his middle school peers and shared his story. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) group meets once a week in the cafeteria before the first bell of the school day. One Wednesday each month they combine with another middle school FCA in town. They join their groupsContinue reading “One of those days.”
