Typical Meals in my Home

I’m a creature of habit and convenience. I’m a Drive Thru Sue with Purist ideals. This is a typical week’s worth of meals in my home. I don’t like shakes or smoothies and I’m quite conservative with my drinks. I’ll try about 3 shakes or smoothies per year and gag every time. It’s just not my thing. Coffee is though. Hmm coffee. Coffee, chamomile tea, green tea and Good Girl Moonshine are regular drinks.

Confused by my Grief

It’s been 16 and a half years since Mum passed away. I visited my Mum’s grave last week. And as happened in the past I got angry and frustrated. With myself. I don’t believe she is in the grave. Her body is but her soul has crossed from this earth and this time to that of eternity. I don’t see why the burial plot should hold significance for me.

Sharing My Story Without Over-Sharing

I want to share. There are events in my life that have shaped me, touched me and changed my thinking and my beliefs but I often feel stifled in sharing because I don’t know how to do so in a way that tells only my story.I don’t write much about my children because I want them to own their own story.

Keeping In Touch When They've All Left Home

How do you keep up with your adult children? How frequently do you talk to your kids and by what means? Just as my relationship with each child was different when we homeschooled, so it is now that they are adults. And so we have different ways and times with each of them.

I’ve felt like a failure as a mum. Every belief I had about God, man, myself, my husband, my educational and parenting philosophies were challenged. Nowadays I am confident about one thing. I was a good mum. I did my best. I am a good mum and I’m still doing my best.

My Story with Depression

Having naturally been a positive person it was a shock to accept that I was depressed. I thought I was stronger than that. Little did I realise that I was delaying any healing or growth.

God Delights In Us

God delights in us. Our lives don’t have to be full of rigidity, somberness and dull faces. We can live life! And have fun. We are allowed to enjoy life! In fact, He wants us to. He is pleasured when he watches us living and enjoying life within the environment He has provided for us.
