A Lady's Touch

A Lady's Touch

I used to have a blog…before this one. It was years ago. It was called A Lady's Touch (Or A Ladies Touch, I cannot even remember exactly what it was called, if anyone remembers, or has a link, I would love it! lol). It was very different from this one. The whole idea behind it was to share encouragement for wives. I was a pastor's wife at the time, I was always a little ‘risky’ as a pastor's wife. But I had a lot of women who followed my blog, because I gave them tangible ways to bless their husbands....

When Words Don't Come Easily

My 5th born child, 2nd born son, is a hoot. He is very loving and has a zest for life...a lot of us in the house find it annoying how excited he gets over everything. If we are going to town and ask if anyone wants to come, he always does. If we are going for a walk, he wants to come. If we are doing anything at all, he is game. Now, it might just be that he is 8 (I honestly cannot remember what the other kids were like at that age) or it might be that he...

Anyone Else Self Conscious?

Is there anything that you do or not do, even though you "know" in your head, that is it not weird or wrong?  I will give you an example....(please don't judge me! hahaha).

That's it...I was probably 10-12 years old, so I have been covering up my face for yawns for 30 plus years...because 1 person commented on how my nose looked when doing it. Did I bother looking around to see if, indeed, that was a normal way...

Covid Chaos

Everyone reading this knows that we are a small business. Not as small as some, but pretty small. We have been in business for 5 years now....we started because we decided we wanted a different kind of life than a 9-5 job/career gives. We were not out to make a million dollars (but as someone recently said...a million dollars is not what it used to be...lol) we just wanted to grow as a family and get to spend time with each other, watch our kids grow and enjoy the life we have. Our goal was never to expand our business...

I'm Not Proud Of My Daughter For Being Gay

I'm Not Proud Of My Daughter For Being Gay

Here’s the thing about gay pride. We are not proud of our daughter because she is gay. Just like we are not any more proud of her because she has size 8 feet or brown hair…that is a part of her, how she was born...who she is…. What we are proud of is the fact that despite all adversity in today’s world for the LGBTQ community…she had the courage (at 13 none the less) to be her true self and share that part of her, not only with her family (which is a big deal), but also with the world at...
