Just when you think you aren’t making a difference…

State of anxiety So... I've been in a state of anxiety ever since this summer when I conceived the idea of a group of people using their God-given gifts (Which sounds silly, but is accurate: they are gifts God gave us after all!) and talents to uplift the lives of others. Then someone challenged me … Continue reading Just when you think you aren’t making a difference…

The conversation of the sick

It goes like this: Zeke: I sick. Me: I sick. Dad: I sick. Wait a couple minutes... Me: I sick. Zeke: I sick. Dad: I sick. Repeat. It is also texted and IM'ed when it hurts too much to talk or if you're in different rooms and can't move. Email also works. Instagram isn't recommended...

I didn’t want to know that

The bro: When I wake up my face hurts. (Understandably as he had surgery a few weeks back. I sympathize.) Me: I'm sorry bro. I woke up last night because my uterus hurts. The bro: (frowns) I didn't want to know that. Me: ... it actually still really hurts. The bro: tmi! TMI!!! He didn't … Continue reading I didn’t want to know that

Trouble

I've been in bed a lot lately so last week I watched the entire Anne of Green Gables series. After successfully persuading a grouchy old lady to her point of view, said old lady tells Anne: Yet man is born unto trouble as the sparks fly upward. Job 5:7 I just love that so much … Continue reading Trouble

The BRIT diet

I've been very sick lately, and as a result, I have been eating extremely mild foods -- been on the clear liquids diet thrice now! The Italian Icee has actually been a great "clear liquid" for me. They're very mild. Apple Juice was even too much. So I've been chowing down on jello, Italian Icees, … Continue reading The BRIT diet

Go Get Them!

Well! It has been a long, hard, fantastic, crazy year for me! I started a new business as an essential oil wellness advocate, a new blog, and my master's program in Entertainment Arts and Engineering (aka video game development) at the University of Utah on the engineering track. I have had three different jobs, two … Continue reading Go Get Them!

Common Man

It's funny how a song can be completely different for you during different parts of your life. Today I dug out old CDs to test my external hard drive. In my digging I came across "COPLAND, The Music of America." I remember when I first got the CD in my black hole of education (aka … Continue reading Common Man

Alcohol and calculus…

My cousin's husband "paged" me on facebook with this: And the message is definitely important. Fellow mathematicians: stay safe this school year! 😉

A Shoe. (Bless You!)

What is your call in life, and what does it have to do with shoes?? I can't tell you the first (that is between you and God), but I can tell you the second: EVERYTHING! 😉 Then again, maybe I can help you with the first in some small way... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2THK5_roipo&feature=youtu.be (Watch A Shoe. (Bless You!) … Continue reading A Shoe. (Bless You!)

The Rain

Conversation at work on Tuesday when it RAINED: J: Man it is raining! R: It's really coming down! Me: I thought it was going to clear up because I saw the sun when I left this morning. J: It wasn't even raining when I left. C: I thought it wasn't going to rain until Tuesday. … Continue reading The Rain
