  • We’ve all seen and heard those verses hundreds of times. They are read at weddings, funerals, Valentine’s Day, and any other time someone needs to be reminded of what real love looks like. We’ve heard the words so many times that even though many of us can recite them by heart, the meaning sometimes gets blurred in our minds. But, the words began to sink into my brain before I could scroll past them. And, as I read them for the umpteenth time, I felt a voice say, “But, is this how you treat Me?”

  • When I arrived home late one evening after attending a ladies’ event at church, I heard both of my babies wailing. Dropping my purse, I ran up to their bedrooms in a panic. The poor little dears had been crying for quite some time! They were red-faced, hot, and mad. I immediately picked them up, soothed them with pacifiers and stuffed animals, then had them back to sleep in minutes. Back downstairs, I found my husband on the couch. I shook him out of a deep sleep and he sat up, startled, asking, “What? What’s wrong?”

  • I sat on the bleachers and sighed. As I watched my little one participate happily in his special activity, I couldn’t help but overhear the other mothers. One was talking about her family’s annual vacations to both Hawaii and Mexico. Another was lamenting over her difficulty in finding a full-time nanny suitable for her kids. The third was talking about her daughter’s activity schedule – sports and gymnastics and dance class and preschool.

  • Having arrived early for her basketball game, she chose to sit in the warm car for a bit and we chatted. I thought to myself how weary I am of making school runs but how much I will miss our drive-time chats one day. She told me she would never eat another hot dog. “Do you know what’s in those things?”, she asked. She followed that up with “I cannot believe that people still eat at McDonald’s.” I feel as though I’ve climbed the motherhood mountain and reached the pinnacle of my parental achievements. My work here is done. She is good to go!

  • I've been desperately craving Mexican food these days. Like...desperately. To the point where I see a Taco Bell commercial and start to salivate. And that is not even close to the same thing. So the other day, I whipped up a full restaurant-style meal and thought, "Maybe I should share this easy meal with others!" Because, you know, you probably want Mexican food too, right? Thought so.

  • I peeked around the corner. And there on the carpet were splotches of neon green, pink, blue, and orange. My daughter had been painting, and accidentally knocked her paint palette off of the table and face-down onto our light-colored carpet. I sprung into action. I scooped. I blotted. I panicked.

  • We live in a weird world and it seems to be getting weirder every day. The other day I saw an article that topped anything I had seen before. It was introducing a new kind of promise ring for couples. Forget about promise rings serving as a reminder to remain pure. Forget about your old-school gold or platinum wedding bands that symbolize your vows to each other. Toss those old things in the trash because apparently they’re passé.
