Welcome April

It’s April 1st. We made it to the second quarter of 2018. It’s also Easter and April Fool’s Day what are the odds of that?


Have you set your second quarter goals yet? Have you started to think about your vacation plans or summer camp or college if your children are graduating soon? It can all be overwhelming but I want to encourage you to remember to put God above all plans that you made today and each day going forward. I know that our list of To Do’s can always get long, but we have to stay focused. I’m thankful for each and everyone of you and I pray that you have an amazing second quarter at an amazing Easter!

Happy Resurrection Day!

What a beautiful Easter Sunday in Maryland! I’m going to both church services this morning because the Drama and Music ministries will be doing a program for the second church service.

I’m excited.

My Munch is in Danville, Virginia with his dad’s family. It’s a tradition that I started when he was an infant and one that he will always keep. It’s important for him to have the love of his grandma and her family engulfing him. She’s an amazing woman.

Munch was telling me last week that he was super excited to go and visit his grandma. He saw her last month for her 75th birthday, but he enjoys spending time with her. I smiled. When I asked him was he going to do an Easter egg hunt at his grandma’s house he said “I’m not sure.” “Well, I’m sure that she’ll get you a big Easter basket baby” I said. He said “Mommy, the Easter bunny brings me my Easter basket, not my grandma.”

And just like that I remembered that my son still believes in the magic of the Easter Bunny. I love that. In all the drama from the last week, it warms my soul to know that he still believes in the great things about being a kid. He knows that Easter is more than baskets or colored eggs. He knows that it is about the resurrection of Christ.

He will go to sunrise service at his grandma’s church with his dad. A beautiful church in the country where everyone has watched him grow up year after year. He will go downstairs after church is over for the sunrise breakfast that is a mandatory part of their service. He will eat breakfast and smell the scents of good ole’ country cooking. He will probably just eat the bacon and potatoes. He’s pretty particular.

He will pray and he will remember what this day is all about. I pray that he will hear me whispering “with God all things are possible.” This is not a day of sadness but of happiness because we know that Christ rose. So, on this beautiful Sunday I wish you thoughts of colored eggs, Easter baskets and bunnies, but more importantly I wish you the comfort of knowing that Jesus paid it all.

Coffee Share – 3/27/16

Happy Easter Dear Reader!


If you’re interested in doing the weekend coffee share, just link up at Part-Time Monster’s site with your weekend coffee share posts. It’s a virtual coffee catch up that allows us to tell you what’s happening in our lives. So, what’s been going on with me?

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you how exhausted I am. I attended sunrise service at my church this morning and it was awesome. Church started at 6:00 am and they served breakfast right after. I had a caramel frappe at McDonald’s. It wasn’t hot, but it hit the spot. I starved myself for the rest of the day. Why? Do you know how many calories are in that thing?  I know, I know, but I needed the sweetness to bring me strength. I’m not a morning person.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I miss my Munch. He’s been with his dad since Thursday morning spending time in Danville, Virginia with his Godmother (aka Munch’s grandmother). They go every year and his Godmother is absolutely wonderful and constantly tells me that we’re still family even though we’re divorced. She wants me to come down there and spend some time with her. Munch will then be going to spend time with my mother (his nana) and her other grandchildren at Massanutten beginning tomorrow evening.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you how overwhelmed I am about moving. I still have so much stuff to pack and with Munch’s birthday party at the end of next month I’m feeling stressed. I probably should switch to a calming tea to help me get over this impending move, but I’m a coffee addict. I did pack up a few bags of clothes for my best friend to take to Green drop for me.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I met with a wonderful, psychologist who will be doing my Munch’s psychological assessment. God has truly had his hand in me finding this man and finding someone who senses my angst and desire to help my son. We’ve scheduled it for Monday, April 4th. I’m still working with the original therapist and I’ve been updating him as well.

If you and I were having coffee, I would tell you that I’m truly happy you stopped by to chat. You don’t know how much your visit means to me. I’m constantly in awe of each and every one of you and I couldn’t be happier you chose to stop by and have a cup with me. Have a wonderful weekend my friend!
