How To Stop Pouring From An Empty Cup

How to Stop Pouring from an Empty Cup....  As moms, and even more as single moms, we are constantly giving of ourselves to everyone we seem to encounter. We give to our kids, we give to our family, our friends, our work, but the one person we often do not give to, is ourselves. It was a little over a year ago, that I realized I had to stop, because I could no longer pour ...

Masculine Femininity

Masculine Femininity...I was reading my devotional this morning and it talked about the drive, the doing, the go-go-go that we can easily live with every day.  I am realizing, as I sit here, how different my life is now, than it was a few decades ago. Growing up in the Boston area, I was surrounded by that mentality.  Go. Get. Do. And I took it on like a tight leather glove.  I had a FT ...

Saving Photos From Text Messages

Saving photos from text messages... I know that if you’re anything like me, you are sending and receiving text messages all day long. Within those texts are most likely pictures too. Many of them are disposable, like the pictures of a cat rolling on the floor in seven different poses. Yet there are times that you receive photos that you really do want to keep. Thankfully, all photos in text messages are not automatically saved ...

Good Intentions Gone Bad

Note from Noelle: Tribe, Terese will be sharing more of her story that is not often talked about— mental illness and suicide— my job is to give a VOICE to things that are difficult in a POSITIVE and uplifting way— this post does just that, it is the story of a Mother’s triumph over unexpected circumstances that life dealt her. She is truly a WARRIOR of the highest degree and I hope that you will ...

Some Relationships Need Caution Tape

Sometimes we do not see the signs in relationships that might need caution tape...  We are blinded by the chocolates, the flowers, and the balloons on your birthday… sometimes we can not see around all of the hoopla to see if this relationship is right for you... The caution signs that our friends and family can see but we can not… The making plans and then breaking them last minute…let's have a happy hour on ...

The Guarded Mom

The guarded mom.... Normally I write these and tell you about the song I am listening to and what I am drinking. No music but milk tea. Lots of milk tea. It’s my new favorite thing. There are quotes all over Pinterest about guarded women. I would take it a step further and say I’m a guarded Mom. I realized this a long time ago but this weekend it came front and center. My daughter ...

At first, the idea of limiting myself to 33 items of clothing for 3 months seemed ...

My Car My Life

My car … my life The only thing a rear view mirror is good for is to see what’s behind you.  It doesn’t give you any insight as to what’s around the corner, it gives no enlightenment to the opportunities that lie ahead nor does it give you a sneak peek as to who’s beside you giving you support.  Only what’s behind.  Hence, why it is called rear view. It is best to have your ...

Be A Good Listener

Be a good listener...I was in my office the other day and overheard an interesting conversation... Mary was telling Kim (not their real names) about what her boy friend said to her that hurt her feelings. Kim said that she knew just how she felt because her boy friend had done something similar to her just last week. Kim then went on for a good 15 minutes describing in detail her incident. I'm sure her ...
