I think we should take the quote Make Yourself Proud from Peter W. Smith to heart. It’s the last week of 2014 and I have heard a lot of people complaining about things they have done wrong this year, including inside my own head, but I think we should be proud of our accomplishments, no matter their … [Read more…]

This is the time of year when we look back to reflect and look forward to the future. There’s always big hype at the beginning of a new year surrounding goals, aspirations, transformations. The things that I WILL do throughout the next year to improve my life, my self, my mind and my overall … [Read more…]

    Christmas was just hours ago (or maybe you haven’t had your celebration of choice, yet) but it’s the end of the year and a lot of us like to use this time to think about the progress made over the year and the progress we want to make in the upcoming year. I know that this final … [Read more…]

My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night.  It brings me to tears every single time we sing it at church.  Today, I explained why it brings me to tears…because it makes me think of me as their mother and they as my children…..and more.  It is simply beautiful What does that have to do with the … [Read more…]

I don’t know about you, but it’s that time of the holiday rush where I don’t have an extra minute in the day. I keep wishing there was some way to get an extra day or two in before Christmas. I am swamped to put it mildly. But…as I have worked my little fingers to the bone trying to finish … [Read more…]

  I just finished taking my NOW ELEVEN YEAR OLD son to the doctor! He’s been sick since Tuesday and now I’m sick, too! and he’s not typically one to be down for very long! He has the “crud” that is going around! He was tested for both flu viruses and for strep! I’m thankful that he doesn’t … [Read more…]

  I’ve been lucky to be around the Sisterhood for a while now and one thing I’ve learned is that time and time again our readers come through for us in many ways. We all know we have a brand spanking new year coming up on us fast and what a shot in the arm that tends to give us. We also … [Read more…]

Have you ever been so in awe of something that you really didn’t know how to describe it? Something that had you so struck by the wonder of it because it made you so unbelievably happy. This is the feeling that I have had all week. I am struck by the wonder of turning 60 years old. First, I … [Read more…]

  Over the past few weeks I have felt beyond stressed. While I was talking with my husband about some things he told me that my priorities are all out of whack. I want to deny it, but in reality I know he’s right. There, I said it!! I hope he reads this post so he can see that I actually … [Read more…]

  We are already a week into our new holiday wellness challenge! We’ve passed one of the biggest hurdles… Thanksgiving! Did you stay in control of your eating, or did you end up feeling like a stuffed turkey? Did you stop at one small piece of pumpkin pie or did you finish the whole … [Read more…]

The last thing that I wanted to do right now was write a post. I just remembered that I had one due. My heart wasn’t in it. My family lost a dear, dear friend today. My heart is broken. I sat and tried to think of something, anything that I could write about. It’s Thanksgiving. How could I … [Read more…]

The holidays are a notoriously hard time to maintain your weight, much less even dream of losing weight. But you know what? With a lot of determination, some good old-fashioned support from your cheering section here at the Sisterhood, and the right tools, you CAN do it. Today is the day! Our Get … [Read more…]

HELP!!!! I have fallen off the healthy eating wagon and I am having a terrible time climbing back on. I was doing T25 and doing really well. I got up at 5:10 every morning to workout. I was planning meals and buying good food at the grocery store. Then…things kind of fell apart. Life got … [Read more…]

I may have told you before about how I have reconnected with many of my classmates from the CHS Class of 73. It has been a wonderful time in my life. We are all so accepting now. We are no longer the cute girls, the jocks, the nerds or the popular ones. We are all on the same playing field and I … [Read more…]

I have a confession to make. I am not as clean and organized as I may appear to be. Oh, I want to be both of those things but, I am not.  I collect papers and books and receipts and stuff.  I take my kids’ school papers to file away but don’t actually file them away.  I stack magazines to read … [Read more…]
