I had my yearly checkup the other day. They did all the basics…
First I had my blood pressure taken.
Dr. Nicole said: “Is it getting tight?” This, as she was pumping and pumping and pumping the cuff.
Next she said: “Now I need to chseck yow eyes and eaws.”
“Yowr eyes awr good.”
Right ear: “This eaw is doughty.”
Left ear: “This eaw isn’t doughty…but it’s kind of haiwy.”
(To which I said, rather surprised…”WHAT!?!”)
She went on to explain…”Fwom yowr haiw.”
Then it was time to check my heart.
She asked first “Whearw is yow haught?”
Then she listened very intently and proclaimed “Yowr haught is stwong and healthy.”
“Now I need to give yow a sot.”
I pretended to look worried and she said, “Sots let yow be helfy. Sots have medicine.”
Then she checked my temperature and said “Yow mouf is kind of sad.”
Which of course made me smile…
so I gave her a hug.
I love my little daycare 3 yr old Doctor.
She makes me smile.
Ps…Be sure to clean your ears before your next checkup!
I happened upon a Facebook post of one of my friends just now.
I want to thank Sue for sharing it with her family and friends.
As you’ll read in the link below, she and her husband took our town with them on a journey of love, heartbreak, and faith.
Their son Sasha was the gift that God gave us all so that we could see that beauty can shine through even during sadness.
This post was written just over 2 years ago.
It’s definitely my favorite post on faith, and probably the most heartfelt posts that I’ve ever written.

By now, you’ve seen most of my house, all decorated for Christmas…
The bedrooms, dressing room, and bathrooms only get a few touches of Christmas, so they really don’t need their own post.
But the dining room…now the dining room is another story.
For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to put a (faux) Christmas tree in there.
I’ve had the perfect plan.
I’d collected ornaments from Goodwill and garage sales.
I’d picked up a Christmas tree from a friend who had decided to give it away.
But last year, sadly, I was just too sick to get all my decorations up, and that tree stayed in the basement.
But this year…
This year is different.
Without further ado, take a look at my dining room Christmas. A moment of silence to appreciate the beauty…
I could stand here and look at it all day. Especially from this view…
Today brings us to my Front Porch.
Let me explain, before you see the photos, this is the area where most everything gets put when we don’t know where else to put it.
Well…and it holds all the items that I find that I want to do a project with…that’s where it really gets messy.
So today’s post is real…like really real.
Crazy messy, wildly overflowing, perfectly imperfect real. Read more
Welcome to my kitchen!
Remember when I told you my whole house changes over for Christmas?
Yes, even the kitchen.
There are a couple special pieces in my kitchen…
The “Our Father” sampler that you see is one that my Mom made when she was young. I absolutely love it and had Tim frame it with wood from an old door we found! Read more
