I agree! I wish I knew more about her.

It is, isn't it? But I think everyone's family history includes some great stories.

May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more. May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door. Happy St. Patrick's Day! This is mostly a repost, slightly updated, but when you can trace your husband's family back to Ireland in just a handful of generations, what else is there to blog about on St. Paddy's...

I agree! That's one of the points they make in the book. First block time for God (your spiritual life) and your family. Also for your physical health. Then you block time for whatever will help you in your business (for real estate, that's lead generation, because you have to be sure you always have clients!) It's easier said than done when you work a 9 to 5 job, or there are huge projects. But that's the ideal, and if you get close to it pretty often, that's good!

I like to think it helps lift the spirits of those who read it. It's also great therapy and helps me remember important moments in my life, so I admit I'm at least partially motivated by pure selfishness!

I agree! Facebook has its drawbacks, but for me they are outweighed by the reconnections I've made and the ability to keep up with friends and family better.

The phrase 'an acceptable time' has been popping up lately on the fringes of my consciousness. There's a Bible verse about "an acceptable time" which refers to salvation, and a Madeleine L'Engle book of that name, which I've been intending to read for years, but still haven't yet. But I finally finished a book that Gary Keller wrote called "The... Continue reading

I'm sorry for the loss of your mom. I know we never quite get over that loss. Here's to hanging on to joy in 2017, no matter what our circumstances!

It's hard at any age, I think, but not impossible, and so worth it! I know you'll do great!

Welcome back! I love your pot-hanging pipe. The whole space looks comfortable but modern.
Thank you, Hilary!

I loved watching you work, Annie! Especially since I had to miss that workshop. I know it's much better in person, but this was really amazing, my precious, talented friend!

Here we are, more than halfway through January already, and I still haven't taken down my Christmas tree, much less shared with you my word for 2017. Tonight, I decided sharing my word was more important than taking down the tree. That can wait until tomorrow. Or heck, next week. (I'd leave it up all year, but then I would... Continue reading

I know you've been pretty busy! :) Yes, I'm really looking forward to that week! It will be here before I know it at the rate this year is already flying by!

That is a really good point! Personally, I enjoy seeing other people's trips, and don't resent their sharing on social media at all, but while I think it would be fun to travel more, I'm actually pretty satisfied and grateful for the little trips I've made, and shouldn't minimize them by calling them boring. Thank you for calling me out on it!

So I'm sitting here sipping champagne, listening to fireworks in the distance, thinking about 2016. There are only a few hours left of it, and while it brought heartache, it also brought many moments of joy. I lost my mom this year, but I was able to spend a lot of time with her... more precious memories to add to... Continue reading
