Declining Drinks In Your 30s and Beyond

I would have never thought I would end up writing a post about this, but here it goes: I don’t like to drink alcohol.  Aside from the Sacramental wine at church, I don’t partake on the habit. This doesn’t mean that I’m judging you because you do.  I just hope that you don’t judge me too harshly because I don’t. Over the years, I have had my share of people who were “well intentioned” and wanted to make sure that I “fit in” by constantly pointing out that I don’t have an alcoholic beverage in my hand.  Of course these same...

Slow To Anger

Slow To Anger

He who is slow to anger has great understanding, But he who is quick-tempered exalts folly. (Proverbs 14:29 NASB) How often have I done this? How often had I been quick to get angry over something without understanding. Probably more than I would like to admit. But I have done it, as have you. We only need one time to remind us. Maybe it was something we assumed, or thought we knew the whole picture, but there are times that we allowed our emotions to take control and paid the price for it later. Either by apologizing, or by other means, we...

LTML23: Wishing You Well

This week has been a tough week. It’s not the work or things on my never ending todo list, it just so happened to be rough. LittleZ is in the throes of separation anxiety (which is normal) but being a stay at home mom, that means he really never leaves my side. So just doing something simple like taking a shower is emotional for us all. The good news is, I know he will grow out of it. Bad news, I’m just not sure when. Regardless of how rough this week has been, I wanted to share something that made me smile. Both my siblings...

I’ve Got A Secret…Shhhh

I’ve got a secret…a Victoria’s Secret secret! I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that I made the cut for the Victoria secret influensterVox box.  Since I’m writing this post from my phone, please excuse me.  Now on to the box! We have a sports bra, measuring tape, and VXS sports socks.  Sports Bra   First impression: The feel of the bra is amazing. It’s not like the typical sports bra that you buy from the sports store at all.  It has padding in the cup area to hide our...

LTML22: A Sweet Treat

This week, the kids are still under the weather. We’ve gone to the doctor and they have their meds, I’m just waiting until they begin to feel better. I have something awesome planned for them this weekend, so I hope that they will be well enough to go. For this Life Through My Lens Thursday, Mr. C brought home a very special treat from his Mom. I like to call it sticky rice. I’m sure there is a special name for it (a name that I have not let learned nor can I pronounce yet) but I’m working on it! I love his...

Beauty In Opposites

I was sitting down and overheard a conversations that a father was having with his son. His son just had his face painted and was upset because his paint was coming off. He kept touching his face to show his father that indeed the paint was coming off. The father patiently told him if he stopped touching his face then his paint will not come off. The conversation reminded me if the cyclical nature of conversations  we have with children. It also reminded me of the balance of things. Such as the concept of Yin-Yang. Yin and Yang.  ...

LTML21: From The Garden

This week for Life Through My Lens, we stayed close to home. Everyone has been sick (except for me but I’m sure I’m next) so there was no great adventure.  But that’s okay.  I find that I don’t usually have to look far to find something to take a picture of. Since everyone has been under the weather, it was good time to check out some of the flowers that we planted a few weeks ago.  Of course, they looked better when we first got them, but it was my laziness that decided not to capture them sooner....

Discovering Our Purpose

Discovering Our Purpose

Each one of us has a unique gift that He gave us.  Our gifts are not the same, and they are not packaged the same.  Just like us, they are unique and made  just to us. The thing is, there are may times when we don’t realize that we either: 1) don’t know what our purpose is or 2) know what our purpose is, but forget. In our world that is forever changing, it is important that we understand what our true purpose is in this life, and move towards that.     Listen to your heart.   Do you...

LTML-20: Walking Through Chinatown

This week for Life Through My Lens Thursday, I’m sharing a place with you that I always love going to.  Manhattan China Town.   Here are a few pictures that I took while walking with the family.   What really brings this place to life for me, is knowing that not much has changed from the first time I visited this place. Of course now, things are changing tourism has left its mark on the area, and the nearby surrounding area (Little Italy) is getting smaller, as this place is getting bigger.   For me and Mr. C,...

LTML 19: Bright Lights

This week’s photography challenge, I had a hard time “focusing” on what to take.   It’s so weird not completing a LTMLT without Linus, as I now find myself struggling for inspiration. Even though I’m sad to no longer take pictures of Linus, I know that this is going to challenge me further to: Share things that brings me joy, and peace and hopefully allows you the breathe easy for just a moment. Not get too attached to one object or one thing — just like that, it could be gone. Stretch myself in...
