I wiped my own tears at Chick Fil A tonight. Not because the chicken sandwich was so good, but because I have done what many believe foster parents are never supposed to do...get attached.

I also ugly cried in the parking lot because my 3 year old was running towards to...

This morning as I was getting ready for work I KNEW God was telling me that I would have a child in my home tonight. I felt him saying "Make the guest bed...get those dishes out the sink...don't forget to sweep, etc". I only halfway listened to him and only did a few o...

7 days left!!! I just finished enjoying some lovely dairy free ice cream. I was on the ice cream aisle for a good ten minutes trying to figure out if I wanted to deal with the effects of dairy or take my chances for a "healthier for me" option. 

I am so glad I took...

I am a recovering "yes" person. Generally, if someone asks me to do something for them or attend an event or support a cause, my answer is yes.

I was sore all day today and it made me so happy! I remember joining an expensive group fitness program a few years ago and I was never sore. It was too late to get out of my contract and I felt so frustrated because the workouts were not challenging my body at all....
