Inspired by this beautiful post in the @localpeanut gallery.
Beneath its branches
A bonsai me
Am I observer
Or the observed
Perhaps I'm the one
Thinking these words
Planted in a wee pot
With the rest of you lot
And since we're all together
With the hate, let us stop...
15 months ago.....I embarked on a new journey without knowing where it would lead. I took a leap of faith and prayed it could be the answer for the change I didn't even know I was needing. If it hadn't been for Jeff encouraging me to go for it, I'm not sure I would be where I am today. I am so very thankful for his unwavering support. He encourages me every day to reach for my goals and dreams. Not everyone is so lucky. Thank you babe. Thank you for trusting in me and offering to help more with the kids and things around the house. Thank you for working so hard at your job and then coming home and helping out, even when I know you're tired and just want to relax. It's because of you and the kids that I'm working so hard....things are different now...a lot different. And in a good way. I love you more every day and am so happy with the life we have built. Our future is bright and I look forward to each new day. Loves ❤️😘
While we had every intention on making it to southern Illinois for the total solar eclipse, we had some issues and stopped just north of Bloomington, Indiana Friday. Transmission somehow went dry.... Spent the night in a furniture store parking lot where Scott was able to flush the transmission on Saturday. #thankgodforgenerators !
Got her back on the road and headed 20 minutes west to McCormick Creek State Park. This place is unbelievably beautiful!!!
Even though Scott was pretty upset on Friday, he was able to get things fixed. We certainly make the best out of bad situations!! #inthistogether#whatanadventureitsbeen#silverlining#everythinghappensforareason#campintheforrest
Well then, this was a nice gift today. Cameron had a positive attitude and great round of 38. He tied for 1st, which resulted in a playoff with another boy. Cameron told me he "had it" and he did. I'm always proud of my boys but this was extra special today⛳️🏌🏼🥇@wilsongolf @thebaezboys @scoutsportsgolf @golfprobelts @uskidsgolffdn
Proud of @gaamayo_official today & even prouder of the supporters today we didn't give in either should have beaten Kerry we much the better team Finish the job next week lads ! 💪🏻💚❤️#inthistogether#bond#mayo
Something that is way more important than bikes. I give a heartfelt thank you to my customers who understand the importance of humanity first thinking. This ranges from understanding my often odd scheduling constraints or in this case a last minute call to arms to fight for what's important. I'm back in Gloucester for the rest of the day today, Monday and Thursday- Aug 20, 21, 24. Reach out, get that bike fixed and most importantly thanks for helping all of us take care of each other. #soapbox#thankful#humanityfirst#inthistogether
So far my birthday has consisted of: waking at 5am to bring outdoor kitty inside (that was soaked from the storm); not going back to sleep because said kitty decided to play; leave the house by 8:45am for a golf tournament; caddy 3 holes for Carson and get a lightning delay; get school supplies from the car and work until further notice; now, off to get Cameron warmed up for his round of nine holes; then return to Carson to finish his 18 holes. .
Then, awards banquet tonight with another golf organization. .
And, finalize my "lesson plan" for tomorrow.
Disguising how they truly feel isn’t deceptive; it’s protective. They don’t want the whole world to see them as being so low down that they can’t even go out to get KFC. It’s really hard to function in a society that demands a constant “doing” when that “doing” does nothing but to serve the purpose of showing how much you dislike your every day. It is important to understand that someone close to you, or even yourself, is deserving of love, acceptance, and care just as much as the next person does. If you have found it difficult to face the light coming in your window every morning, day after day, and don’t really understand the worth that your life holds, it's a shame. I used to not be able to not get out of bed and have breakfast until 5pm daily. Not all understand. Scenario: even my ex girlfriend's friends use to laugh at me about getting up later in the day, as if it was down to "laziness". However, It’s not clearly defined as to what depression looks like, and it may only be a simple malaise. What’s important is to understand that you aren’t as alone as you think, and there are people out there who can help. #inthistogether#depression#anxiety#love#patience#positivity#tryyourbest#mentalhealth#mentalillnessisreal#depressionisreal#anxietyisreal#lesbian#gaylord#loveislove
For all the church planters, pastors, staff, and Serve Team volunteers in our city, our nation and around the world that are setting up church this morning...I'm praying for you. Keep doing what you're doing. #inthistogether
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the works Thy hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then shall I bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"
Me and this handsome fella have begun our new fitness journey! Ok ok let me just give you a quick rundown of our plan!!! It's still kind of being worked out BUT in a nutshell...we are going to cut out BREAD, PASTA, DAIRY, SUGAR (processed sugar), and RED MEAT (some not all). The first week we're gonna be doing mainly cardio to trim up, then the weight training begins! So I'll get into more detail when we have it all locked down 🙌🏻 stoked!! We took our before pictures today too. So you'll see some side by side pics after the process! Woot! Who else has done this with their S/O? I feel like it's so much more rewarding doing it together, am I right? 😁so stay tuned!!
The energy was high at the AKF Breaking the Cycle Event this afternoon.
Thank you to Richard, Trudy and the AKF community for supporting us with this amazing interactive event. Our Krew had a blast and they're on cloud nine.
I am such a proud mama. Wish I could have been there today! ・・・
Cameron finished 3rd overall (132 pts) in @drivechipandputt regional @tpcprestancia He got 2nd (tied for 1st) in putting w/ 65 pts. Made his first 2 putts. Made his first chip in for 25pts, unfortunately it was his last chip for 1 point that was the difference. Unfortunately 2 move onto @tpcsawgrass 😞he cried a lot 😔Congratulations to Braden & Jack who move on in the Boys 10-11. Cameron will get it next year! #thebaezboys#familyfirst @wilsongolf #golf @golfprobelts
