People come in and out of our lives for a reason: to teach us a lesson, or to teach us our worth. Many people look back on past relationships and friendships thinking, “What was I thinking?“. We’ve all been there, at least, once and I’m here to tell you to look back on that time of your life with a silver lining. If it was an extremely difficult place to be, and you’re no longer there, rejoice! If you’re stronger for it, rejoice! If you learned a lesson from it, and know where to go from here, rejoice! If you feel like you wasted your time, but now know your worth, rejoice! If you were friends with someone who made you unhappy, pray for them, and rejoice! You are no longer where you were, and have so much to look forward to. Pray that you are on God’s path for your life and move forward. He wants far greater for you than anything you have conjured up for yourself. Allow Him to lead the way. ❤️




Social media

can be beneficial or detrimental. I am slowly but surely straying away from Facebook and Instagram. I don’t want to be nosy about what others are doing without contacting them directly. I would, much rather, have people ask me to my face than look o Facebook. I’m busy. I read, I craft, I work, and I do my best to help the students I tutor, and teach piano. I love my life and am thankful for all those I can live life with. I’m happy, and that’s all that needs to be said.

It’s just a dog, they say

Several people have “joked” about handling Callie’s diabetes. They say it would be a lot less expensive if something else were done. I won’t mention what they said, because I don’t even want to think about it. That’s why I put quotations around joked. It’s not a joke. She’s a living, breathing life that The Lord placed into my life for companionship. Would “just a dog” wrap her arms around me at night? Would “just a dog” grab me with her front legs and beg me not to go? Would “just a dog” love me no matter what I do, mistakes I make, or where I am in life? No. She’s a special dog and very dear to my heart. She has taught me to grow up, take responsibility for someone other than myself, and love without fail. There have been times that I have felt so down trodden and hopeless, but that sweet face greets me with a smile. She licks me endlessly and says hello with her eyes. This dog is no ordinary dog, she is mine, and I am hers. We have a companionship I have never experienced in my life, and I am so grateful for it. She’s my furry little daughter and I am so glad for that.
