My IC caught up with me today. I have had a pretty amazing last two weeks. The flurry of excitement of going and doing has finally taken its toll on my body. I am laid up in my trusty recliner with my furry pal to keep me company while the family is out to church. … Continue reading Just Real Life
My writing prompt for the day is as follows: What is something that I’d like to learn or grow better in? I love it when my kids want to learn something new. My Sweetheart is learning all about Aquaponics. He's made great strides with his planters, rocks, plants, to now he has water flowing with… Continue reading Never Stop..
Depression is real. Chronic Illness is real. Faith in Jesus is real. Joy of my salvation is real. It is hard to smile and share the joy of Christ when you feel like poo. Sadly, that is how many of us feel on any given day. I do have depressed days but do not consider… Continue reading Higher Ground
This post seems fitting as this month is Interstitial Cystitis awareness month. Most folks have never heard of the disease before. It affects mostly women but isn't limited to ladies.

My personal monkey likes to pee all the time. It has a delicate diet and gets cranky when I've been out to long, or if I'm feeling particularly stressed- he does jumping jacks on my bladder.
