note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling.

Another Hero (or Heroine...?)

My other hero would have to be my mom.

She has sacrificed so much for us. She has done everything in her power to stay home with us, no matter what the cost. She is beautiful, kind, and loving. I love her so much, and she is truly my example for the kind of woman I want to become. She loves unconditionally, and always has the best words of advice, no matter what's wrong. She listens to God and truly is a follower of him. She has such a way with little kids, and ministers to them like her own. She cooks the best food ever, and she's always there for me. I am so glad God gave her to me, and my dad. Thank you, Mom, for being so amazing, beautiful, and following God's own heart. I love you!

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
