It's evening here in Missouri. I'm sitting here in my house, trying to knit pieces to an afghan, listening to the cats fight, and thinking about my last year. For grins I went and re-read the post I wrote for my 39th birthday. It makes me laugh and laugh. Oh Sarah, you had no idea … Continue reading …and then I turned 40.
something to hold onto
Sometimes I wonder why I still blog. I mean, it is kind of a dying thing. But then I start writing and I remember that sometimes an online journal can be healing. So I think that is where I am today. I don't know what I need to say, but I need to say it. … Continue reading something to hold onto
Today I'm going to tell you all a little story about a key. Honestly, I'd meant to write about it a long time ago, but all the drama involving my eye overshadowed this tale. I probably wouldn't be writing about it now, however, it's been so interesting watching people get up the courage to ask … Continue reading the key
the first cut is the deepest
Hidey Ho, Neighbor! Can anyone name the show? Wowza, that first week of this year was a doozy. Ok, so maybe it wasn't officially the "first" week, but it was the first for me. What even is WORK? This week in a nutshell: I had an eye doctor appointment, I got strep throat, and I … Continue reading the first cut is the deepest
20/20: perfect vision
Recently I heard the line, "know the difference between spectacular and significant." It was said in the context of ourselves. How often do we look at others, in all their spectacular glory, and wish we were different? I don't know about you, but for me, it's a lot. I fail to recognize my own significance … Continue reading 20/20: perfect vision
2019 in review
A very dear friend of mine, Willie, shared this with me after one of my most raw posts this past year. I've kept this as a reminder that I vowed to be real and not fake, no matter the cost. It's special to me. I was almost dreading writing this post. I've done it every … Continue reading 2019 in review
ewwww, david. no.
(from Life.Church) Do any of you have any phrases that you say to yourself just out of habit? I do. It's usually under my breath, and almost always after I've done something dumb or I'm overwhelmed. It is always, "Oh my goodness, Sarah. What in the world." (Not a question, just a statement.) I have … Continue reading ewwww, david. no.
goals, direction, and starting to see light.
Seeing the light arriving Greetings, my friends! And Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a great and relaxing weekend. It has been raining off and on yesterday and today and honestly it's been nice to chill for a hot minute. I did quite a bit of socializing this week and was oh-so-ready for a … Continue reading goals, direction, and starting to see light.
I changed my hair color this week. I needed change. I am obsessed with it. Red! Hello all. I know I've been MIA the last several weeks and I'm sorry for that. Life has been happening. Lots of life has been happening. Real life with hard emotions, big decisions, love, loss, and forging forward. And … Continue reading heartburn.
changing my perspective
Just me...starting to find clarity in the fog There are so many different directions I thought about writing this post. It has been a week of so many different reflections and observations. Which do I pick? Last week I told you all how I was beginning an Elimination Diet this week. Well, I did started … Continue reading changing my perspective
