Taking Stock :: January

Feeling proud of myself for the month of January. Now that the demands on my time have changed, I have been able to stay focused, and therefore be successful at sticking to something. Excited to see it continue!

Looking: forward to the future

Health : focused on getting back into the habit of 
             taking a multivitamin
Playing: Jeopardy on tv with my husband, it is my all

             time favorite, and we believe we are 
             keeping Alzheimers at bay doing so.

Deciding: to jump in slowly and be kind to myself

Blogging: more frequently

Enjoying: time practicing hand lettering

Waiting: for God to do what only He can do

Liking: the many free things you can learn on the

Wondering: why you do all the right things, and it 

                  still doesn't turn out the way you had
Loving: this new season in life

                   with my photography tribe

Following: Dr. Weils supplement plan

Knowing: that God is in control

Pondering : what the purpose of my blog is

Thinking: that we live in the times the Bible speaks of

              and what is wrong will be right

               who my momma heart aches for.  She did 
               an amazing job on this song.

Bible Study : Philippians

Memorizing : The Sermon on the Mount, here is 
                    what I have so far if you might like to 

Matthew 5:1-5 
Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.  And he opened his mouth and taught them saying.
Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.  
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.


  1. I couldn't stop taking stock. Never believe when I say that I quit something. I love to read your stock but I'm worried about that trail part? I really wish you lived next door. I would so be willing to participate in so many of the fun things you do. Love you my friend. I wish I could do that meet up but with DC in March and not having enough vacation days....or money it just can't happen again this year. I have to hope for another gathering in 2017. Love your friend Tracie

  2. I can relate to so many things in this post, but one that stood out is time with your son. I feel that my boy misses out sometimes because of my girl's big personality. He just quietly stands in the shadows. I would love more one on one time with my son. Loved your taking stock. :)
