If I Had 3 Wishes…

If I found an old lamp in the attic and a genie popped out with the promise to grant me three wishes, I would have a really difficult time deciding what to ask for. That’s a lot of pressure! How could a person pass up the opportunity to rid the world of violence? Or starvation? Or TAXES?…

Currently (or: finally out of bed!)

Singing.. I’ve had Tessa Violet’s Bird Song stuck in my head since she posted the video on YouTube two weeks ago. I keep humming and singing and whistling and I just love it so much! It’s my favorite song right now. Organizing.. Josh spent yesterday reorganizing his office to make room for a new piece of equipment.…

High-Fives for Getting Out of Bed

  I made no goals last week. I’m still feeling kinda rough. This week, my only goals are: 1. Be out of bed by the end of the week (preferably in the next couple of days) I know that I don’t have complete control over this, but I would really, really like to earn myself a few high-fives for being a…

Confessions of a Doubter on Easter Sunday

I confess that I regularly struggle with doubts. I confess that I often fall into despair about the state of the world (and the church). I confess that this Easter I’m not feeling spiritual or celebratory in any way. Because of this, when I read the resurrection story today, I was most interested in Mary Magdalene’s…

Shoutouts and See-Saws

Well, we’ve reached another Skill Saturday here on the blog, and the only skill I’ve cultivated this week is that I can unscrew a bottle of nutrition shake with one hand almost every time. BIG week, folks, big week. I was hoping I’d wake up this morning with enough energy to help out on Monday’s…

Proof 

   I’ve been too busy being stuck in bed to take any pictures this week so here’s a selfie to prove I am alive. That’s all for today; I’ll be back tomorrow. 

3 Apps I Love

Fighting the Blues

Currently, I’m: Wanting.. to stop being sick and get back to normal already. Feeling.. pretty meh, to be honest. I’m fighting it, but I’m just bummed out. Yesterday and today have been the worst days, mentally (even if physically, I can see improvement, THANK GOD). I’m just tired of being sick. I wish Crohn’s disease didn’t exist and…
