My Husband’s Notebook of the Big & Small of Life

My husband Chris has always said, “We remember the really good and the really bad and forget all the mediocre life stuff.” Because we all tend to forget so much, he wants his kids to look back and reflect, remember, and relive some of the moments that they didn’t think meant much at the time.  Or maybe they were meaningful moments but were soon forgotten because today’s children have so many special times.  Distractions alone probably account for lots of {Read More}

Christa and her family relocated to the coast of Georgia in 2014. Her husband had longed to go “home” to the beach for some time.

We Don’t Have Problems

* Affiliate links included. I was watching a talk show recently when a little boy and his family were invited up on stage. You could tell by the way he walked that something was wrong.  The host asked the mother to explain the boy’s condition. In a voice choked with emotion she said that her son had no skin covering his legs or 70% of his body. (I don’t remember the lengthy name of the disease, but there is no {Read More}

What I Love About Him

“Un” Husband Bashing Can I safely say, we’ve all done it? Sitting around with a group of women listing the things that get on our nerves about our husbands.  I feel like men are guilty of this too, however, we are probably worse because we are known as the “talkers.”  If we aren’t careful, we’ll end up harming someone else’s marriage.  Someone in that group may desperately need to hear uplifting words.
