The Significance of Sea Turtles

I always sit in the front row in class. Perhaps it is my perfectionist tendencies kicking in. Perhaps it is because I get too distracted by the other students when I sit behind them {did she get a haircut? What is he eating? Are they together? He’s falling asleep!}. In any case, my propensity to always sit in the front…

Crumpled Schedule

This damp, and soggy day is the first day of school here at York College. And I cannot help but wish I could take the hand of every anxiety-ridden Freshman here, and give them a bit of comfort. I watch her as she anxiously marches her way across campus. Her new clothes stretch, and pull, and she sighs as the rain begins to…

Words on Becoming Affianced

We hiked up a trail covered in white stones, and past a churning creek. It was a cool day, and I was keeping my eyes peeled for a moose. Warrior Man was distracted. At the top of the trail in a shady hollow, sitting on some monster rocks, beside the raging rapids he said some true, and sweet words–and beside…

Fresh Towels

This summer after  finishing a job I loathed, and gambling for joy by pursuing other part-time jobs that I would love, I have found myself working a smattering of odd, and whimsical jobs that have filled me with peace, and taught me quite a bit. One of the jobs that I have been working, has been cleaning rooms for a…

The Courage to Finish

Lisa-Jo Baker began this week’s  Five Minute Friday with the words: “We tend to think that starting is the hardest part of the story. I think it’s finishing”, and I agree wholeheartedly. This is something I have been mulling over a lot lately. How difficult it is to move on from a stage of your life that you have grown…

{Mostly} Wordless Wednesday

Hey Friends! I am linking up with 5 Minutes For Mom at  www.5minutesformom.com/93321/ww-harrison-hot-springs/ for Wordless Wednesday! Here are some pictures of the WYO Sheridan Rodeo we recently attended. It was fantastically fun-the air was filled with dust stirred up by the horses’ hooves, the clown did stunts between acts, and the bucking broncos were incredibly terrifying {as they should be…

Rest Awhile

It is a warm, and sleepy kind of evening. The thick overhang of clouds has dissipated leaving a simple, hazy summer night. My hair is hanging in wet clumps from my shower, and errant strands drop glistening bits of water next to my old laptop as my fingertips clatter away anxiously across the keyboard. The air conditioner is humming away…

For Your Worried Heart

It was a Saturday night, and I had a babysitting job. I parked my car, and walked up the overgrown path towards the yellow ranch house. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on the door.  I stood there, that evening, my hands aching from tiredness, and my heart greatly overwrought. After a long work week, and making the decision to…
