Snow Day

Our first snow of 2017 and it’s supposed to be a crazy one. The weather stations were saying that a storm was coming but wouldn’t start until late tonight and be gone by at least 10am Saturday morning. However, the snow started pouring in at around 1:15pm this afternoon and has not stopped since. This is just showers ahead of the storm. But don’t worry y’all- I’ve got my bread and milk! 😉

Since it looks like I will snowed in tomorrow I plan to organize my bedroom closet. I bought a bunch of white hangers so I can color coordinate. I also bought teal colored hangers so I can do L’s closet, too.

After organizing I will finish reading “In Search of Eden” by Linda Nichols, which is a great read by the way, and have a mug of hot chocolate. What are you reading? What’s next on your to read list?


Let’s Start Over

It has been quite a while since I have posted here on this blog. Life happened and a darkness spread over me. I fell into a deep depression and just could not work myself out of it no matter the amount of medication. I think that was the longest time I’ve been in the dark. My depression comes and goes, and I’m happy to say that right now it has lifted. It’s been about a year since I’ve felt like I wanted to sleep my entire life away. Finally I am having  good days and can get out of bed! I am able to be mom and do mom things. You don’t realize what you really miss until the darkness shuts them out. We take so much for granted. I feel like I loose so much of my life when I am in the darkness.

But God. He decided it was time for my rest to be over. There’s no other explanation for coming out of my depression. Medication could not help me. Sure it would help for about a month and after that it would wear off. If the dosage went higher I felt lower. I just wanted to sleep. I loved my bed and sleep more than anything.

But God got me out! God turned the light on. And for that I am very, very thankful!
