My word for 2015

So as we start the new year I have been thinking a lot about the word I wish to lead me through the next 365 days.

The word that will represent all my hopes and prayers for 2015.

It isn’t easy finding one word which fits all your plans and ideas.

Still after thinking  hard for a while I am going to go with the word.



2015 is going to be my year of dreams.

This is a big step out of the ordinary for me.

You see I have never really allowed myself to dream.

Broken promises, painful situations and a lot of disappointment made me believe that dreams were for others and not for me.

It was something I accepted as just life.

I could hope but I couldn’t dream.

I was never the girl who dreamed of her wedding day.

Of the children she would have or career she would achieve.

Anxiety and disbelief stole away my dreams.

I cannot get excited for an event or a holiday until I am actually there and as for promises, well maybe we shouldn’t go there.

But this year is going to be different.

I am going to allow myself to dream and I’m going to see my dreams fulfilled.

I am going to dream that I can and will achieve my goals.

I will attend university.

I will move forward with this blog.

I will further my writing career.

I will put myself forward more.

I will look in the mirror and like what i see.

I will believe in me.

2015 you are my year to dream.

Its scary but it’s time.

Fall – Five minute Friday


It’s hard work at times being a Mom.

Watching you journey in this world and trying so hard to protect you.

It was so much easier when you were little. Holding your hands and keeping you safe.

Now you are well on your way to becoming young women.

Wanting to explore further a field.

Wanting your own independence.

I have to stand back a little now.

Like a mother bird watching her chick spread his wings to fly.

I can only watch and pray over you.

I have to trust you to the one that’s loves you so much too.

Trust you to the teaching and truth your father and I gave to you.

Whatever you go though my sweet precious girls remember this.

I am always on your team.

I am always by your side.

Life will be full of twists and turns.

Heart moving movements along with heartbreaks.

Again I promise you this

If you ever fall, I will be there to help you up.

To never forget

I can’t write today, my mind is filled with the memories of eleven years ago when the world watched in horror as the terrorist attack of 9/11 unfolded.

I was glued to the television coverage my heart was breaking, all I could do was pray.

Pray for people’s safety, pray for the brave emergency services, pray for peace.

Today as i remember I have those same prayers, but I also pray for the ones left behind. The ones who lost loved ones, wives who lost their husbands, husbands who lost their wives, mothers who lost sons fathers who lost their daughters, and those sweet innocence children who lost their parents.

A day filled with so much loss, so much pain.

11 years on the world still mourns.

Hearts are still broken.

We remember with love the ones who lost their lives to this evil called terrorism.

And we pray for peace , for tolerance and mercy, and to NEVER witness such devastation again.


We will NEVER forget
