Leaving work at work

leaving work at work, stress, pressureThere is value in keeping work at work when leaving for home. I am very fortunate not to take any work home, but what I didn’t realize is that I take the pressure and stress home.

Miracle lady

surviving icuWhen I talk about the “miracle lady” I want you to know that it is all by the grace and goodness of God. All the glory to Him.

It all started a few months ago when I went to the doctor with chest pain and coughing… actually to 3 different doctors in a 4-week period. Continue reading Miracle lady

A little miracle in my everyday life

a little miracle facebook

If you know my history with cars you will understand my reference to my big white car. We had to take our big white car in for repairs. The radiator had a hole in and I had to check the temperature often to make sure it is not overheating when I drive.

I dropped off my husband at the radiator garage and drove back alone in our old green car (not as old as the big white car but still about 17 years old).

As I drove through the city there were cars everywhere… taxis and people walking, definitely not a place I feel safe driving alone. At one traffic light a police man came to me, I opened the window and he told me the car was overheating… and then I saw the red light on the dashboard and the steam coming from the engine!

I had my first time-out and attended a mommy-morning.

I decided to give some more information about my husband.  You can read more about it here.

Mom vs Dad

mom vs dad facebookI have read much books and watch many different dvd’s on the difference between men and women… mom vs dad. One of my favorites is “Laugh your way to a better marriage” by Mark Gungor. The series starts with “A tale of two brains”, and it is so funny. A book I enjoyed a lot is “Men are like waffles women are like spaghetti”, by Bill and Pam Farrel.

I definitely don’t know everything about my husband, but I thought I understood  his thinking pattern after pre-marriage counselling, personality tests and all this dvd’s and books. If you read “My husband, the entertainer” you might understand a bit about the personality gap between us.
