Bella’s Babbles: Friday Edition 4/12/19

Friday is upon us once again.  This week has been peculiar.  It started off, well, crappy, and then blossomed into a pretty marvelous week.  It amazes me how a shift in mindset can change the outcome of a how week, and can make things, well, just better.

Knocked Down and Feeling Out

I sat on the couch today and there was something a little bit different in the air.  A heaviness.  Was it me or was it her?  Was it just the room?  It was a Monday morning, mid-morning, so maybe that was it.

It dawned on me the other day when I got sight of my nakedness when I was climbing into the shower that I am everything that young me feared I would turn out to be.  Pretty frightening actually. Quite the opening sentence, huh.  I can be harsh, especially when I talk about myself and my… Continue reading I’ve Gained More Than Just Weight

Happy last Friday in March!~ It seems like March flew by like a leprechaun riding a rainbow to a magical pot-o-gold perhaps?!?  Although there have been many long days, when I look at the month as a whole, it seems to have been a short month and I am not totally sure how that is… Continue reading Bella’s Babbles: Friday Edition 03/29/2018
