What’s on your mind Michelle?

When I open my Facebook account, it asks me, What’s on your mind Michelle?  It’s a standard question, I am not sure how many people actually pay attention to it, but today, I did and today, it made me think.  What IS on my mind today?

It was Christmas morning and it was the largest present that was wrapped with my name on it.  From the shape and depth I had a feeling that it was some sort of clothes beneath the wrapping paper.  As I opened the package, what did my eyes see but a dark blue thing.  At first… Continue reading It’s A Bird… It’s A Plane … It’s A Robe !?!

The Unexpected Gift

The weeks leading up to Christmas I was stressing.  Stressing over this and that and everything in between.  I was stressing about the things that existed and the things that I was making up in my head.  I was stressing about what I had to do and when there was nothing to do.  Stress, stress,… Continue reading The Unexpected Gift
