Choices

Up and down the road!

I have learned the road markers.

Exit 350. Exit 303. Exit 283. Exit 251. Exit 225.

I know exactly how long it should take me to get from point A to point B.

I know where the rest areas are located for my pit stops. 

These are some of the things that February taught me.

After all, I CHOSE to apply for a job in Jacksonville. I CHOSE to accept a job two to three hours away from my family. I CHOSE to keep my family at the forefront of everything I do. 

We all have choices that we are required to make each day. Some are harder than others. For every choice, there are positive considerations but also negative consequences. No one else's situation is quite like yours so do not allow other people to influence your choices. Stand on Proverbs 16:9 which says, "In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps." Only YOU, with God's guidance, can decide what choice is right for YOU. Just know that when you make your choice, you must also be ready to deal with everything that comes along with it.

I drove home after work on a Thursday to make it in time for a cheer leading showcase. I made it!


I flew into Columbus, Georgia on a red eye to make it in time for a gymnastics meet. I made it!

I drove home after work on a Tuesday to surprise my teenager for her birthday dinner. I made it!

My time on the road made my days long but EVERY moment was well worth it.

What are you willing to do for the things that matter most to you?

The summer is upon us and you know what that means.

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....
