Ebb and Flow

Shew...the last week of October and the first few days of November kicked. my. butt.  My husband was literally gone EVERY WEEKEND starting the end of September all the way through the last weekend in October.  I am proud to say that we all survived, including Mama with lots of Jesus, an insane amount of...

Do you know what makes YOU uniquely YOU?

The big buzz lately has been figuring out your personality type by using tests such as the Enneagram, StrengthsFinder, Myers-Briggs, etc.  I've long been familiar with StrengthsFinder, but have never taken the time to do any of the others.  Well, that all changed this morning.  My husband was gone all this past week for training...
