Happy Memorial Day

Good morning all and Happy Memorial Day!  In honor of those who have served, thank you and God bless you.  If you see a serviceman or woman out and about on this special day, shake their hand and thank them for their service.  It is the very least we can do.  And remember our fallen heroes.  They are the reason that we are free.
"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid.  They have earned our undying gratitude.  America will never forget their sacrifices." -President Harry S. Truman Source

The Girl Cave Office Chair Reveal

Part of me was embarrassed and part of me was super excited.  For the last, maybe two years, I have been searching for the perfect white office chair within our budget.  White, white, white.  "What about this chair?"  "No, it doesn't come in white."  Most chairs you find online that state they are white are actually an ivory color.  And since I am on the cheap frugal side, I don't want to spend $400.00 for a real white leather office chair.  So, when I came home the other day with a black office chair my husband was shocked.  Even more importantly though, the chair was comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and on a huge smokin' sale!!!  What I didn't take into consideration in regards to a white chair is that often times jeans will bleed onto the white leather!  Plus the black makes a nice contrast against my white desk, bookcase, and printer table.Let me introduce to you my new office chair from Staples:  STAPLES BRESSER LUXURA MANAGERS CHAIR Very si…

Mother's Day Weekend

What a nice time we had together with my side of the family for Mother's Day.  On the day of, we also celebrated my Grandmother's birthday, turning 87 years young!  Usually I take a lot of photos to remember events but lately I have been very untrusting of my camera phone so I haven't taken many.  Wow, actually I took two photos this trip and neither of them included any mothers or a birthday girl.  Sad.  I'll have to request some from the fam.
On our trip over to my parent's home (3 hrs away, over the mountains and through the woods) we were first responders to an SUV flip.  As we drove by I took a double take to make sure I saw what I saw.  Yes.  A flipped car and an older gentleman crawling out of the passenger window.  We pulled over and hubby jumped out to help.  A neighbor had heard the accident and called 911 before we got there.  Please people.  Don't swerve to miss hitting a deer, it could cost you your life.  Thankfully the driver was okay with just so…

7 Days of Marriage Wisdom

Somewhere I read that the average first marriage lifespan in the U.S. is roughly 7-8 years.  For second and third marriages, it is even shorter.  And on and on it goes.  Divorce is rampant as we all know and something like 55% of marriages will end in divorce.  Ugh.  There is nothing greater that the enemy would love to divide and conquer like our marriages.
When a patientcomes into the clinic and I learn that they have been married for 30, 40, 50, 60+ years, I always inquire about what they believe makes their marriage last.  The answers are all over the board.  Seriously, some are hilarious and some are kind of sad, sort of antisocial and non-communicative.  Don't you want to enjoy being married?  Don't you want to have fun in your marriage?  Today I wanted to share some quick encouragement I found from Proverbs 31 Ministries.  I love how simple these tips are but more importantly how effective they are!  Enjoy.
