Every time. Every single time. Perhaps because they're beautiful, meaningful, perfect. Or because they speak to my heart. Maybe because they draw out a deliciously aching, perfectly wistful, sweetly nostalgic feeling of longing. Or because they explode with joy and triumph and make me want to dance. Because of this, and this, and this, it's impossible for me to listen just once... I am greedy, I want more, and so I must go back for seconds.
Blogging daily is not just a test of endurance; it's also an opportunity to learn a lot about yourself: How you write, what your blog means to you, and where you should focus. We're celebrating the close of National Blog Posting Month with some inspiring quotes by bloggers who took the challenge -- you might be surprised by what they learned.
As Christmas nears, I consider those who can't even think of "less" in their lives because there's nothing left for less. I try not to think about these people or their stories because they're too depressing, but I'm a nurse and have to take care of them, so there's no way around it....more
Until October 22, 2013, my focus had narrowed to include less and less and less until it was solely on my heart. Anxiety and panic have plagued me my whole life. I remember hating to go to bed as a child because I knew my nightly fate was to lie there, hearing and feeling my heart pounding.

It's not like I can just open the hives and look because it is just too dang cold out there. Even if I could, what could I do for them now? ...more
My husband proposed to me with the most simple, modest diamond. It was definitely not the stunner I was hoping for (or foolishly even expecting), but there was no way that I would ever have said no to that one question that would change both of our lives forever. Even though, in my egotistic pride, I have since made fun of him for that tiny diamond (since I knew he could have afforded a bigger one) - I still would never trade it - even if given the chance now....more
It's no secret that I'm a devoted reader and unapologetic book geek. A day without at least a little time to curl up with a good book seems gray and somehow empty. It's been that way since I was old enough to hold up a book on my own and sound out the words on the page....more
I missed yesterday's blog challenge because I got super busy with work and Christmas Shopping, but I really really really love this prompt so I'm going to write about it instead of today's promt.Tell us about a time you took the less traveled path.This is pretty much the story of my life and I know my mom is probably rolling her eyes and nodding her head as she reads this. My sister too. ...more
