“I don’t regret the things I did wrong. I regret the good things I did for the wrong people.”
I saw this quote on Facebook the other day. It made me so sad!
First of all, society tells us that we should have no regrets in life. That’s ridiculous. Continue reading
You can’t push rewind on life.
You can’t go back in time and make different choices.
You can’t get time with loved ones back.
You can’t undo your mistakes.
You can’t relive your favorite day. Continue reading
The other day, I had a prayer just pop into my head. My heart was saying the prayer before I had even processed it. It was “God, help me to be unsatisfied with the things of this world.” Continue reading
“My life will really start when…”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had that thought, finished by many different phrases, like “I get married” or “I have my own house” or “I have kids” or “We’re not in debt anymore.” It’s still really difficult to chase those thoughts out of my head, but allowing them to affect my outlook on life is detrimental!

I was just struck by the contrast between life’s amazing moments and the hard times and how they all combine to create such a beautiful, God revealing, meaningful life. Continue reading
This is just a post that will help you understand me a little better. I’m just going to tell you about my phobia! I am TERRIFIED of birds. If someone asks me to tell an interesting fact about myself, that’s usually it. Except, it’s really not that unusual. I actually know a lot of other people who are afraid of birds!

Mr. Rockefeller has type 1 diabetes. He handles his diabetes really well and I am so proud of him for the ways that he deals with it. Type 1 diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, is a condition where a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates glucose (sugar) levels.

Diabetics regulate their glucose levels by injecting insulin to keep their sugar levels from going too high and consuming glucose when the injected insulin causes their levels to go too low.
