Friday Five Recently | Week 2



Hello August!  How is it time for school to start back already?  We still have another week before we start back with our virtual homeschool.  However, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed the other day and saw that some of my friends' kids started back last week and earlier this week.

Since I'm still recovering from July (more on that below), I'm so thankful that I have another seven days to rest up.  Here's to hoping I finish getting everything organized next week.  Anyways, since I've been on a hiatus let's play catch up! 

Friday Five Recently | Week 1


Happy Friday!  Who's ready for the weekend?  Or does every day feel like the weekend since it's Summer Break? 🤔

I'm still trying to figure this one out.  Anyways, I feel like this week was long, but not in a bad way.  With the first month of Summer Break coming to a close, I'm not complaining about time passing by slowly.  There is NO rush to start back up with school just yet.

My sophomore year of high school I made the decision to join the track team.  My depression was starting to consume me and some of my teachers had started expressing concern over how withdrawn I seemed.  I'll never forget the day one of my teachers asked me to stay for a few minutes after class.  "I'm worried about you.  Is everything okay at home?" she asked.  "Somethings's going on with you like you're always sad."

When it comes to life lessons and wisdom, Proverbs is like the ultimate roadmap.  It's filled with so many life lessons to help us tackle some of life's everyday challenges and to help build great character.   King Soloman prayed to God for wisdom and God granted his request.  Soloman then compiled some of that wisdom into the book that is Proverbs.

Summer Break is finally here!!  I wanted to make a special dessert/snack to help us celebrate the end of another successful school year.  When I was a kid my mom used to let us pop our own popcorn as a treat for special moments like getting a good grade on a test or family movie night.  So it's only seemed fitting that I introduce this tradition to my kids.  Of course, we put our own twist on it by ditching the canola oil for Malaysian Red Palm Oil and kicked things up a notch by turning our popcorn into tropical fruit popcorn bars.

"It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder.  We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake." -Frederick Douglass


Sometimes we're forced into darkness not to find light but find fuel for our inner fire.  My light went out about two months ago when I woke and found on my inner right breast.  At first, I wasn't overly concerned about it.  I thought it might have been more a bump caused by the bra had worn and accidentally fell asleep in.  I did start to worry when said lump doubled in size and started to be very painful and tender to the touch.
