Being a coach’s wife is never easy. And there aren’t many people out there to talk to about what happens with our lives in the setting of public school athletics and our husbands’ careers. So I started a new blog on Blogger called Coach’s Wife.
I would love to hear what you think about it. And if you know someone who is a coach’s wife, tell them to stop by and visit.
As for this blog, well I feel guilty because I have neglected it for far to long. I have been on Newsvine a lot these past few months. I have been trying to do some article writing and hope that maybe that can earn me some extra cashola…lol.
I do miss everyone that reads my blog and hope to talk to you guys really soon. God Bless You and have a wonderful day!
There is a song by Marvin Sapp I have been listening to, any chance I get. Tell me what you think!
2009 really got off to a cold start! It has been constant cold, with no end in sight. Coach, K, and M are all busy with basketball; and I am chasing them. With games three nights a week (junior high games on Monday, for M. High school games for Coach and K on Tuesdays and Fridays), I can’t keep up with housework or my sleep. But its okay. My job is to support my kids and my husband.
Christmas was great. I got a new iPod! And let me tell you, Steve Jobs, you are awesome. That is the best creation in the world! I am not the most technologically up-to-date person in the world, I know. But that it is absolutely awesome to be able to put all your music on one little device; and it not get scratched, cracked, lost, stolen, borrowed by your husband who blames it on your son…I love it!
The guys all got clothes, video games, and money. They also got the Playstation 3, which no one really has time to play. But that’s okay. We will get to someday (yeah when Playstation 5 comes out…LOL).
K and M are growing way too fast. M is now 6’0″ and skinny as a rail. K is not far behind. I think they both have taken to growing since we got out for Christmas break, and that only means one thing….MORE CLOTHES SHOPPING AHHHHHHHH!
I am also having a time with my birthday coming up. On February 7th, I will turn 36! I am not sad about it. But I am not excited. There are so many things I wanted to do before I was 40, like take the world by storm. But I have realized it isn’t the most important thing in the world. I have my kids, my husband, my friends and most of my sanity. I think I will be okay!
I realized the other day, I don’t have to be famous, rich, or extremely gorgeous to be happy! I do have to have great shoes, though!
Ya’ll have a great start to the new year, and I will see you soon!
Hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year. Ours was good, just busy.
Much love to you and yours!
This time of year is usually full of craziness for my family! And this year is not proving to be any different.
So just in case I don’t get back around before the holiday break, Have a Safe And Merry Christmas! And an even Safer and Happier New Year!
Okay so I decided to buy the $15 upgrade to CSS on WordPress! I thought maybe I could do some neat stuff to The House! A little redecorating so to speak. Well…apparently I don’t have the foggiest idea of what I’m doing!
If there is anyone out there who would be willing to help me out a bit, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE feel free to let me know.
It’s the end of the week and I have put up three Christmas trees and am not a bit excited about the holidays! How sad is that?
Everyone please have a great and safe weekend….See ya next week.
As a child, I went to a private Baptist school. My parents were both brought up in church. My father was not as religious as he is now, but he believed in God and he encouraged my belief in Him too. My mother was a little more into church, but didn’t force the issue. So I have always had this strong sense of God in my life.
For as long as I can remember, I have always said the pledge; and until I started public school, I prayed with the rest of my classmates. It never was an issue of whether or not it was right or wrong or infringed on someone else’s rights. I always felt, if you don’t want to pray or believe in God, then you are the only one who has to answer for that. So it bothered me this morning when I read this article this morning.
The author argues the words “under God” are in a sense, irrelevant to our society today. How? How can we begin to deny God in every aspect of our nation, when we are a nation founded by ancestors who came to this nation to be able to practice their religion freely and without persecution from the government? Those two words, do not suggest that you must believe a certain way. It does not mean you have to deny your religious principles. And if you don’t believe, you can personally omit it. But don’t ask me to not say it.
In the 1950’s, the problems we see today, may have existed, but they were not as prevalent as they are today. True we don’t live in the 1950’s, but societal standards shouldn’t be based on the times we live in. Our standards should be based upon moral principles and what is right; instead of what the media choses to push on us. I believe that many of our societal problems stem from turning away from God. I look at what I see on television and hear on the radio. Morality in this country is not our strongest attribute. Sex Sellsseems to be our motto. Our churches are not a full on Sunday morning, as they once were. We obsess about how we look. Crime against our fellow man has risen to all time proportions. Hopelessness runs amok. And instead of turning to a “Higher Power”, we tend to just lay down and stay there.
I will not deny God. And I think many of us have fallen into the rut of letting outside interference take our faith and hope away. We tend to forget we didn’t get here on this great big earth on our own. Something had to set it in motion. I believe it was God. I believe a lot of us have strayed away, including myself. And I intended to get back.
So let the naysayers go on about taking God out of one more piece of fabric in our society. Let them say how unimportant it is to commit to God. But I will not be that one anymore that follows. I need God in my life, I am not ashamed to say it.
