I keep writing sentences and deleting them. I would much rather write sentences and post them. But writing is harder than it looks, and it is only good if the writer is telling the truth. So here it is: It's late and I'm going to bed.

Everything is up in the air. The pieces are moving, changing. I have to be patient. My life is still finding shape and form.

Me: "That's the part we don't know how to do. We always end up with so much food."
My mom: "We do know how to do it. This is how we do it."

I feel like I say this again and again, but I think Stephanie Nielson is magic. I really enjoyed this post about her family's back-to-school feast. Makes me want to create some traditions of my own.
PS: Tell me if you have any favorites I could borrow.

She said she had a daughter my age. So I asked how old her daughter is, and she said 26. I'm really OK with being 33, but I don't mind being mistaken for 26.

My to-do list is waking me up in the middle of the night, which is such an annoying time of day to be motivated because hardly anything can actually get done.

You know how some days are just not good days? I’m talking about the days when I know in my heart I would be of more service to the world if I stayed inside, under covers, away from the general population for at least 24 hours. Today was one of those days, and I thought of you because I knew you would understand.

I am almost constantly conflicted by two desires. One is to bury my head in my pillow and my body in my bed. The other is to stay up all night getting things done. Sleep usually wins.

You stand on the moon. You wear the sun and the stars. Queen of Heaven, be queen of my heart and queen of my home.

Sheila wrote: “Do what Eminem says, ‘Be not afraid.’”
I replied: “Pretty sure Jesus said that, too.”
She explained: “Yeah but thinking of Eminem saying it gives me butterflies …”

The warm-up made me feel nauseated and the actual workout made me feel faint. I’m fine now, but I fear tomorrow and the day after even more. That’s when the soreness from my butt kicking workout will indeed kick my butt.

My dad says every human on the planet should spend at least 4 hours a day naked. He read that it would improve the environment. From now on, I suggest calling before stopping by my parents' house.

The missionary priest from Haiti said we should ask one question, “Lord Jesus, what is it you want from me?” He suspected we would hear one answer, “See my face in every person you meet.”

You know you’re in the club when the 3-year-old wants to show you her pajamas, sleeping bag, toothbrush and toothpaste.

Everett Bogue might be a genius, and discovering his free e-book made my day. I highly recommend it. And I would like to know what you highly recommend. What cool, amazing, inspiring things are out there that others should be taking in?
