Baby Steps, Bob!

Baby Steps, Bob!

When change happens TO me- it seems to happen suddenly. Last January there was one business week that went something like this. 1. Michael’s interview at The Church. 2. We found out that we were having an “Abigail”. 3. I had my medical school interview. 4. We closed on our first house. Talk about change. […]

Bounding Into Health

Bounding Into Health

Death sucks. I’ve had people that were too close to me pass too early. And even when those who had lived a full life pass (like my Mama Kay who lived to be in her 100’s), it is still no fun. Disease sucks. I worked with breast cancer patients for two years…saw the good and […]

Productive

Productive

If you’re one of those “go with the flow”, “glass is half-full”, “I’ll get it done tomorrow” kind of people, you may not understand this. Opposite people (like me) will understand this completely. I hate not being productive. Yes, I do my fair share of slacking off and socializing…now. Believe it or not, that was […]

Passion or Compassion

Passion or Compassion

Alright. Stick with me. I think it will be worth it. I debated on whether to put pictures and such…but…I think it would be more of a distraction about cool places or (if it were me) digress to pity. And pity is absolutely NOT the point here. Without further ado… “And there came a leper […]

80-20 Rule

80-20 Rule

Has God ever taken you on a journey that just doesn’t make sense sometimes? Yea… Starting this blog was kind of difficult for me, to be honest. I wasn’t sure how I felt about just “putting it all out there”—and running the risk of being labeled…well…all sorts of things like: hypocrite, liar, stupid, naïve, etc. […]

Perspective

Perspective

POST TEN! I thought I’d try to be clever—do something really awesome and celebratory for 10 posts…but come on. Maybe when I hit 100… Today, I will be visiting the beach—back in Egypt… …totally and completely in my mind. In reality, I will be getting a ridiculous amount of allergy shots. How many? Let’s just […]

Be All There (Part 3)

Be All There (Part 3)

Yesterday, I was absolutely overwhelmed at the response to my post. I was truly excited, truly humbled… And then truly confused. “Why are people even reading this? I don’t know anything!” And then truly ridiculous. “How am I going to write anything that people are going to care about again? I don’t think I have […]

Some People

Some People

It’s the first day back from Spring Break. Ugh. And this is how I feel about it… Which then just makes me gripe about stuff… Some politicians are phony—(ok, maybe all of them, but that doesn’t fit the scheme). Some doctors are arrogant– they shouldn’t have such God-complexes. Some waiters are rude. Some moms are […]

Awe.

Awe.

“Awe (noun). a feeling of reverential respect mixed with fear or wonder:” Studying Neuroanatomy is pretty awful for me. Awful in the “very bad or unpleasant” sense, sometimes. But, many times, it blows me away how intricately we are created. Do you realize that there are tracts in your body specifically designated to help you […]

1…2…3…4…5!!!

1…2…3…4…5!!!

Today we visited Abby’s great-great-grandmother Faye in truly rural Hollis, Oklahoma. (Seriously. This place is so rural, a Sonic can’t even survive there.) However, this is one of my favorite places to be—all five generations in the same room—just being together. No expectations. No obligations. Just enjoying each others’ company. (Even if I did miss […]
