Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

1. Even though I’m in medical school, I still panic like any other mom. I think I might panic even more because I know all of the horrible one-in-a-bagillion chance things that can go wrong or that it “could be”. No fun. No fair. 2. School isn’t that important to me. Don’t get me wrong. […]

Eclectic Me

Eclectic Me

Tomorrow I have a Bacteriology test, which means a couple of things. 1. I’m kind of stressed out. That’s normal. It’ll pass. 2. I will be carrying around 5 bottles of Germ-X, cringing every time Abby plays in the dirt, and overcooking anything I eat. I’ll pass in a few days when I finally annoy […]

A Drink in the Desert

A Drink in the Desert

Have you ever been alone with God? REALLY been alone with God. No music. No message. Just you and Him. “When they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples.” Mark 4:34 “Our solitude with Him. Jesus does not take us alone and expound things to us all the time; He expounds things to […]

All Things Easter

All Things Easter

Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”.

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.

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 […]

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 […]
