Doubt

Doubt is the opposite of faith. When you are standing on the Tee box, or in the fairway of the golf course, and you are getting ready to hit a shot, doubt can be a “death wish” for being able to hit a good shot! As a golfing mom (spectating and fan only), I have […]

It Is Go Time!

If there is the slightest noise in our house at night, I can hear Sadie and Daisy’s “growl box” idle at a low, steady grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Sometimes that is all I hear…the “grrrrrrrrr” and then they settle down and the night rests in silence…except for a few snores here and there. The other night was so […]

I will never forget buying our first house, 1300 square feet of precious…with the exception of needing a new kitchen and the hard wood floors needing to be redone…and the bathrooms redone…plus new doors and the front porch redone. It seemed to be a small project but being 26 and “green behind the ears,” as […]
