Moments for a Monday

"Our life is always under construction.
Sometimes it's subtle, and other times it's messy and inconvenient as hell.
Thankfully these messes are usually temporary.
Be gentle with yourself during those moments
  when it feels like the obstacles are never-ending. You've got this!"

It has been quite a while since I posted an article here. Most of my social media interactions have been diverted to developing a new group that I am excited to share! The creation of this new group started as closed, but due to circumstances that I'll share later this week, I was "encouraged" to open it up and make it public.  Since then, our group has grown and continues to flourish. Check us out!

My Moments for Monday are short this time. I am working on making things simpler, though this is often a struggle for someone who is hell-bent on managing chaos. I've become so accustomed to on the spot problem solving that it feels weird when things are going well. That's effed up. So here goes my attempt at "simplifying" my thoughts for today. (No promised for tomorrow, though. I'm a work in progress.)


It would be incredibly awesome to get a good NIGHT'S sleep once in a while.  Our bed is a temporary inflatable mattress that lasts for 6 months if we are lucky. While saving up for the ultimate mattress is a huge goal, I have to admit it is interesting that we could literally pack up our apartment in one vehicle if necessary. There's something liberating about not having "stuff" even though we would like to furnish and decorate our apartment one day.  I'd rather wait until we can afford it instead of putting crap on credit. I am especially interested in finding out the Ten Things That Are Better in Bed that I keep hearing about.


I actually read one entire book...and it only took me 6 weeks this time. I often long for those days when I became instantly infused into a book within seconds of opening up to the first page. Now, it takes forever to focus and get into the plot.  Maybe it's connected to that good night's sleep thing too. Who knows?  I can't wait to find that next great opportunity to read!  Here's a couple of adventure packed books that you'll love! (They did not take me 6 weeks! I picked them up and read them until the end.) Can't wait for more of Katherine's books to come out. She's an amazing author! The secret is out! Get a hold of these before summer and toss them into your travel bags!


It's that time of the year when schools will let out for Summer and vacation plans will be made. Whether you stay at home or travel away from your home base, there will be opportunities to keep the kids busy and allow them to entertain themselves too. I am still trying to figure out those details and feel like time is running out...the same feeling that often arises before end of the year celebrations like Christmas.  Find out how you can plan your dream destination this Summer! Whatever you plan, make sure THIS is part of your travel gear.  From picnics to sporting events to concerts and movies beneath the stars, this huge blanket will be a big, comfortable place marker for your family and friends.  Just in time for your SUMMER of Fun and ADVENTURE! FIRST AID KITS available here.

  That's all! My list of THREE instead of TEN for this week's
Moments for a Monday.

Wishing all of you a week of adventures,
solutions to your challenges,
answers to your prayers,
& resources to help you survive
all of your collaborative projects!

Kindest Wishes,

~ Mary
