There IS Crying In Baseball

Bengie Molina's postgame interview just made me cry. 

Yes, I know it has been ages since my last post.  I have plans for a number of entries, but things have been crazy.  September was supposed to be my laid back month after my crazy August.  It didn't work out that way at all.  Sorry, Friends.  I promise to come back.

Needless Information

In case you are interested in what I've been into lately I've added a new little list to the right hand column of this blog.  I'll keep it updated with books, music, movies, shopping, websites, and clothes.  I hope you enjoy it.

"Live From An Authentic Place"

I heard that tonight (spoken by Rick Allen of Def Leppard) and it struck me.  I've been working on it for a while now and I feel like I'm getting better at it.  I've said before that I spent too much time pretending all was well even when it wasn't, but part of what God has been teaching me as of late is that living authentically means sharing my joys as well.  It means connecting with people.  I don't think I have invested enough in people in the last few years.  My friendships are dear to me, but I don't make (or sometimes, unfortunately, have) time for them.  I think in some ways I've gotten lazy if I'm honest, but life has also changed.  I feel disjointed at times because there are so many amazing people around me that I love deeply.  I want to spend time with all of them, but, realistically, I can't.  I feel like because of that I have many shallow relationships instead of a few deep ones.  Thankfully, I've been blessed with some great friends that I can pick up with after a long time and feel like we saw each other yesterday.  Unfortunately, we don't get to live day to day life together.  All this to say that God has been teaching me that I need those connections.  He has also been reminding me that most of all I need Him.  He is the one who makes me feel whole.  He is the one who is all sufficient.  I haven't been making time for Him lately and I feel the drain of it.  I need more than quick prayers before meals, bed, and as I fly through my day.  I need to really connect with Him.  My marriage, my child, and my loved ones will receive the overflowing blessings if I do.

Short & Real

I'm sooooooooo tired.  The night before last was my first night of real sleep in about a week.  Unfortunately last night was back to no sleep until 2 and then it was patchy at best.  This week it has been our poor baby having a rough time.  The weekend was adventures with Baby Benadryl since our little one got something with cashew in it.  For some reason I slept really poorly on the trip so that accounts for last week.  Sorry there haven't been posts.  I'm drained.  Life is good beyond that.  I hope it is for you as well.
