The Plain Purple Balls

Posted by Hallee on Dec 21, 2011 in Life

When I left Kaylee’s dad, I moved on December 15th. One might wonder why I moved out of my house the week before Christmas when we had a 4-year-old. Most people would try to “stay normal” until after the Christmas holidays for the sake of their children. My timing had less to do with me and more to do with the fact that he’d moved his girlfriend into our guest room on the 12th.

Good Friends

Posted by Hallee on Nov 21, 2011 in Life

Last Monday, Gregg and I finished our 40-day Daniel Fast. For 40 days, we ate nothing but whole food fruits, vegetables, and some whole grains. To drink, we only had water.

We have good friends who come to our weekly small group in our home every Sunday night, and we had joked about missing chocolate and coffee more than anything.

Seeing My Daughter Through New Eyes

Kaylee has a lot of friends. She’s an alpha personality, a natural leader, and breaks the traditional clique lines without fear. She often has friends over, on a one-to-one basis, but this was a rare opportunity for me to see her with a group setting outside of our church youth group.

Being a Good Friend

Posted by Hallee on May 4, 2011 in Life

I’m not a great friend.

Really, I’m not.

The worst part about it, though, is that I have terrific friends. I have the best friends and I could call any one of them and they’d be here in a heartbeat.
