Things are coming full circle. It’s funny how ideas, opportunities, and inklings that I said “not right now” to four years ago are coming to fruition today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I like to execute right away, and I’m being reminded that there’s no rush. If I keep taking even the tiniest of best next steps, I’ll end up right where I need to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve gotta slow down and smell the roses...or the vines in a Dallas parking lot.
MY STORY TO ADORATION-
I was asked a question about how I started to go to adoration and how I find the time to go. As a teen, I always loved going to Teen Catholic Retreats and Conferences. When I would go, I would pray that they would have adoration. I remember participating in Adoration for the first time at a retreat. I had never been or seen anything so beautiful. They would start with music, then in prayer, but then the priest walked in with the Blessed Sacrament. As soon as it passed me, I sobbed. God instantly touched my heart. I feel in love. I feel in love with Christ. * *
As an adult, I tried going every time I heard my small church having adoration. However, 6 years ago, I landed a new career in teaching. Little did I know, God was calling me to this school to be closer to Him. I have a church, St Williams Catholic Church in Round Rock, Tx, that has my 24 hour hospital. I decided to try and start going once a month, then it became once a week and now even 3 times a week. And yes it’s my 24 hour hospital. Every time I would visit Him I was “fixed” from something. * *
We all have the same amount of time in the day. We all have that 24 hours, but it’s what YOU do with that 24 hours. I challenge you to go to adoration. Start with once a month, and you will be amazed how God calls you to see him. Even if it is for 5 minutes, drop by and say hi. Go yell, go cry, go say thank you, go say hello, or just be quiet and let HIM speak to you. What he has to say may amaze you because I have realized that it’s not about what I want for myself, it’s about what God wants for me. The desires I have don’t amount to the desires that Christ has for me. It’s hard. I know. Trust me. I know! I want my desires now! BUT stay calm, stay wise, stay in love with Christ because He has those desires from His heart to yours. Go say “Hi’ to Christ. He misses you! * I posted a live video on this today.

A friend of mine always says there should be TL;DR’s for people. ✨ Found mine. («Nadia – heart full of flowers») What’s your TL;DR as a person?

A few months back I fell pretty hard, I smacked my face, my shoulder and jammed my knee into a door frame as well as landed directly on it. For about 3 1/2 weeks I continued working out not knowing what damage I was doing to my knee because I didn’t want to be called a baby. When the pain became too much, I finally went to the doctor and found out I had partial tears in several places in my knee. I now walk in a brace, whose name is Hodor. ⚔️
The word depression carries a heavyweight. I’ve noticed that the last month or so I have been different. I struggle with getting out of bed and going to do things. Some days the pain is so bad, I just nap all day. 😶 In this weeks blog I have decided to open up about my journey with The Big D and share ways I’ve tried to help it. ✨
If you start to feel like what you're trying isn't working and things might be getting worse, don't hesitate to reach out for professional help. In the U.S.: Find DBSA Chapters/Support Groups or call the NAMI Helpline for support and referrals at 1-800-950-6264. 📲
I’m still me, I just nap a lot and limp from place to place. After 6 weeks of PT I’m heading back to a dr to discuss if surgery is needed or look for other treatments. Hodor doesn’t match many outfits so if I’m not showing up to certain events, that’s probably why. 🙃
For now, I’m just focusing on sitting outside in the sun more, petting all the good boys and girls 🐶 and finding things that make me even the slightest happy. 🌻
Happy Tuesday 💛

😁😁 This is ME! 😁😁
I hardly ever introduce myself on here so I thought I'd take the opportunity as we have lots of new starters in the new term starting on the 6th May!
I'm Jenny and I'm the Class Leader and Owner (cleaner, creator, maker etc etc) of Mini Magoos Sensory Play! My business started in 2017 when my maternity leave with Elsie ended and I headed back into the working world.
So a few random things about me:
1. I have a degree in Drama - which usually helps out in our classes quite a lot! 🤣
2. My weakness is Fruit Pastilles. I can eat a share bag in about 5 mins flat! 🙈
3. I'm one of these strange people that enjoys exercise. Keeps my mind clear and my body working - also helps with the above mentioned Fruit Pastille issue! 😖
4. My daughter Elsie was born on my 30th birthday! 👶
5. I can do the BEST impression of a monkey ever! I sometimes rock it out on our Jungle Theme week! 😉
Have you got a random fact to share? Let me hear it!!! 💕
