I grew up in Central Oregon. Our property was dotted by juniper trees. One lone pine tree stood in the neighbor's field. These trees needed deep roots to survive. For several years my parents planted various trees and had the kids water them all summer long. These little trees did not have deep roots. They… Continue reading Deeply Rooted Warrior Woman
This is why we are warriors... for the people we love. This includes family, but most especially, God.
Warrior Women know their worth. This says it all for me... especially in my current mood. I hope my daughters always remember their worth. Warriors know their worth and give no discounts.
Years ago I learned an important lesson... Be glad the thorn bush has roses. A Warrior sees the roses. In the past, I have been known to see the negative in things... maybe even everything. I don't remember when, exactly, but one day I woke up and realized that the only thing I could change… Continue reading Warriors See Roses
So... I posted recently that some money was taken from my purse at school this week. Today some of it was returned... including checks that were taken with the cash.

I miss her support of my activities and I miss supporting her in her… Continue reading A Warrior is an Optimist
Warriors are givers. Givers seek out ways to be helpful and give to others. Takers focus on getting as much as possible from everyone around them. A Giver is always looking for ways they can be of assistance to others. A Taker is always trying to figure out what they can get out of any… Continue reading Warriors are Givers
Okay... I will admit. I have been a little discouraged with this weight loss thing. I have been around the same weight for 4 months now. I have so many more pounds to lose to be in the "safe" zone. I am eating well... look at my Menu Mondays. I am doing what I can… Continue reading Warriors Never Quit
I've been thinking today about what makes a warrior woman. A warrior woman is someone who defends core values. She stands up for what is right. She defends children and family. She stand for peace. She stands her ground and, if necessary, pushes for change. She isn't really about glory and is often going about… Continue reading Warriors in the Making
