Magnolias and Momentum

Walking in the rain is NO JOKE! However, I am determined to keep my momentum going. I am motivated by my recent weight loss and exercise regimen to keep pushing forward. That doesn’t mean walking in a steady downpour is pleasant or something I even WANT TO DO. But you know what helped me this…

Restoration and Answered Prayers

Last week, I cleaned out the flower bed beside my side door. I felt so proud of myself because the bed looked like it could “breathe”…..until I looked and saw I had pulled off a caladium leaf. I was so sad! I waited soooooo long for my caladium to break ground and grow! I stood…

Walk Through The Rain

I had to laugh at myself this morning. I was hoping for a drizzle and got much more rain than that while walking. I was hoping my thin poncho would protect me and it kinda did😂. I’m used to the rain now; I’m learning to focus on other things: praying, listening to music, counting my…

The right “circle”, “front row folks”, support system, etc., will encourage your greatness, remind you of how awesome you are when you doubt yourself, and keep you covered…

What’s Keeping You Grounded?

I have been asked a few times, “KP, how are staying sane (happy, straight, calm, making it, etc.) through these trying times. My answer is simple and not simple at the same time: 1) I’m reading the Word more, along with other inspirational works. They remind me to trust my Creator and leave all my…

Cherish Good Memories

Last night when Paul got home from work (he has not stopped working since COVID 19 came; he’s considered essential), I had just finished cooking. He sat down in his recliner and I sat opposite him on the couch. We discussed our day (shipping and mental health), the boys, and plans for Team Pruden Headquarters.…
