Where the Bruised Cucumber meets the Sippy Cup!

A Loud Mama with a loud family, living imperfect lives glorified through God and breaking free of the bondage of politically correct Religion. We do things differently around the Viking Homestead, and hope that, by sharing our lives, we can help others feel more comfortable with their differences as well.

Mama Viking Says Its Mindful Monday, Y'all!!

Ok, so, I have a horrible trend in my world of things being REALLY blowful on Mondays. I mean, usually, if something is gonna go wrong, it just seems to be on a Monday. Once there was an episode of Garfield and Friends where Garfield wished away Mondays...now, of course, chaos ensued after a bit and he wished things back to normal. However, it was only because Jon went to the market and got paid on Mondays and therefore, no lasagna could be had. I'm a bit more optimistic about a world with no Mondays, except that I would hate for my Tuesdays to be ruined. With that in mind, I've decided that if I accomplish nothing else on Mondays, I want to put something really positive out there, so that it can't be all bad. Whether its a small victory, or just sharing something good, Hopefully I can change at least one little part of Monday. Today, I'm very encouraged. I'd gotten off track, nutritionally speaking, lately and have been paying dearly for it. However, today marks the first full day that I have not cheated since Lent ended....I went on a bit of a bender, to make up for all the junk I was not eating, and am now suffering the consequences! I'm excited to make it through the first day....it always leads to another, and they get easier the more of them you put in a row. Its the same with any hurdle or goal....one foot in front of the other. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step and such. Sometimes, it really does take a leap of faith...you don't see how things are going to get better or how on earth you are going to accomplish your goal...well, you aren't. Not alone. I don't buy all this 'island unto yourself' stuff...because, at the very least, God will be walking you through all of it....putting you through tests to break you down so that you are able to be what and where He needs you to be. So, patience is a virtue, sometimes the hardest step is the first and now I'm on a mission to find Gluten free beer. See y'all tomorrow!! <3
