Take Me to Another Place! [VLOG 19]

Take Me to Another Place! [VLOG 19]

Do you know Arrested Development’s song “Tennessee”? Part of the lyrics go: “Lord, I’ve really been real stressed, down and out, losing ground,” and “Take me to another place, take me to another land. Make me forget all that hurts me, let me understand your plan.” If you’ve been watching the past few VLOGs, you know those particular parts of the song, and more, ring so true for me (I know the song’s message extends beyond my circumstance). But get this! We happened to get to go on another trip…to Tennessee, with my husband for a work project; right in the midst of the same season. Ironic huh? Watch this episode of Zara & Family VLOG to see all about it.

Bye-Bye Jersey, Gotta Get Home [VLOG 15]

You ever lose more than one person at the same time, and feel stuck in a pit? My emotions went through the ringer with the car accident at the top of the New Year, a birthday celebration for my son and the death of his grandfather the same day–after already trying to cope with the loss of my close aunt not long before. Then, jetting from ATL, on the fly, for the funerals in north Jersey. Whew. Made me remember that no two people grieve the same; and it hit me worse than I expected. However, it came time to leave NJ and meet the needs of my immediate family in ATL. It’s so crazy how you can look totally opposite of how your heart feels inside. See what I mean when you watch this episode of Zara & Family VLOG.
