“Karen’s Noggin’ 🧠 Nuggets” #4 ~ August 20, 2022


My heart is so full!!!

I’m ready to come out of my skin with excitement!

This has been the BEST week of my life!!!

💥I broke out of my cocoon! (See “Karen’s Noggin’ Nuggets” #1 “MY ADHD COCOON”)

💥I plopped my bottom in the chair! (See “Karen’s Noggin’ Nuggets” #2 “PLOP YOUR BOTTOM IN THAT CHAIR LITTLE MISSY”)

💥And I began the journey of a dream from a seed that was planted in my heart 45+ years ago! (See “Karen’s Noggin’ Nuggets” #3 “WHAT DO GOD AND SEAWEED HAVE IN COMMON?”)

As I process my next moves in this new and exciting adventure, I realize that I have more than enough material to keep my writing going until the end of time. Or at least until the end of my time. 

That seed that was placed in that little girl so long ago has had lots of water, sunshine and even fertilizer poured into it. At times, more than I want to admit, some stinky manure has been dumped on that little seed and it even experienced times of crushing. It’s amazing to me that that little seed survived for this moment in time to share all that it has gone through in its journey. 

Now it’s the fun part! What great story do I share next? Will it be some exciting snippet from Dad’s stories from when he hiked the Grand Canyon while working at the Grand Canyon Lodge in the summers of 1948, 1949, and 1950? Or maybe from my family heritage report that I wrote in college. What a great reminder to me of the amazing family I was born into. Or do I start with one of the many titles I feel like The Lord has given me over the years….

-My Twin Ethel

-Marshmallows & Velveeta Cheese 

-Aunt Lois vs The Snake

-Root Beer, Donuts, and Nebraska Football

-Auntie Karen, How Come Your Ears Are Smaller Than Michaels?

-Oh No…My Bladder Has Eyes!

-Pig Poop and Scrubbing Toilets

-Drunk On Pancakes

-Uncle Harold And Our Indian Fishing Guide

-Admiral Aloysius Johnson

-String Too Short To Save

-Uncle Elly’s Selfies

-This Is The Life

-Praise Reports and Swedish Fish

-Barnabas Saved My Life!


-H.E. Double Hockey Sticks

-Who Put The Dope In My Pen And Paper?

And the list goes on and on. 

This is now an ADHDers dream come true!

I can just let my brain go. As my brain is so much like a pinball machine, I’m having a blast just letting all the balls loose in my pinball machine brain. They are bouncing all over. 

With each new idea, it’s as if I just dropped a quarter in the coin door. My pinball machine brain comes to life! Lights flash, the bells & whistles go off, the scoreboard resets to zero, and a stainless-steel ball clink into place. The ball is ready for the plunger to send it into shooter alley to find a maze of ramps, bumpers, and flippers. 🎉 How fun! 

Every new idea, revelation, or nugget, comes in a different package now. It’s with a new awareness that I receive them to provide an avenue to encourage, motivate, inspire, or maybe just provide some lighthearted reading for my audience. 

Audience? What audience? Do you mean I have someone other than The Lord that’s interested in what I want to share?

I am so thankful and so very blessed to know that God wants more than just an audience of ONE to enjoy the benefits of a seed that survived!
