My little girl is off in surgery. For something minor, tonsils, adenoids, turbinates. Yet, it doesn’t matter, that it’s minor. Not in this mother’s heart. She is my tiny, eight year old little girl who just went to sleep with cotton candy gas. The anesthesiologist told her he was taking her to space. I watched … More Strong and Brave
Your ashes are ready. Received the call yesterday. Thought once you were ready to take home I would jump at the opportunity. You’ve been waiting for me one day already. I guess I’m not jumping as high as I thought I would. I’ve earned the task of purging you from our home. Upon returning home … More God’s Hands or Mine
This one is for the moms out there. The ones who love their children more than anything else in this world. You know who you are. You would sacrifice anything for your children.

I love music. The meanings behind the words, that speak to my heart. The way the melodies cause my body to move. I’ll be honest though…rarely … More Harder, Faster, Farther….

Thinking to myself, “This really isn’t a question you should have to think long and hard about, is it?” I … More My Favorite Room in My House
Ever have a very unexpected, yet wowing, conversation with someone? The kind of conversation that makes you stop and really think about what was just said? I had one of those this evening. With my 6 year old!! Lou and I had the most in depth, serious, conversation, in the car, on the way to … More Acceptance is Heavenly
I’ve had two occurrences, in the last several weeks, that have led me to wonder what the true definition of forgiveness is. What forgiveness really means.

Every morning, I have the luxury of being the one to drop my daughter, Lou, off at Kindergarten. We wait for the doors to open and she heads on in. Not prior to giving me a big hug, a smile, and a kiss goodbye. I tell her, everyday, to “have fun, be a good friend, … More Anxiety & Hope
