I left off last time saying I wanted to find that girl I knew I once was and dig her out again. This morning on my drive to dropping the kids off for school I had a moment of hands full of dirt. I sat behind the steering wheel and my phone was playing a … Continue reading Digging up the fighter….
Somewhere between pre-mom days and this very moment I have lost a bit of myself. In all honesty if I were to try to tell you what part of myself I have lost I'd stammer, because I can't really put it into words. Well, that's not entirely true, I COULD put in into words, I … Continue reading Something’s got to give
A few weeks ago I went to see the newest and latest Spiderman movie, Spiderman Homecoming. I sat and totally enjoyed the movie (ok, maybe enjoyed the popcorn and Milk duds a little too). There is a point in the movie where Peter Parker (who is Spiderman.. spoiler alert) has kind of blown it and … Continue reading What can I give ….. lessons from Spider-man and Tony Stark.
I have always been a uber-fan of old movies. By "old movies" I don't mean movies from the 80's, as my kids would say. I mean movies from the early 20th century 20's-50's.

Could have been the frantic search for socks that match for the kids. Could have been the pace of a three toed sloth … Continue reading What to get mom for mothers day…
There is something about not having a voice (literally, not figuratively) that forces you to listen. Listen to everything around you. The wind in the trees, the barking of your neighbors dog, the laughter of your children as they tumble-down the slide in the backyard. Each sound is either calming and somewhat comforting, or it … Continue reading I am a loser.
I remember sitting in group therapy, listening to people recalling their stories. I listened to an older woman tell of her family not caring about her, and her not feeling loved or appreciated. I watched a 20 something young man pick at and chew his cuticles nervously trying to drown out the itch for drugs. … Continue reading ;
Read this scripture this morning and it got me writing: Stay on good terms with each other, held together by love. Be ready with a meal or a bed when it’s needed. Why, some have extended hospitality to angels without ever knowing it! Regard prisoners as if you were in prison with them. Look on … Continue reading Entertaining Angels….
