  • I


    “I want you to let go.” These are the words said to me. It was a dream, but not a dream. “I” I wish I could look up and see the face that said those words to me and be able to articulate all of the words that went unsaid in the movement that followed. […]

    Lenten Acts

    A year ago I googled Lent because I really had no idea what it was. I knew about fasting, I knew that this was the time of year when the double filet-o-fish could be found…I had an idea that I could “give something up” for Lent. I just had no idea what “Lent” was about […]

    Hope in a Christmas Jar

                  I love my children. All day at work I look forward to seeing them. Even if it is a day that I won’t get to see them…I’m still thinking about the smell of their hair and the twinkle in their eyes. I love to listen to them talk […]

    Fast Flashback: A Social Media Detox in Retrospect

                    No Facebook November is long over. December 1st arrived and I welcomed social media back with a wink and a shudder… The fast was not as difficult as I thought it would be…don’t get me wrong, my November was filled with plenty of #thestruggleisreal moments. I promised […]

  • Wake Up!

    Wake Up!

    It’s a little past 3 a.m. and I can’t sleep and I can’t stop thinking about something my 3 year old, Desmond, said at bedtime. In an attempt to settle my thoughts, I will tap this blog out on my cell phone in a quiet living room, in a warm and safe home, on a […]

  • A Different December: Giving Tuesday

    A Different December: Giving Tuesday

    Yesterday, I listened to a friend express her frustration with the commercialization of Christmas. After years of keeping up with the gift giving flurry she decided to make 2014 the year that Christmas did not drive the family further into debt. After detailing how she had frugally transformed Christmas gifting this year, she went on […]

    No Facebook November

    No Facebook November–this is a thing now, I’m doing this. Actually, I’m having some heart palpitations at this moment, but I think that could also be attributed to the 3.5 cups of coffee I have managed to consume today. I am going to eliminate all social media activity for the month of November 2014. This […]

    You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit!

              My heart broke 2 nights ago…I was sure that I was ruining my children’s lives… We were settled down in bed and the room had grown quiet. Dexter was fast asleep and Desmond says, through ever-increasing tears, “Mommy, I miss daddy when I’m with you. I miss daddy when I’m […]

  • The Walking Hoard

    The Walking Hoard

                    Last Sunday I had a very significant need for lip gloss. Does anyone else feel like it is vital to re-hydrate their lips after they eat? I knew that I had some lip gloss–somewhere–in my purse–in my purse that is full of a lot of things. Not […]
