Facebook Perfect Lives

I started out my morning pretty happy.  I got snuggles from my toddler, my oldest came in to say good morning and get a hug.  Then my Dude came in and explained to me that he “didn’t drop it, there was just too much gravity.”  He never did explain to me what exactly he didn’t…

Harmony

I had a pretty cool experience last fall, before all of this craziness started. And I haven’t been able to get it off of my mind lately. Picture yourself sitting by a lake on a cool, frosty morning.  You are sitting in a circle with a group of women, some of whom you know, others…

Perspective

Perspective.  Getting to choose how you look at your current situation. It’s been one of those days. Weeks.  Months.  Where very time I turn around it feels as though something else in my life is falling apart.  Or do I just need to change my perspective? There are always going to be those days. Or…

Just What I Needed

If you’ve been reading my posts over the last few years, you know that life has felt kind of overwhelming at times.   It has even felt at times like there was no way to get out from under this huge cloud over me. Here’s a quick recap for those who dont know:  I had…
