Look Beyond the Fog

I use the word fog because it's visual. We've all seen a foggy morning or tried to drive in a thick fog, right? It's hard to see the whole situation. It's literally clouded and we can only focus on what's right around us. It can be frustrating and even scary.  Sometimes in life, we need… Continue reading Look Beyond the Fog

Never in a Million Years

She stood in the kitchen cooking dinner, just like every other night. Except this time, she glanced up to see her children busy playing. She looked at them, really looked at them and she cried.  Never in a million years could she have imagined this day. Standing right smack in the middle of this life,… Continue reading Never in a Million Years

Nail Confessions

Let's start with a confession. Are you ready? My nails went many years completely naked. It's true, most of my life...they've been bare. I know, I know. It's embarrassing to admit, but there's good news. I've finally started to dress them and all is well.  Today, I'm taking you on a step-by-step guide through my… Continue reading Nail Confessions

Be the Tree

It's been really hot, for a really long time. I'm talking seatbelt burning, soaked skin, flame wind, melting hot. I keep searching for cooler temps to come, but they're not in the forecast.  When it's like this, I find the shade of a tree very comforting. I seek it. I feel like I can breathe… Continue reading Be the Tree

Kitchen Yoga

Several weeks ago I started doing some yoga stretches at night. It's been something I really enjoy and I haven't missed a night since starting this new hobby. I'm definitely not an expert, but I've got a few stretches down and I'll just stick with that for now.  Today, as I was cooking dinner, I… Continue reading Kitchen Yoga

I’m Happy My Mom Plan Failed…Here’s Why

It's just a part of my life that brought either joy or anxiety… ...Until I failed. You see, I listened to everyone's… Continue reading I’m Happy My Mom Plan Failed…Here’s Why

Dear Mom, Now I Know

For many years I never truly understood what being a mom really meant. I looked at my baby pictures and you were always smiling so big. You always had fun activities for us to do and dressed me in frilly little dresses. I was thankful for such a great childhood, but I never knew what… Continue reading Dear Mom, Now I Know

Fly on the Wall

I remember hearing the phrase, "If I could be a fly on the wall" so many times in my life. As a child I literally imagined being a tiny insect sitting on a wall watching everything going on in the room. What must that look like? Now that I'm older I still wonder what I… Continue reading Fly on the Wall

What day is it?…A little peek inside a Mom Brain

Have you ever wondered what happens inside another mom's brain? Like, you've considered calling up Miss. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus and asking her to shrink down her little bus and drive right in into another mom's thought process? Yes? You understand and relate to at least half of what I just said? Then… Continue reading What day is it?…A little peek inside a Mom Brain

I Can’t Keep Up

It's the last day of another year gone by. How can I let it pass without reflecting on this year? As I sat down to think, certain experiences or moments didn't immediately come to mind as I intended. Instead I kept hearing the words, please slow down. My husband and I did quite a bit… Continue reading I Can’t Keep Up
