Best Friends/Daredevil Goddesses

I met my first, true best friend when I was nine. Her name was Christine and even though our personalities were polar opposites, she shy and silent, me gregarious and chatty, we were instant friends. What I learned some years later during one of our late night conversations, was that Chris, as she... Sign in to see full entry.

I spend three days a week (at least) at the children's hopsital with my daughter for therapy and specialist appointments so I know the place well. And I've come to know the arena of disabled children well also. That said, in the beginning it was all very new to me. Our family has never had a... Sign in to see full entry.

How Can I Keep From Singing

When I was pregnant with Amaris, I was four months along when making a big move. On a drive through a large city I discovered they had what's called 'Fetal Foto's.

Still Waters

There are things churning deep inside. On the surface, things are good. And this is important and I am thankful. I don't want to miss an opportunity to be grateful.

Always Wanted A Sister

My mom gave birth to my little sister when I was 6 years old.. I remember my mom's pregnancy, I remember her pregnancy weirdness, fainting, doctor's visits, fatigue and I remember the night my sister was born. It was a hot, muggy night, July 14, 1972 when, my mom woke to contractions that kept her... Sign in to see full entry.

The Epiphany

When my daughter was first diagnosed as terminally ill and I began the process of falling apart, I was so blindsided by the impact of the pain that for months I didn't know where the pain ended and I began. There was no line of demarcation at that time. The pain and I were one. I have searched for... Sign in to see full entry.

The Unintentional Flasher

So I go to the stylist at the mall for a hair upgrade. This salon is the type that is completely glass so all can see you having your 'do done. The hair stylist, Eartha who is pretty and eccentric in the way that hair artists sometimes are, sends me to another room to take off my clothing and don a... Sign in to see full entry.
