It's been a while since my last visit here. I haven't felt much like writing or reading. But that's been ok. I am learning that we all go through cycles in life and that it is so beneficial to allow ourselves that. Sometimes that gives opportunity for some of the biggest blessings and breakthroughs. I have undertaken many long put off projects in these last weeks, made some new friends, pursued some new interests and done a lot of soul searching. I'm feeling reborn, in a way. And looking forward... Sign in to see full entry.

Early and Dreams

I am awake's 3 a.m. I was sleeping deep and was awakened by a dream about my daughter. In the dream, she had just gotten married and was in her wedding dress. I was crying and hugging her and saying I was so sorry over and over again because I had missed her wedding due to my job. The dream felt so real. In true life, she was married 3 years ago. The wedding was beautiful. And I was there! Sign in to see full entry.

Music, Music, Music

It is going to be a day of music filming today. My middle child, Sarah, is a singer. She is very gifted but also very shy. She has done a few Youtube covers, also a clip for the Tom Joyner morning show, a few park festivals...but she stopped for a year or so just due to the stress of the social aspect of the whole thIng. Seems this music gift has been nagging at her though. She came to my husband and I and expressed her desire to start recording Youtube covers. So we are going to start... Sign in to see full entry.

Car Shopping

Arghhh, in the midst of used car shopping with our daughter. She's home from Haiti for a year now...such sad goodbyes were said. But some exciting hellos on this end. Anyway, she is nannying for a family who has a 7 year old special needs boy and 2 other young boys ages 2 and 4. Its a sweet job with a beautiful British family. My Anna is getting a lot of experience in G tube feedings, wheelchair fittings, communication boards etc...She's loving it even though the hours are long. And she is... Sign in to see full entry.

On Writing

I would love to write for a living. That would have been my dream. A cabin in the woods, a fire slowly burning. Cozy afternoons and late nights of expressing my heart. But here I am, living in the middle of a bustling city. How odd life is..... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Started...

And so I bit the bullet and started a new blog on this site called The Story of My Life. I've been putting off working on it. It makes me miss Mom so. But then I got to thinking, do I miss her any less because I'm NOT working on it? Not really. The pain is still there and still very real. So why not go for it? It might just be good therapy. And so that's what I did today. And I think I really do feel better. Sign in to see full entry.

Miles and Miles

A new morning. Sun is shining. More freshly fallen snow....about 3 inches more, I believe. I want to just lay in the bed. A feeling of melancholy I can't quite shake hangs on and on. But there are things to be done. Places to go. People to connect with. What is that Robert Frost poem I am just now reminded of? Something about having miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep. Ahhh yes, the woods are lovely, dark and deep...... Sign in to see full entry.

Soul Keeper

Whatever is good for your soul....Do it. What is good for your soul today? What is good for your soul this hour, this moment? To sing, to write, to garden, to bake? To rest, to work, to connect, to pull back? For me, it was to tell someone that I could not talk with them this week, or maybe not even next. Maybe not ever again. A hard, hard call to make, but one I feel good about. And one that I good for my soul. In the end, whatever is good for your soul, is good for all of the souls... Sign in to see full entry.

Just the way it is

Feeling a bit blah, not even too motivated to write. Maybe it's the harsh weather or maybe the lack of sun or maybe it just is. A day off work today to just catch up on things. Coffee, banana bread, my dog curled up at the foot of my bed. Kids all doing school work in their rooms. There's a coziness about the day. Let the temperature drop outside and let the wind howl away.

Mikey in Haiti

And so, here is Mikey, on his feet for the first time on his own. His look toward my Anna says it all. Sign in to see full entry.
