what else is there?

There was a time, not so long ago, really, when I used to wake every day under the dark cloud of anxiety.  Some days, I awoke already paralyzed by fear and doubt – and – being a Type A problem solver kind of gal, would start the day with a list of all the things […]

shine.

This was my most recent post to the online magazine I write for, Pregnancy After Loss Support. http://www.pregnancyafterlosssupport.com/shine-on-mama/ I hesitated in sharing it on this page, as the moments after pregnancy loss sure don’t feel radiant at all.  But I was thinking, that even within the sadness, I want you to find times when you […]

it’s that time of year…gratitude

Gratitude. It’s that time of year.   The time of year when we are all supposed to be grateful.  When the term ‘gratitude’ doesn’t so much make you picture the abundance of autumn but instead invokes the image of punching someone in the face.  It’s messy.  Of course, gratitude is a different beast for us all, […]

autumn love

Sweet ones.  If I can offer one opportunity for “YES TO THIS” at this time of year, it is simple – go outside.  And I’m going to keep this post very simple.  Not much needs to be said. A week later, I am still reverberating from a weekend in the middle of the woods.  I […]
