Silly Woman

This morning, the alarm went off on the opposite side of my bed and I lie there and listened as someone else slapped the snooze button. Beside me, the lanky body of my four year old son lay sprawled out between us, legs strewn across Banks, arm tucked beneath my forehead. I watched the stillness […]

Love is Not Blind

One of my friends was telling me about a guy she knows who is in the process of buying a ring for his girlfriend. She isn’t a fan of the girl and was talking about how all he sees is what she looks like and not who she really is. At one point I commented […]

I Miss Him Already…

Today at lunchtime, I take my child to see his grandparents. This isn’t earth shattering, as he goes to see them at least once a month. But what IS earth shattering is the fact that he goes at lunch time today, and I won’t see him again until Sunday afternoon… almost six full days later. […]

New School

If you ask J how he’s enjoying his new school, he says he loves it.  He describes his days as “great” and both days he’s come home exhausted.  So it seems silly, I guess, that I’m still so nervous about how he’s adjusting. On Monday, when I got there to pick him up, he was […]

And the Greatest of These is Love.

I don’t know what the Supreme Court of the United States is going to do today.  I know what I’d like for them to do, know what I believe the right thing is for them to do, but I don’t know what they will do. What I do know is this… at the end of […]

Blessed.

Sometimes, someone does something so big that it overwhelms you with the sheer kindness of it all.  Sometimes, when you’re at your lowest, someone comes along and lifts you up so high that you’d swear your forehead kisses the clouds as they pass.  Sometimes someone does something so beautiful that you are faced with the […]

Embracing the New Year

There are moments in your life that stand out, for one reason or another… for good or for bad… and you can choose to ignore them or to wrap your arms around them and embrace them for exactly what they are: Part of who you are or who you’re becoming. In the days that lead […]

The Christmas Story

This time of year does something to me, ever since I became a mother. I didn’t realize it until 2009, when J was just four months old, and I found myself sitting in a church pew on Christmas eve, bawling my eyes out while the minister read the Christmas Story.  All of a sudden it […]

It Takes a Village

There are a lot of things I admire/covet about my sister: her ability to let troubles roll off her back like oil on water; her imaginative and sweet-natured son and daughter; her wide expanse of a yard including an herb garden, chickens, bees, and a swing set;  her attentive and engaged husband… the list goes […]

Missing the Magic

At 5:45 the puppy began to yelp and I slid out of bed and into my slippers, shuffling down the moonlit hallway to her kennel.  I clipped leashes on both dogs and stepped out into the half light of the morning, noticing that it had rained overnight.  The air had that curl of mist that […]
