At first, it was just me. You weren’t even a glimmer in my mind. Through the night-feedings. The early-morning cuddles. The midday naps. The evening tears. Through the first steps. The puddle-jumping. The mess-making. Through the first words. The nighttime stories. The bedtime dance-parties. Through trying new foods. The cooking adventures. The we’ll-clean-it-up-later kitchen messes. […] Read more…

The Forgiveness of Motherhood

| Family, Mommyhood, Personal, Womanhood

ForgivenessofMotherhood6

Not a day goes by when I don’t find myself questioning something I did during the last 24 hours as a mother. Bearing the responsibility for four precious beings, plus an overgrown puppy can, at times, place a lot of pressure on this mama’s perfectionist-driven shoulders. -Did we have enough fruits and vegetables? -Did I encourage each of […] Read more…

Divide and Multiply

I will n.e.v.e.r. forget the moment. The exact moment when it suddenly “hit”. When my heart was officially divided. Split. When my love for one little being was now shared between two. There were tears. Hormonal, no doubt. Guilt. An abundance. And lots of questioning… ~”How was I going to do this?” ~”How am I […] Read more…

They can be a.n.y.w.h.e.r.e. They can show up e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. Hidden in technology. Piling up in the laundry room. Calling through the upstairs hallway in the form of tiny voices. Staring at you from the kitchen sink. And now, more than any other time of year, swaying your attention, at any given moment. By way of […] Read more…

Yesterday afternoon, a very sweet friend of mine shared a post through social media. A collection of words that would undoubtedly touch a.n.y.o.n.e.’s heart. A story that totally and completely broke mine into a million pieces She prefaced her sharing by requesting prayers for this incredible family. And their fight. Their very public journey. Their […] Read more…

I could not have asked for a more beautiful October day. Sunny. Breezy. Mid-seventies. The girls had a great morning. After a week on fall break without naps, arguments, tears and hurt-feelings had become a daily occurrence. But today was different. There was a grace in the air that was bound to be releasing. Refreshing. […] Read more…

The Gift of Response

We are a.l.l. busy. Goodness knows this. It truly has become a worldwide mantra. Our society today is s.o. v.e.r.y. different from the world in which I grew up. Where families ate together every night. Children played outside until dusk (or longer, in most cases). Photos were developed “in a few days” through actual tangible film. Kids […] Read more…
