What’s the purpose in connecting with people if you can’t lean on them? I’m here when you’re hurting… when you’re happy… when you’re bored… I’m your sister when you don’t know what’s wrong, but you need someone to understand that things just don’t feel right. Nothing I can say can make life feel any different, but getting it out makes it weigh a little less. I’m here to help you carry it, even if I can’t make it go away. That’s what friends are for.

Not Everyone Will Be On Your Road

A lot of reflecting this morning... Our life has been hard, in many different ways. The lack of support we had starting out was ... whew. Well, let's just say that if it were the opposite and we had as much SUPPORT as we had OPPOSITION, our story wouldn't have been so difficult to write. The pages we've added to the book of our life have been bound not by staples and glue, but by tears and sweat. It's not written in ink, but in blood. It's not decorated with frilly doodles and flowery quotes, … continue reading this story »

“What I Love About My Husband” – Week 134: Mother’s Day Edition!

I'm a pretty simple woman in a lot of ways. I'm not a high maintenance type. I don't do big gifts - as a general rule, I don't want them and I don't give them. I would much rather invest money in experiences than rack up a bunch of stuff. I mean, except for shoes... a girl can never have too many pairs of 6" stilettos LOL As high as my expectations are in almost every area of life, on the day that celebrates me as a mother, I don't need anything additional because I get everything I could … continue reading this story »

Perpetually Curious

I've found over the years that the things I love most about the world and about people are often the things others dislike the most. Differences tend to terrify people - not understanding others, not knowing what makes them tick... that "fear" of the unknown divides people. But those are the things that draw me to people. I'm perpetually curious and appreciate the qualities that make us so different. I'm always intrigued by people whose life experience has been drastically dissimilar to my own - … continue reading this story »
