Laughter is the best medicine

If you are very lucky you will have certain people in your life that fill your cup.  People that give you a sense of belonging and provide a sense of security that feels like a warm blanket just by being in their presence. It goes without saying that my family fills that role for me.... Continue Reading →

About my girls, because they asked…

My girls are not your usual teenagers.  Oh sure, they have extremely messy rooms that require hazmat suits to enter.  They can roll their eyes like it is an Olympic sport they have been training for and can express their entire range of emotions by the way they walk (or stomp, or trudge) up the...

I said Yes…and we lived happily ever after

It was brought to my attention that we just passed the 22nd anniversary of our engagement.  Our 20th wedding anniversary is looming next spring.  I was moved to write about our engagement because I have an awesome proposal story.  In truth, I have a fairytale courtship story all the way through but he outdid himself with...

The good news is that my treatment, for all of its ineffectiveness, pretty much stays the same.  The bad news is I've collected... Continue Reading →

Journaling is making me a complainer

The reality is I have always been a complainer.  It's something I've always struggled with.  I was once told by a very intuitive person that I vibrate at a low frequency.  I had no idea what that meant but she said it means I lean towards the negative. I have to actively work on being... Continue Reading →
