Can you be burned out and still be inspired?

February 1, 2012


This is what I am asking myself right now?  Recently, I have been pushing hard, burning the candle at both ends and in the middle and I am tired.  Or maybe it’s burned out.  As I headed  around the blogosphere the past few days to visit other bloggers who I enjoy reading, many of their […]

A request at the intersection of hope and uncertainty.

November 30, 2011


“Each instant is place we’ve never been.” ~ Mark Strand As the wind rages outside, it mirrors how I have felt all day or really if I am honest, the past few days.  A tornado of leaves swirling around in my head and chest.  I think technically, they call it anxiety, I might qualify it […]

“Never say NEVER because you just never know.”

November 28, 2011

Look into my eyes…An early Halloween Treat.

October 30, 2011


“I have looked into your eyes with my eyes. I have put my heart near your heart.” ~ Pope John XXIII It was a weekend filled with “normal” parent-with-children activities.  To be totally honest, I still find some of this “normalcy” tiring in a different way than when I was chasing watermelons down the street […]

E makes Magic Friday, Pure Magic. Go on put what you want out there, it can’t hurt.

In true form of putting something into the universe, Magic Friday on ‘mynewfavoriteday’ indeed became magical when Miss E decided she would be perfectly happy to have mommy hold her hands (huge) while she stood about a foot away from me supporting her own body weight. Just standing, standing and more standing. And, if that […]
