Enthusiasm is a kind of faith that has been set on fire. ~ George Matthew Adams Hello!  It’s been so long, the longest time I have gone without coming here and saying hello. I suppose in the balls that could drop, this is really the only one I could let go without feeling like it […]

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

‘Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.’ ~ Robert Browning If you haven’t seen this video, it goes right to my heart for obvious reasons. We sat for hours doing Kangaroo Care with Q and E when they were born just one week later than these wee ones .  We cuddled them against our skin […]

“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 […]
