Perhaps it’s time we get pushed outside our comfort zones

The events in our country recently have created much unease across the nation. What happened to George Floyd was, without question, appalling, heartbreaking, and so blatantly cruel. The negativity toward our police officers is disheartening because the majority of them are truly here to…

Cherishing the Milestones: Sometimes we aren’t prepared, but we can still embrace the change

This week we got an unexpected surprise. J discovered a wiggly tooth, and a couple short hours later lost his first tooth! Needless to say we were not prepared for this at all. We thought we had another year before we reached this milestone,…

In such an uncertain time, one thing I know for certain is the love from teachers

This week has been bitter sweet. We get this unexpected and blessed time to spend with our children due to COVID-19. No matter how stressful, overwhelming, and ever changing this time may be, we all have taken moments to cherish the amazing beings that…

Why do I feel so out of place in the surroundings I love?

A season for rest.

When exhaustion hits, choose to be present

I don’t know how realistic it is to assume all parents feel like me at times. But I do believe, more often than not, most of you do. It is inevitable, as a parent, to become exhausted. I’m not talking about the 8:00pm, kids…

What would you do with a time machine?

Today a friend asked, “If you could travel back to only one event, what would it be?” There are so many events I’d want to return to. Perhaps back in time to see my grandfather or grandmother, just one more time. Or to sort…

The sincerity of an innocent heart

Tonight my husband made the kids dinner, then went on to spend an hour making dinner for me and him. (I know, different meals seem excessive, but when we want a meal full of veggies it’s not worth the struggle and waste of tasty…
