“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” ~ Henry D. Thoreau
Although I’ve heard the expression ‘Heaven on earth’ many times, it was only yesterday that I realized how easily we misinterpret its meaning.
While I buy into the concept that to get to the light at the end of the tunnel one must first go through the tunnel, I also feel that the road has been particularly long and rough this year – with sub-freezing temperatures almost everyday, and a pale sun… Continue

“Give people enough guidance to make the decisions you want them to make. Don’t tell them what to do, but encourage them to do what is best.” ~ Jimmy Johnson
A few days ago, I had a conversation with my daughter’s preschool teacher. Her concern was that even if Morgan scores exceptionally well on tests, she rarely follows directions, and prefers instead to follow her own mental map.
After hearing the same things over the years about my boys, her observations didn’t… Continue

“Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.” ~ Voltaire
Yesterday was a dreary day. With temperatures in the forties and a steady, icy drizzle, one felt more motivated to buy warm chestnuts and candy canes that the Easter eggs and colorful bunnies displayed on the shelves of a nearby drugstore. A month away from Easter, winter is still ruling the land.
Yesterday morning, one of the posters on my blog mentioned seeing her daffodils… Continue

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: It goes on.” ~ Robert Frost
When I was a young girl, I found it mind-boggling how older people never seemed to really worry about anything. As for any teenager worth her salt, a small stumble was enough to devastate my world.
One day, one of my mother’s friends came over to see us. She looked terrible – her face was etched with deep lines of worry, and her eyes lacked the spark I was accustomed to see… Continue

Ok, this is slightly embarrassing, but this is the reality of parenthood, right?
At 19 months, my sweet little baby turned toddler has just recently discovered his down south region.
A few days ago, I walked into the living room to find him sitting on
and grinding his sit 'n spin. Then yesterday when grandma and grandpa
were visiting, he grabbed his blankly, sat down on… Continue

Okay moms, how many of you have had family and strangers comment on how much your child doesn't look like you? Raise your hands.
Have you gotten the "He/she looks just like your husband", or "baby looks like your husbands sister", or even "Baby looks just like Great Grandma Ethel" of course it's the in-laws making that comment because your parents wouldn't say such a thing. Or… Continue

We're packing up and heading back to Maine from Florida. It has been a long cold winter. Once again, we'll be arriving in Maine like the "Clampett" family, in Paul's truck loaded up with animals and 'stuff' we can't live without. For Paul that's a gym bag, for me it's a truckload!

You know how on Oprah when she’s interviewing someone who just dropped 150 pounds, she’ll ask, “What was your ah-hah moment, the moment you decided to take action?” Like Jeopardy, I shout out the answer before the contestant: “What is a photograph!”
Sure enough, The Photograph taken of her at a party, wearing stripes that go the wrong way, and spandex stretch pants that accentuate the plate of food on her lap, is plastered on a giant screen and the audience gasps and then applauds.… Continue
