Being a woman, the title of this post alone is a very hard thing to admit to. Admitting that we struggle causes us to feel that we aren’t good enough or that we’ve failed in some form. But, I find it an appropriate time to be bold and reveal some of the thoughts I face on being…Continue

When I was in high school, my family lived in southeast Georgia, about an hour from Savannah, and while winters down south are generally pretty mild, especially compared to what we were used to in Ohio, we always looked forward to spring and the blooming of the azaleas in early March.

We are all familiar with the phrase Grave Robber, a crime in which an individual raids a tomb to steal artifacts or personal effects from the deceased. Just to clarify that is a crime in which a soul that has passed on is robbed of material thing. However, when an individual steals the joy, a very important component of mental health, from another soul no crime is committed but the repercussions to the victim are far more damaging.

What I absolutely adore most about this experience is how many people said they were going to pay it forward. And the fact that when I logged onto Facebook that night a friend had said that someone paid for her coffee and she…Continue

That moment you realize that everything is going right, all that you need or want is coming into your life right when its suppose to be. Some call this luck, coincidence, or just plan chance, but I call this synchronicity or being in the vortex. This whole week I have been focusing my attention on what I do want. Everything you can imagine has gone wrong and I just didn't let it phase me. I just allowed the Universe to do what it must in order for me to get what I need. I have been reading…Continue

I'm finding that there are just two things- two simple things- that if I give my attention to, make the world of difference for me and my wee one- …Continue

For nine years I spent most of my days surrounded by other people's children- teaching them to love to read and write (or at least not hate it). For nine years I desperately tried to balance my school room hat and my mama hat. Things were lost in the mix. Life was good, but always fast paced- too fast.
There were external things going on too- issues I could no longer overlook. After a year of deliberation, I left my job to stay at home, homeschool our preschool age daughter, and find…Continue

These days, after being a full time working mom, I am home with my two slowly figuring out the balance in being home. These days I am a single mom while my husband takes time to finish research. While we are used to summers like this, there is always a learning curve. I have grand plans of all the things I can accomplish now that I'm not working- all the things that I wished I could do August through May. It's a tall order, and soon I figure out that it's too tall. These days I'm reminding…Continue

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
A poem by the great Langston Hughes.…

I feel ashamed to admit how often I lose my cool around my children. In all honesty, not losing my cool at least once during the day is a rare exception. Not only do these kids know a great deal about how to push my buttons, but they are also extremely irrational. The combo of the two is a sure fire way to bring out what I call "Mean Mommy."…

As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…Continue
