Making my peace with traffic

One of the many reasons we moved was to shorten our commute time. So, although I find myself driving less miles, I find that I am in the car for the same amount of time as I used to be (or sometimes for longer). Every morning and evening, I sit in traffic and look at the other cars around me: I see angry, frustrated drivers who are endangering everyone around them by not using turn signals when merging; I see sleepy drivers who are…

Take it Easy

The beginning of the school year has brought about  lot of changes my entire family has been having to adjust to. I'm still not waking up quit as early as I would like to be. I haven't read a single chapter of my beloved historical fiction novel. I can't go shopping at nine at night and expect it to still be daylight outside with the neighbor children still running and shouting outside after a one hundred degree day. My family and I just added a new addition to our…

Serene Sunday - sometimes you can find serenity by keeping a journal and using it on a regular basis.



Many young girls have kept diaries and have written their secrets on pretty pastel pages. Young girls often find comfort in writing down their secret thoughts an dreams for the future. As those young girls become young women they read books on journaling and begin to write journals instead of diaries.…

Fighting Feelings

"The only way to fight a feeling is with a feeling." Rolin McCraty

I ran across this statement while reading One Thousand Gifts over the last two weeks. It stopped me in my tracks.

Feelings run so rampant these days. Look around our neighborhoods, schools, the television, etc. You'll see feeling not only in word, but in action as well.

What if we were to truly live out the statement McCraty gives us? Replacing anger with love, disappointment with contentment, anxiety…

Loyalty Vs. Blind Loyalty In Families

Hi Moms, I want to talk about loyalty vs. blind loyalty in families.



Loyalty is essential for genuine family solidarity.  But blind loyalty leads to family dysfunction.



A loyal family member is faithful to the family's traditions and honors its obligations. A loyal family member is emotionally present with support and encouragement during success or duress.   These unwavering devotions are admirable and observable: just look at how a loyal family member helps another member…

Finding Inner peace

It's been a long time since I have checked in over here. How is everyone? Did you survive spring break? I'm not sure that I did with a husband getting his ribs broken by a snow boarder and the usual shit that goes down at this time of year but....I did take an inner peace workshop, for the sake of the blog, and I have to say…

WHAT PEACE LOOKS LIKE. (TO ME, ANYWAY)

  •  

  • Today, as I peered through the camera lens & saw what I was about to capture, something dawned on me. The water was flat--nearly a motion in it. The atmosphere was calm--not even a breeze. And the combination of the two is what I'd surmise as peace on Earth: still breezes, still waters. You know what? This snapshot is also a picture of what my soul can look like…

Accepting Change Can Bring Moms Peace

In my younger days I was naive enough to think I could control change.  I’ve learned, but not quickly enough, that no one can control or stop change. And, here is an interesting little fact: Charles Darwin believed that those people who survive the ones who can adapt to ongoing change.  They are not necessarily the strongest or the smartest, but they are the survivors. That thought of survival brings me to today’s topic of change and how to understand it a little better.

First, that…

Thanksgiving Day Can Be Painful

When you lose someone you love, Thanksgiving Day feels burdensome and painful. When a brain tumor took away our precious Katie's life I dreaded that holiday. For seven years we served no rutabagas because they were Katie's favorite vegetable. The thought of their seasonal aroma wafting through our home without her in it was too much to bear.



I don't share this part of me today to make other moms sad. I share it because you are my extended family and I am yours. We are all fellow… Continue

Hello Peace... Welcome Back...

There was a time when I felt like my life was turned upside down. I had so many obstacles coming in my direction at one time: divorce, single parent to a toddler, increased bills and less money, bankrupt business, loss of a close friendship... Wow, that takes energy just thinking about it and when all of this came crashing at me at once, I completely lost balance and damn near my sanity.

These life experiences have taught me that we all have to go through obstacles in life, but the effects… Continue

Reclaiming Self

Lately, I have really been trying to be mindful, and have a mind-body connection because I feel disconnected inside. Logically I know stress can kill, but I put so much of myself into others, most days I often run on empty.…

Loving the Questions

Can you believe we are just almost half way through 2010??? Time has flown by in a blur of ups, downs, happies and sads. Such is life! It's senseless to fight time or the balance of things. And with that, I am peacefully content with where I am in life. I still have so many questions, but I love the questions. I still have so many contradictions, but I love them too. If the true value of the journey is in the ride, then I'm going to enjoy the ride for all of the traffic jams and breakdowns that… Continue

The Patience of a Quilt

I’ve made a few quilts now, and each one’s always a long endeavor. Much longer than I originally plan. I’m kind of a get-working-get-it-done mind, so quilts are a true test of my patience. You just can’t rush a quilt. And, to make a good one, you can’t just take a few pieces of material. It has to be made of many pieces, lots of stitches, and lots of love.



So, when the house was quiet this weekend, I laid out my Suriname quilt…a work in progress for this past year or so.…
