Book Review: ‘Room of Tears’ by Linda Merlino

Room of Tears is a spiritual story about heroes, miracles, and faith. It’s also a story about love, death, and tragedy.

In the summer of 2041, 71-year-old Diane O’Connor invites Friar Antonio Ortiz to her home in Queens. The reason is nothing short of mysterious: she has a request for him, which entails giving him a letter and a recording…

Coping With Sandy Hook

 

Like every other parent in America, I sent my kids off to school yesterday morning with a giant lump in my throat.  The horrific events of Friday's mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School were at the forefront of my mind as I hugged each of my twins as tightly as I could.  A small part of me even wished they were sick so they could stay safe at home with me.  However,…

Calling In Afraid

Excerpt from my public blog....An Unfinished Parent

 

I held my teacup in one hand while holding the steering wheel in my other as I barely inched forward in bumper to bumper traffic this morning.  The coastal mist settled on my windshield and the sunrise was nearly obliterated by a

passing cloud. My seven year old sat in the back seat like any other day, wiling through the half hour freeway commute to…

Telling Kids about the Sandy Hook Tragedy

In our home, we don’t watch television much and there are many days where the boys don’t watch it at all.  On Friday morning, I woke and got straight to work posting our Christmas Giveaway.  The boys were still sleeping and I was sitting at the computer with a cup of coffee on WordPress, finishing things up.  I’m honestly not sure if the event occurred before or after I posted the giveaway, but I want you to know that I would never have posted it had I known what was going on.  I wouldn’t…

Tragic Accident at Pgh Zoo

A tragic accident happened at our local Pittsburgh Zoo over the weekend.  I struggled with posting something about it for fear of what would happen in the comment section being that our platforms are ‘open’.  If you haven’t heard the story, a 2 year old boy, Maddox Derkosh, was lifted by his mother onto a railing at the African Painted Dog Exhibit.  As you can see below, Maddox wears glasses and his mother was just trying to give him a better view of the dogs.  When she lifted him onto the…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…
