Juggling 7 children, a full-time job, and a personal life is challenging to say the least.  Needless to say, sometimes my daughter's felt like they could not, or maybe should not ask for my time.  So, to adjust for this I built time into my schedule to spend time with each of them one-on-one.  Initially,...

Introspection

Yesterday, my 5-year old (Kayleigh) walked into the kitchen while I was finishing off the salad that would accompany dinner.  Mind you, this was probably her third trip into the kitchen to remind me that she's starving.  As I thinly sliced fresh mushrooms to add to it she said, "Mommy, your putting mushrooms in the...

Is your mindfield a minefield?

For the last week, I have been meditating on a song by Cory Asbury called Reckless Love.  Though I have listened to this song repetitively throughout the week, I have still not learned all of the words.  Some of them still escape me, not because they are difficult to learn, but instead because they have...

Grateful Much?

A little over a year ago, I saw my dad for the first time in more than 10 years, which does not say a lot as before that I had not seen him since I was about 8.  Like many children, I grew up without my dad.  I knew he existed and for a large... Continue Reading →

Live

    The other day my best friend, nearly two thousand miles away, watched as his mom slipped away.  My heart aches for the pain he feels.  This digital world we live in eases so many burdens but it cannot match the warmth of a love-filled hug or a quick hand squeeze just to say...
