Quiet and Rest for the Still Grieving Heart

Quiet and Rest for the Still Grieving Heart

I just want to do. I’m always in need of a project, or a cause. Something big, something tough, something worthy that I can sink my teeth into and pour all of my energy into and get consumed by. Hours of toil, mind-numbing problem-solving, energy-draining effort – they all make me feel productive. Useful. Alive. […]

Noni’s Move

Noni’s Move

I have the best mother-in-law ever. And, no, all you doubting in-law-phobes, that was not sarcastic. I know that most people cannot claim this. Yes, I have heard horror mother-in-law stories, and heard the laments of many a wife’s Mama’s Boy’s woes. Have to say, this is one area in life in which God gave […]

A Year of the Sweet Spot

A Year of the Sweet Spot

2 birthdays, within 5 days of each other. My oldest and youngest children. Yet only one of them was I able to celebrate actually with the child. Having these birthdays so close – DD1’s 8th and Dominic’s 1st – has gotten me thinking about this year. I did a photo shoot with DD1, as I […]

The T-Shirt I Want

The T-Shirt I Want

Survival We’ve survived. I feel like I need one of those t-shirts. You know, the ones that you get when you’ve made it through breast cancer? I feel like I need one that says, “I’ve survived the loss of my baby”. I’ll bet those wouldn’t be really popular. Today marks the end of “Dominic week”. […]

3 Days

3 Days

July 31st, a new family celebration Your birthday, the day you were born. But another date looming, August 3rd, – shouldn’t be – A mere 3 days past, we now mourn.   Ephemeral, fleeting; life hardly started Wings clipped before learning to fly Potentiality abbreviated by finality; Hello truncated too soon by goodbye. 3 days […]

To Dominic on Your Birthday: The Measure of a Year

To Dominic on Your Birthday: The Measure of a Year

How do we measure a year? In birthdays. This one – your first – what does it measure? The ways we have loved you, without you, and how we have known pain unimagined, heartbreak, the stone cold hard reality of death at our door. Dreams ripped apart, theology torn Fists to the sky, fallen souls […]

Dominic’s Diaper Genie

Dominic’s Diaper Genie

We are selling our baby stuff. I have kept the diapers that people gave me for Dominic in his closet. Until now. Thinking that we would imminently have more children and I would need them. It’s been a year. For a variety of very important reasons, the Lord has made it clear that we are […]

3 Second Salisbury Steak Thank Yous

3 Second Salisbury Steak Thank Yous

Thank Yous and Salisbury Steak It’s an idea I got from my sister, who got it from the amazing Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the “Essential 55” rules used by award-winning educator Ron Clark to “take apathetic students and transform them into award-winning scholars” is this: “Always say thank you when someone […]

Turning Milk Into Wine

Turning Milk Into Wine

It’s been called “liquid gold”, and for good reason. Breastmilk, that amazing, life-giving gift that increases children’s health, encourages mother-child bonding, and may even increase children’s IQ. And it’s so very precious – when there is not enough, there are very limited ways to get more, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. The Milk Miracles […]
