We needed this sign in our house. What is it with bath towels on the floor?  The little things matter! Download it HERE.

Today I cried in the closet for my teen. For all of our teens. As I looked at my clothes through blurred tears, I cried out, “Lord, why won’t it stop? It just won’t stop!” I needed to get ready to go out, but I couldn’t concentrate on anything except the pit in my stomach. [...]

Teens are fun, hard, simple and baffling all at the same time.  They require extra {of everything}. I’ve been reading the teen experts to find out what makes teens feel loved.  What I hear over and over is that teens want to be heard.  They’ve been talked “at” for many years, now it’s their turn.

*Sarah sat cross-armed close to the car door. Her brown eyes darted back and forth as I spoke, “What are you doing this summer?” I asked, turning my head to look at her from the driver’s seat. “Are you talking to me?” she spurted. “Yes, you!” I smiled back. “Uhhhhh….. nothing?  Staying home?” she said [...]

Invisible Mothers It all began to make sense, the blank stares, the lack of response, the way one [...]

As my fingers tap the keys, one of my dear, treasured friends is in the hospital for brain aneurisms.  Last monday she went in to the Doctor after having strange symptoms in her head.  On wednesday she underwent dangerous brain surgery. Miraculously, the two aneurisms in her brain did not burst.  It was a gut-wrenching process.  Tonight we [...]

For those of you who grew up in the 80’s, I don’t have to explain tennis shoe roller skates, nor the sheer awesomeness of their roller power. One glorious Christmas morning, my eyes locked on a shiny new pair, complete with white racer stripes and bright yellow wheels. What more could a feathered bang girl, [...]

Spiderman whizzed past me in a blur.  It was common to have several superheroes in my house.  Spidey proudly stuck out his chest and slid into a pose just under the catwalk. At this very moment, my toddler, standing some 15 feet above us, pushed a 5lb. metal weight under the rail.  I watched in [...]
