I think I am 
Cracked if not smashed
Dreams carved from heart
Altered forever

Love broke through
Despair and darkness
Light exposing pain

Broken but not destroyed
He broke in to chunks
The devastation mass
Become pieces to be released. 

Healing is a process.

The Present is a Present!

Today I am finally attempting to get back into the groove of writing regularly... maybe.

It's Five Minute Friday time with Lisa Jo Baker!

I figured I'd start small and go from here. Today the word is PRESENT.


At PRESENT I am doing prep work for a major addition to our family (shhhh... don't tell! It's a SECRET!), continuing to work toward my physical goals concerning my health and fitness levels, neck deep in little boys antics, focusing on making memories and building relationships with our sons, needing to plan a menu for next week that will not include chicken nuggets, and trying to get rid of the post-vacation blues (and bloat) from the last two weeks.

I feel the challenge of remaining PRESENT when all the questions, potty talk (ie:bathroom humor), altercations, and consequences tempt me to evaporate into a book, the internet, or Candy Crush.

When I see my life as a PRESENT it becomes less of a challenge and more of a gift. I must remember that. Every. Single. Day.


There it is, my first blog in almost 3 months. It's not brilliant, but its a start...

Who am I?

I have been married to my best friend for over 26 years and our children are 14, 13 and 10 years old. I have struggled with infertility, suffered the loss of a baby by miscarriage, and endured multiple career paths. I have experienced a crisis of faith that shook me to the core and lost dear friends to tragic death. I have a personal relationship with Jesus which is essential to surviving and even thriving in my circumstances. I hope you will be blessed by my heart and words. Thank you for being here..
