Finding the Magic in Unanswered Prayers

I recently re-read the book, The Alchemist by author, Paulo Coelho. I try to read it every few years. He was on to something when he wrote "every blessing ignored, becomes a curse."

Don’t Be a Tree

Fighting for the needs of my children while battling depression and anxiety is the hardest thing I have ever done. It is a perpetual roller coaster of emotions without any sense of stability or predictability at all.

Slow Down Mommy 

We are rushing from moment to moment unable to focus or be present. We are losing our memory, our patience, and the point.

What’s Your Currency?

We are so collectively distracted by getting and going, and having, and showing that we are not present enough to witness each other as we are learning, and loving, and growing.

Being from New England means you get to enjoy the change of seasons. It means that you witness the trees transform from green to a beautiful mix of reds, oranges, and yellows. It means you watch football with the windows open while you cook a hearty pot roast and and bake an apple pie.  It… Continue reading Sixty and Sunny….
