Magic Matters-There’s No Denying It

Without the magic of it all, what is the point of it all? Think about it. What would be missing from a world without the mystery and the magic? Well let's think; Santa, Rudolf, Frosty, The Little Drummer Boy, cookies and carrots and presents AND family gatherings... The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, baskets filled with… Continue reading Magic Matters-There’s No Denying It

Mindset Matters Most!

We were not honoring our true family legend at the time.  Life was moving fast and happening to us, we were not living it. I have found that it takes an incredible amount of clarity, bravery, and faith to make the changes needed to continue to live the life you are meant to live.

You are in Charge 

Fighting for the needs of my children while battling depression and anxiety was the hardest thing I have ever done.

The courage needed to fix it and the work that is required to change is now the ongoing battle. I know it will be a part of my life forever.

Come On Down!!!

At some point in May, I kept the boys home from school. Just because I wanted to spend the day with them. The alarm went off at 5:15 as per my new norm. I quickly reached over and turned it right off. My warm, cozy, sleeping boys were the bookends holding me in bed. I felt… Continue reading Come On Down!!!

I Want To Remember….

I want to remember their little raspy voices and the way they mispronounce words "awdonge" "renember" I want to remember cheek hugs and the soft melding of our faces while dancing around to "The Ants are Marching", the love we share reaching down to the deepest part of my soul during these dances around our… Continue reading I Want To Remember….
