The Truth About You

June 29, 2018

Tuck in. Talk. Pray. And make sure to say the “signature phrase”. Bedtime is rapidly evolving with a 12 year-old daughter in the midst of puberty. It used to involve story time, holding her hand and lying next to her in her bed until she fell asleep. But it’s always included that one thing I never want her to forget. “You are loved & special,” […]

The Best Gift Of All

May 12, 2018

Your belly became the place I first got to know you. The thump of your heartbeat, your beautiful voice, the rhythm of your soul. You made me feel safe and gave me a place to grow. You were there. I made my way into this brave new world. Wide eyed and uncertain. Bright lights, big smiling faces, and cool crisp air. You were there. I […]

A Poem Of Thanks This Good Friday

March 30, 2018

How did it feel To leave perfection To come from heaven To face rejection? How did it feel To know what was coming The trial, the judgment, The abuse and the shunning? How did it feel Asking your dear friends to pray And finding them napping Unable to stay awake? How did it feel To wait for the day When one you discipled Would be […]

Grace For The Holiday Griever (Part 2 of 3)

December 11, 2017

  Part 2: Honoring Your Loved One With Grace We got the Christmas boxes down from the attic and started unpacking. A surge of emotion hit as I pulled out our four stockings (Doug, Kristin, Sydney, and Jenson). It was our first Christmas without our son Jenson, and it flashed me back to our first dinner out after he passed away. “How many in your […]

A Message of Love

February 8, 2017

From the board outside my daughter’s school with her name flashing in recognition for the leadership award she’d won, my car was drawn like a magnet to the last place I saw my other child Jenson.  His gravesite. I sat on the ground next to his tombstone, my way in this world of being as close to him as possible, feeling torn between the dichotomies love brings […]

Role Reversal

May 1, 2016

The doctor told us I’d only be in the hospital one night assuming no complications. My nine year old daughter Sydney was adamant.  She would be the one who stayed the night.  “I’m your daughter, so I should get to stay even though I’m a kid.” I let her know the first night might be rough, and she’d probably be really bored. “That’s okay mommy.  You’ll need […]

I’ll Take Care of You

April 24, 2016

The waiting is the hardest part.  I’m better once I know … It started Christmas Day with a seemingly innocent movement.  Hanging the stocking on the mantel had never been an issue before, but this time it triggered a consequence that far outweighed the simple action.  A total neck and back lock-up.  Guess I’m just getting old. Then other strange symptoms came from out of nowhere as my […]

Golden Anniversary

September 20, 2015

  It was a celebration … a golden celebration.  A milestone most never reach.  Fifty years of marriage. “What kind of party do you want?” I asked my mom. “I just want my family to be together,” she answered. And together we were.  We hosted at our house.  Sydney loves a party, so we went into serious party planning mode.  Balloons, cake, decorations.  A gourmet […]
