Even Healing Hurts

  “Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.” – Rachel Naomi Remen   It’s almost the end of January and I for one, can tell you that the fastest…

Just Be Enough: I’ll Show You Mine, If You Show Me Yours

    I told you, I don’t make RESOLUTIONS or say that I’m going to live another way this year as oppossed to last. But one thing I do love, with all my heart, are WORDS. Quotes and phrases, sentences and expressions that communicate who I am and what I’m made of. When Elena asked me to…

I Can…Say Your Name

        It took me four years to get Pregnant with Giovanni and Jacob. Years where my faith was tested, my hopes were dashed and my spirit was emptied month after month, cycle after cycle and year after year. When my sons were born my one and only prayer was, “Please don’t take…

Just Be Enough: Saying THANK YOU

  Something that has always puzzled me all my life is why, when I am in special need of help, the good deed is usually done by somebody on whom I have no claim.  ~William Feather   The Simple truth is that I have been having a really hard time being “ENOUGH” the past nine…

Just Be Enough: The Non-Planner’s Guide to the Future

  I don’t plan. I have family and friends that love to buy me calendars and encourage me to “use them”. I hate writing on calendars,  mostly because I’d rather just look at them and make up a story from the pictures. Instead I use Outlook as much as I can and do my very best to remember…

Just Be Enough: Listening

   My journey to become a mother was a long one, a sad one (at times) but it is truly one of the greatest adventures of my life. Back in February, I wanted to share some of that story in my own words, to leave a piece of it for Giovanni & Jacob to see…

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JUST.BE.ENOUGH!

      It started with a meme link and turned into a place of standing taller, feeling better, being ENOUGH. JUST.BE.ENOUGH is a year old. Elena, our fearless leader, has created a supportive and encouraging site that teaches us , every day, about the power of a shared experience. I love being a writer for…

Just Be Enough: I’m Every Color?

  This week at JUST.BE.ENOUGH the prompt is “Something I secretly like about myself”   I got an email last week from my amazing friend Tiina. She has been reading my drafts for Gathering Buttercups before I hit publish and visiting me here at my desk to see what part of the fiction is actually…

Just Be Enough: Who Me?

   “What helps you live like a Champion?”   Champion is not a word that I identify with. “Champions“, eat their WHEATIES and get Gold Medals. Champions also sweat and exercise, they live to push themselves physically and mentally. I tend to scoff at that kind of exertion and sit down on the couch with…

Around the Bonfire and the Blogosphere

   There are some bloggers that just make me smile (and even a little envious) with how much they accomplish and what they teach me. Gigi of Kludgy Mom is one of those people for me. Supportive, Lovely, Funny, SMART and pretty too. A while ago, an email landed in my inbox, and I was…
