Siblings

This is one of my favorite pictures ever…a moment. My kids, siblings, a blip in time that only the two people in that very hug understand. I like to think it’s about letting go of annoyances…and just experiencing one emotion…love. Happy National Siblings Day. Siblings, a loaded subject, there is just so much there. Bonding,Continue reading “Siblings”

Being Ridiculous

A few months ago I was interviewed about my blog, then the story got pushed back and I kind of forgot about it. I found out it was in print when my phone exploded with well wishes. As I said to a friend, it was both lovely and horrific to be in the spotlight. MyContinue reading “Being Ridiculous”

Getting films from the ER visit proved to be like being part of the Hunger Games…and like Katness, I won. The work week ended with us gettingContinue reading “On the bright side…”

I say the pleasure because our “baby” is almost 23 and she is really spectacular when it comes to not complaining about the big things…the little things get to her…but the big ones, she is magic. LongContinue reading “ER Stories”

Women

A friend posted a question in honor of International Women’s Day…name five women who have influenced your life. No relatives, nobody who is currently active in their pursuit of goodness…five women from the past. So I replied, hit return…and of course two seconds later I wanted to edit. How could I have left off FridaContinue reading “Women”
