Teaching Love

It's been awhile... I've been digesting life. Slowly. I wish I could tell my daughter things to make her life easier. I wish that I could sit down with her and catch her eye and she would hear me. Our relationship isn't quite like that. She doesn't enjoy eye contact and sitting still for more… Continue reading Teaching Love

5 items to add to your Facebook Feed

I use Facebook much differently than many people. The cool thing about FB is that it is smart and figures out what you look at, and brings more of that.  I used to pay attention to the drama of people I knew decades ago, or the endless pictures of kids (which I still do) but… Continue reading 5 items to add to your Facebook Feed

The art of creating fear

We haven't had cable TV in about a year. It just was an excessive expense with the accident, and the chaos so we cut cable and occasionally rent a redbox or find a movie or documentary at the library. Which means, we don't watch the news.

Be the light, find the magic

I've learned some valuable lessons, OK that's the understatement of the century. Each day is hard. It's hard to wake… Continue reading Be the light, find the magic

I stop, contemplate, assess, and my statistical… Continue reading Love v. Fear – for the win

a Better world.

This morning I woke up a little...better. Head a little clearer, hope a little brighter.  I've not been posting much as I had a really hard time with my last set back. Losing ground, at this point, was just more than I could bear. But all things pass. Today, I'm feeling a bit more Sunshine.… Continue reading a Better world.

Here’s to a good Shake Up

Desperately seeking L.O.B. (life outside bed). Well, the surgery didn't exactly go as planned. Back to 100% bedrest. Back to the beginning.  It's only been 4 months... And this go round, 2 full weeks in bed. It's laughable really. You know how crazy you get not being able to get out of bed for 2… Continue reading Here’s to a good Shake Up
