My Voice

Life became too heavy for me. It's not a big surprise since the current situation of our world, countries and neighborhoods are just that: heavy. Like a giant boulder, we pushed just enough to see what lies underneath; full of creepy, crawling things and damp darkness. It hasn't been pretty, even if it has been... Continue Reading →

Honesty Is The Best Policy?

Sometimes we get take-out for dinner and find an empty park to eat at. It is a great way to get our little kiddos outside and run around a bit. (And I always have high hopes it will wear them out before bedtime.) On one of these fine evenings, in an effort to be good... Continue Reading →

Queen

I was working while my baby boy was playing with blocks. He excitedly brought the one pictured above over to me. "Mama, you!" he smiled and pointed at the picture. I couldn't help but laugh, "That's right baby, the Queen." I have taught him well. Don't tell his dad that he brought the block with... Continue Reading →

Together Even When Apart

I've never been much of a cook. I mean, I know how to read a recipe and put together a meal, it's just not something I love to do. The majority of my siblings are gourmet when it comes to the kitchen. For family dinners, I'm usually assigned chips or a salad. We had a... Continue Reading →

I really like new beginnings: New Year's, the start of the school year (even though I'm not in school), flipping to a new month on the calendar, the beginning of a new season, my birthday. I really love the feeling of starting fresh that comes with a new beginning. It gives me new energy and... Continue Reading →

It has been a little nerve-wracking, figuring out how to home school. However, I am oddly not feeling the intense anxiety the accompanies me for far lesser circumstances. Truth be told, I have...

Snowflakes

It was freezing outside, but I stood out in the cold with just a sweater on to catch the perfect snowflakes fluttering down from the sky. Often snowstorms hammer down with white small balls or clumps, covering the ground. However, this afternoon, the snowfall was light and I considered myself lucky to catch the detailed...

The Road of Life

I'm feeling nostalgic today. Ten years ago today, my husband asked me out on our very first date. We had been friends over the summer and I thought it was just that, friends going out for dinner and a fun evening. I think my husband thought similarly. Not many first dates are considered magical and... Continue Reading →

1 Year, 2 Months and 8 Days

That is how long it has been since I posted on this blog, my little internet home. I didn't have the intention of going so long without typing out a few thoughts here and there, but for those who are wondering, let me explain where my focus has been during this past 1 year, 2... Continue Reading →
