…in which we focus on the micro to affect the macro.
So I’m gonna be really honest. (You know, because it’s my blog and stuff, and that’s what I do.) The idea of choosing a single word to focus on has been increasingly popular the last several years. I’ve done it for the last two. (Present in 2014 and First in 2015.) But… I still don’t […]
There’s a lime-sized baby floating around in my basketball-sized belly. I popped over a week ago, well before the end of trimester 1. Looking like 5 months at 11 weeks. Thanks, fourth-slash-fifth baby! My fears for the lime/baby have been unreasonably large for the last twenty-four hours. The story I’m making up is that I’ll go […]
It’s getting to be resolution time. I don’t typically do resolutions as such, but I do try to spend some of my downtime in January being intentional about the upcoming year. But before I go there, I’d like to take some time to look back at this past year to see what worked (and what didn’t) so I don’t miss anything big I was supposed to be learning. (And since this is my place to document and process, you get to take a look with me!)
I stumbled upon this post many years ago. I hope you’ll take the time to read it. Here’s how this truth has saved my heart countless hours of struggle. I hope it lodges in your head and heart the way it’s lodged in mine. Here are the some of the ways it plays out in […]
Hello again, there, my girl. (Did you know I love the excuse to write you a big long letter? To put together many of the words that I think about you all at once? This is fun.) Happy birthday, baby. Did you know you’re beautiful? Seriously. Inside and out, regardless of whether or not you have a […]
This doesn’t very much matter, as far as content is concerned. There are a couple of features on wordpress that I like, and apparently I can import the old blog, so nothing is lost, right? Well, except a lot of time figuring out a new site. But whatever.
[Disclaimer: This post is fairly long (for me) and personal. Maybe to the point of overshare. Like the first post, my goal here is not to describe the general experience of miscarriage, but rather to bring it one more small step into the light. By sharing my story I hope to make it easier for […]
Um, guys? We need to talk. Since the attacks on Paris last week, I’ve seen an alarming amount of talk about refugees-in-quotation-marks. How we can’t let “those people” in or “they” will wreak the same kind of havoc here. In my circles, this opinion is being voiced by a minority, which is good. But that […]
You guys. Have you seen this quote? Go ahead. It’s long. I’ll wait. I’ve seen it pop up here and there lately. And I love it. It’s hugely encouraging… Much of the work I do feels a little disappointing to me. At the beginning of the year, I took inventory of the things that […]
