Welcome

The most powerful words in the English language are, ‘Me, too.’” – Anne Lamott

I have opinions about a whole bunch of stuff. I bet you do too. The problem is that sometimes I don’t know what my opinion is exactly; I just know I have one! When that happens, I turn to people close to me to figure it out. That’s what I’m hoping to build here—a community of people who are trying to figure themselves, and this crazy thing we call life, out.

I want to riff on all kinds of topics: being a wife, mother, friend, teacher. Some of our conversations will be easy and fun, others not so much. I learned a lot on my life journey over the last couple of years that I hope can bring people hope and inspiration. I’d like to share what I learned with you, here.

Please join me. Let’s be each other’s, Me too. We may not always understand or agree with different points of view, but we can always be each other’s support system.

Some Things That I Love

“A miracle is not defined by an event. A miracle is defined by gratitude.” (Here If You Need Me, p. 181)

After my mom died and three short weeks later my daughter got sick, I had a hard time remembering the concept of gratitude. Fear and anger obscured the abundance still present in my life, and I resented anyone who told me to look beneath the surface to find a positive in our situation. I was convinced there was none. Part of my journey over the last couple of years has been to cultivate a practice . . .
