To me, that’s saying that sure, my legs are essentially wet noodles, and my lungs kinda suck at being lungs—but, I’m alive. And my mind is still sharp. Well, less sharp after having two babies, but still… I get to wake up and spend my days with my two beautiful babies. I get to enjoy […]
We’re working really hard, but it’s easy to keep our family as our focus. My job isn’t overly demanding, and my husband is at home with our kids all but 12 hours per week. Our children aren’t involved in a bunch of extra-curricular activities because they’re one and four years old. Right now, my children […]

Here are some things I’ve found as I’ve volunteered: I meet new friends. I grow and develop skills I didn’t even know I had. And I have fun – serving others takes the focus off my problems and allows me to see how I can help others in their struggles.
If you want to throw a great party, I’ve got two words for you: Kentucky Derby! Let’s say you (like me) know next to nothing about horse racing. Once upon a time, my husband turned to me and said “everyone hosts Christmas parties and New Year’s parties. Let’s make our thing the Derby.” Umm, okay? […]
