Hell is where the heart is

Talking about rape, abortion, adoptions - also the last 20 years of my life. Don't read it if you don't want to read about yucky stuff. Go anywhere else on my blog, there's plenty.

What is love?

If you've been following my writing for any length of time, there has been a pull for me in the realms of spirituality, psychology, and philosophy. To me, they are all synonyms for the study of love, and that is what I would like to write about today. I believe love is a four-letter word... Continue Reading →

Phew

I wrote this on my personal Facebook, and I think it belongs here too: Since I did reiki, I've had a lot of emotions trying to break loose - sometimes it happens with different yoga positions too. I am not great at handling my emotions. I tend to diagnose them and ignore them or whatever.... Continue Reading →

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #12

Continued from Yesterday... Have you ever thought about how you treat yourself?

In everything, I have to maintain balance.  I read somewhere about weight loss, "You did not gain all... Continue Reading →

Lost Soul

The words Lost Soul have been on my mind a lot lately.  Those words have always resonated with me, because it's just how I feel.  More often than not, I feel as though I am wandering around searching for meaning in everything.  It hit me a night or two ago that I have been so... Continue Reading →

Erin Go Bah!

It never ceases to amaze me how perception, memory, and reality affect dates.  This once was my favorite day of the year, but now it has taken on a different meaning altogether. 13 years ago, the man who would be my husband and father of my three kids stood in front of hundreds of people on...
