You know that horribly whiny Leanne Womack song, “I Hope You Dance?” The one where she wishes all these great things for either her ex-lover or a kid or whomever? I thought parenting would feel a lot like that: the wanting so many things for your…
I've been thinking about the things I don't want for my children more than the things I do want for them.

I possess a photographic memory. Some argue that such a thing does not really exist. I invite those dissenters to spend a day or two or twelve in my brain. I can recall every outfit worn on every first day of school ever, college and kindergarten…

I can recall every outfit worn on every first day of school ever, college and kindergarten included. I remember the shirt my grandmother wore the … Continue reading "Blurry"

Living through the holidays with anxiety feels familiar to me. I escape to a bedroom or a bathroom sometime midday and practice some deep breathing or mindfulness. Sometimes I go for a walk. It feels legitimately overwhelming at times, but I can survive.…

Today my daughter turned 13. I’ve been struggling in the past week and a half leading up to this day. When she left after a visit last week, I felt depleted, empty, and overwhelmingly anxious. I did finally schedule a therapy appointment for this coming…

In Hong Kong the flowers are delivered in ample quantities which altogether have a misty aroma and they are accompanied by baskets, balloons, vases etc which makes a perfect combination and so people <a href=" http://www.flowershongkong24x7.com/Christmas-Gifts-HongKong.asp " target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none; font-weight:bold" title=" Send Christmas Flowers to Hong Kong "> Send Christmas Flowers to Hong Kong </a>

Dear BigBrother, You’re eleven. Eleven. Okay. Just had to say that first. You’ve been most awesome this year, I must let you know. I watched you come into your own on the baseball field. You learned how to keep going when you made a mistake, both on the…
Dear BigBrother, You’re eleven. Eleven. Okay. Just had to say that first. You’ve been most awesome this year, I must let you know. I watched you come into your own on the baseball field.

Two years ago today, I almost died. I wanted to die. I didn’t. When I realized two weeks ago I’d be flying alone—all day—on this anniversary date, I panicked. Alone? All day? Not great. When I realized this particular November 9 fell the day after what I…
I'm grateful to be here, two years later.

This is the story of how Marley became a Hatfield. I’ve wanted a second dog for approximately eleven thousand years. Last year, I set the boys on task to convince their father that our family needed a second dog. It didn’t work very well. He muttered…
We got another dog. His name is Marley. Dog dog dog.

I don’t often write about my role as a firefighter’s wife anymore as it isn’t the main narrative in my life. For various reasons, I distanced myself from focusing on it as doing so caused excess anxiety. Honestly, I struggle the most on the days my…

And on the last day of November—National Adoption Month—I decided to write about adoption. It’s not that I haven’t written about it this month. I’ve put pen to paper a number of times to journal experiences and feelings surrounding adoption and our family unit. But I come here and the words disappear. In fact, I … Continue reading From Interesting to Inspiring: This Is OUR Adoption Story

We all have some hard days ahead. For various reasons. But nothing is certain except change, and sometimes change is hard. So. Hard days ahead. Here’s a tip though: We can do hard things. More importantly, we all bring different gifts and strengths to the…
