Show Up in January.
January Focus:  Show up for health and wellness. I spent the last half of 2018 in and out of different doctor's offices and had a ton of tests and procedures performed--all indicating that I was, in fact, in pretty good health.  I ran a marathon in November...

2019: Show up.
If The Holiday is on, I'm going to stop what I'm doing and watch it.  I've loved it for years--the soundtrack, the actors, the dreamy, snowy English cottage.  One of my favorite lines from the movie is when sweet Arthur (elderly film maker) is telling heart...

Small Victories
Sometimes your heart is left a little raw and tender.  Maybe a situation didn't work out quite the way you wanted it to.  Maybe you've got so much you're dealing with and you're not sure how you got here to begin with.  Maybe someone decided they would rath...

The same old thing until it's not.
A few months ago I agreed to be a member of the Stretched Too Thin launch team and had a book to share with another working mom.  I put up a photo on my social media and almost 30 moms commented that they were interested in reading it as well--moms who are ...

Hurricane Florence.
This morning we are waiting for Hurricane Florence to make her landfall somewhere on the Carolina coast.  Two days ago we were told our area would fall in the "catastrophic" category, but yesterday morning the models shifted the storm further south.  It is ...

A loss for words and not enough information.
I'm sitting on my couch and dreaming about having a beautiful screen porch as a writing spot.  I dream about writing a whole book, given the time and space, but sadly I'm not even sure what I would write about.  And the last thing this world needs is anothe...

The last drop.
This mama is tired.  I could tell you about my non-stop schedule.  I could tell you about my calendar.  I could tell you about the many things on my plate and how I feel like I'm one moment away from dropping them all. I could tell you that most days I'm do...

Why?
I recently spent a few days in Ocracoke, NC while I was involved in a session at NCCAT (seriously, any and every NC teacher should figure out a way to go).  The session centered around teacher leadership and the many ways we can lead in our classrooms, scho...

Mama A's Favorite Things: January 2018
I remember as a
teenager (and even as a college student and young teacher) trying to get home in
the afternoons to watch the Oprah show at 4pm. 
I loved watching her sing along with her musical guests, interacting
with her audience, and I thought she was a ...

2018.
Let us remember our
past, but let us recognize we are standing in the present. Let us embrace the
things that have been placed in our laps and let us choose to hold them with
great care. Let us stand a little
braver, a little stronger, and with a little mor...
