New Year Hope

2015 was a year of survival for me. When New Year’s rolled around a year ago, I made no resolutions—just hoped to survive the first year of my baby’s life, the transition back to work, the changes in my marriage and family, the freezing cold winter.

My Boy and Jesus

I have a little boy who has glittery eyes and a quick smile. When I carry him in my arms I kiss his soft face over and over, and I love the pudgy feel of his legs as they surround me. His giggle is infectious—I record it and could listen to it all day. He lies on his back, covers…

DWELL

DWELL. I’m good at dwelling on negative things. When I want to concentrate, I really can, and I go down a negative spiral and dwell hard at the bottom. It’s not living—it’s dwelling and plumbing the depths of negativity without seeing any “out.” I can dwell quite easily and well there—the path to dwelling in negativity is well-worn in my…
