Human nature is a funny thing. No matter how many times we see the hard stuff of life happen to others, somewhere in us thinks “those things don’t happen to my people.” We all have *our* people. Those who we have done life with. As Mamas, these people are especially important. We share our children’s… Continue reading Needing “My People”

Sometimes those crashes are small and last a few hours, others last days or weeks. On this particular evening, I was journaling and… Continue reading I’m Doing Whatever It Takes To Be Well… Including Losing Almost Everything I Own
In 10 school days, I will be a homeschool mom. I am equal parts excited and intimidated. The “plan” had always been to homeschool.

It's been kind of a stressful few days here in the trees. For a few weeks I've been feeling run down and tired. It hasn't been enough for me to feel like a trip to do the Doctor was in order but mostly felt like my body was asking for more rest. I was sleeping… Continue reading The unexplained illness….
