Birthday Love for Baby Girl

On this day 28 years ago, I awoke thinking ‘is this labor’?  I was extremely unsure although all of the signs were there.  I was excited but scared as I was but 21 years old.  Her transition into this world was a bit nerve-wrecking.  I will never forget the look on my husbands face as […]

… overcoming my hate for math.

Ok THAT might be asking too much.  Yet I’ve signed up and tonight began my journey to being a college grad.  It’s not pretty at all.  Within the two hour class span I went from ‘I can do this!‘ to “I can’t do this‘ to ‘I will trudge on through‘ to ‘how do people get […]

… home is where the heart is.

Over the last several months I’ve noticed two or three homeless people ‘setting up’ house, beneath the freeway overpass. They have two tents on the sidewalk with some space between them.  In the space between them, they have a dresser, a lamp, and other home essentials.  A month or so ago, I saw the ‘homeowners’ […]

A new journey…

One of my only regrets in life is not obtaining a degree.  I’m not all depressed about it or anything – I simply chose a different path.  But.  It’s on my ‘list’. Unfortunately – I didn’t really believe it was achievable.  I’ve felt that I’m just past that stage of life and needed to move […]

By Design

Today my ears were blessed to hear the sweetest sentiment I’ve heard in my creative life. It was roughly 2:30pm and the intern I’ve been working with for roughly two weeks let out a heavy sigh when he said it and it was music to my ears. The project was for this young man, a […]

Unstoppable

There are moment when, I am without doubt. I feel secure. I recognize my value. My contribution. I remember Whose I am. I know what I’m capable of. The process seems clear. ——– Those are the rare moments when I feel unstoppable!
