Moment of Truth Monday

Talking on the phone is one of my least favorite activities of all times. As in, I want to hide when my phone starts ringing [not exaggerating, but please don’t feel the need to test this theory]. Okay, that’s not entirely true. As a teen, I’d stretch that wall-mounted phone cord beyond its limits and…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Dear Daughter: Words to Live By

Dear Daughter, From your earliest days, you were marked for leadership. Your drive and tenacity to master skills and complete tasks were unmatched. What I used to call independence, I now understand as leadership and determination. Your fierce loyalty to your favorite things [your blanket, stuffed animal, and sippy cup], was reflective of the passion…… Continue reading Dear Daughter: Words to Live By

Proper table settings make me nervous. While I distinctly remember the lesson in Brownies, I also remember panic moving in simultaneously. Did the spoon and knife go together?

Though words are freely given to each of us, we have a responsibility to steward them well. When I first shared this dream, I invited you…… Continue reading T-shirts and a Contest [oh, my]

Moment of Truth Monday

Relationships are both work and reward. Without the work {which often consists of an unmatched level of vulnerability and humility}, the reward of growing deeper in love and compassion is often missed. I have experienced a lot of “fringe-ships” over the years. I’m generally close enough to know just enough to feel like I’m known,…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Release the Outcome [#sowkind]

Outcome [noun]: something that follows as a result or consequence. Anticipating an outcome is second nature for me. I invest more time than I care to admit considering all the things before moving forward. When I am dependent on the outcome, I often forfeit the pursuit. I become paralyzed in my “need to know” state…… Continue reading Release the Outcome [#sowkind]
