    Peace in the Storm

    It’s been raining here… a lot. And, it’s been really cold. Not really what one hopes for near the end of June! Being a mom of two little kids, I treasure all of those outdoor activities that promise to exhaust the kiddos while also providing endless entertainment and lots of good old Vitamin D for Momma. I’m sure I’m just preaching to the choir here on this one, am I right?

    Sometimes We All Need A Little Push

    Let’s face it, no matter where you are on your journey in this life, nearly all of us have experienced isolation. Isolation, by definition, is to be removed from or apart from or having minimal contact with others. There are many ways we can find ourselves isolated; we may find we are isolated from social environments, isolated financially, isolated from being in a work atmosphere, or even geographically isolated having been relocated or moved. While I knew growing my family would change the dynamics of our home and social life, some of the isolation I’ve felt at different times certainly wasn’t anything I was prepared for. Let me just first…
