UFO September 18 2019, 0 Comments
A friend was talking about
a project she was working on and after describing
it she said "But it's a UFO"
Yes a UFO - and Unfinished Object.
I mean, love that!
So cute... September 18 2019, 0 Comments
Love the simplicity of this.
Can you imagine being a kiddo
getting to sleep here - so cute!
I find parenting difficult.
I think it's difficult for me because I often feel
two consistent things -
1) That I am the only one experiencing the things
2) And fear enters my mind and I can go from A to Z.
A few days ago I was experiencing those
two thoughts over and over.
(I have a severe case of OCD so my thoughts can get
stuck on a "record player" and
repeat themselves until I find a way to snap out of it)
Anyway, my phone rang and it was one of my best friends from growing
up in Houston. She is still in Houston and raising kiddos of her own.
She asked if I could talk and by the tone in her voice I knew it was more of
can I listen than talk.
It was the craziest thing - EVERYTHING she was venting about was
exactly what I was mentally obsessing about - literally every last bit.
It was nuts!
It came to my attention after our conversation that the phone call was a
"God Wink" for me...a reminder that we all have
more in common than we probably realize and we're not alone.
Really grateful for that.

Fall September 11 2019, 0 Comments
Do you pick up on the arrival of Fall in September?
Something about the light changes.
Something about the breeze changes.
The sound of fallen leaves changes.
I literally get giddy.
It's a sign of the best is yet to come -
Enjoy this new arrival...it's such a gift!

The Past September 11 2019, 0 Comments
I'm really trying to be aware of my self talk
these days - I know, sounds nuts, but it's true.
You can have so many thoughts run thru your head constantly -
right? I mean I literally can go from
"There is dust on my computer - To did I send that email to the school -
To why can't I forgive that person - To salmon or crab cakes for dinner"
All in about 1 second.
I don't know if that is a woman trait or just a human trait or maybe just
a me trait.
Anyway, sometimes my thoughts can turn against me - to all the negative
aspects in life and I'm trying to redirect those.
The past - mistakes in the past - can linger longer than the all the positive
in the past.
Saw this quote this morning and I feel like it nailed it - enjoy!
"THE MOST POWERFUL ANCHOR ON OUR POTENTIAL TO SOAR HIGH IN LIFE IS THE PAST. THE PAST CONTAINS THE DEAD WEIGHT OF EXPERIENCE, LEARNED BELIEFS AND ALL OUR MISTAKES. LIFE CANNOT TRULY BEGIN UNTIL WE ARE ABLE TO SAY GOODBYE TO THE LEGACIES OF YESTERDAY AT WILL. LIKE A FILING CABINET, THE PAST IS A RESOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR LEARNING, BUT IT IS NOT A PLACE TO LIVE. "

Control September 08 2019, 0 Comments
Was talking to my 13 year old yesterday
about friendships and all they dynamics
that can come with them.
And at one point she was asking me a question
that I didn't have the answer too.
But what answer I did have was what I heard recently
that is beyond true - I wish I had heard it when I was
It was -
"Em, I don't know what to tell you but I can tell
you for sure that you can't control others, all you
can do is control what you do"
It is so freeing.
