The Acceptance Speech.

January 17th, 2012
In the unlikely event of receiving the “Mother of the Year Award”, I’ve been practicing my acceptance speech only to myself in hushed tones. I know it’s probably unnecessary but a girl needs her dreams.  Today I share this dream with you, it goes something like this- Firstly, I do NOT trip over my sexy ... Continue Reading »
British writer G. K. Chesterton gave a new perspective on Santa Claus. What has happened to me has been the very reverse of what appears to be the experience of most of my friends. Instead of dwindling to a point, Santa Claus has grown larger and larger in my life until he fills almost the whole of ... Continue Reading »

Finders Givers.

December 6th, 2011
They gather things. Together, separately. Bits. Pieces. All very important. Often a precious rock (broken asphalt), or a note (on scrap paper). Sometimes a rainbow (piece of string), or a piece of gold (yellow button). Now and then, a valuable coin (found in the dust behind the washer) But always love. Right there on my ...

I feel like I’ve really grown this Thanksgiving…in more sense than one! Thanksgiving is a great day but as comedian Kevin James said, “Thanksgiving! Man, not a good day to be my pants.” I’ve grown to understand that it’s a patriotic duty to over-eat at Thanksgiving. And after this year, I must surely be considered ... Continue Reading »

I Know This Much Is True

November 22nd, 2011
I have it all. I have a husband, and kids. A house, debt a pet chinchilla and a dog that is too cute for it’s own good. I have long friendships, caring parents, and a pantry full of food. I have vacations, clothing and an education. I have the seasons, the daylight and sleep. I ... Continue Reading »

Today’s Story.

November 1st, 2011
Hands leaf through pages with long ago words. Hearts search through stages with long ago hurts. The story keeps changing from this day to next. The mind rearranging, to what it likes best. A tale told over, a familiar groove. A place to take cover no need to move. But it’s time to tear up ... Continue Reading »

Enough is Enough.

August 23rd, 2011
“Really, we’re rich?” she asks in delight. “For real?” her eyes widen with dreams of owning her very own petting zoo. My then 6yr old seemed to be quite curious about wealth.  Apparently it had been a topic of discussion between her and her friends. Can you imagine? How would their little minds frame such ...

The Worldwide Web

August 9th, 2011
My husband, children and I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank all my girlfriends (past present and future) for my mental health. In the past 20 years I have moved often; from towns, cities, countries, and hemispheres. After unpacking enough boxes to find clean underwear and a favourite toy or two, on ... Continue Reading »
Two men shared a hospital room, both very sick. One man was near the window and the other man had to stay flat on his back in his bed away from the window. They struck up a friendship and talked for hours on end. The man near the window would describe the scene out of ... Continue Reading »

A Fantastic Reality.

June 28th, 2011
Nope, never was a fan of “The Hobbit”. (Insert gasp here) Fantasy just isn’t a genre I’m drawn to. Guess I’ve always been a realist, even as a child. (some may even say cynic) It’s true, I do not like talking animals, time travel, princesses, and unexplained tricks where brooms multiply, nor when ugly beasts ... Continue Reading »

A Fine Balance

June 13th, 2011
His arms wrap around their lives, strong, protective, sure. He throws them high into the air beyond even their own expectations. He listens with his heart to more than just the words. Believing in their inner strength when they feel lost or torn. He’s really quite the magician, turning meltdowns to shrieks of laughter. Letting ... Continue Reading »
A two-year old is kind of like having a blender, but you don’t have a top for it.- Jerry Seinfeld Let me expand on that……parenting is like a topless blender. Just when you fill that blender with all the perfect ingredients for the best ever smoothie, (a little flax seed for heart health, a little ... Continue Reading »

The Path

May 17th, 2011
Ever laughed without smiling, or knelt without knees, hugged without touching or said thanks without please? Ever clapped without hands, or chewed without teeth, slept without dreams, or felt calm without peace? Ever forgot without knowing, or read without words, swum without water, or took without turns? Ever sung without song, or stopped without starting, ... Continue Reading »
Twigs, sticks, grey and lifeless. Pretending to be dead, fooling me. I’m easily fooled. Sharp, brittle, and ugly. Yes, like the duckling. You know the story. Transformation, ugly turns beautiful. We all finally rejoice because pretty is better. But this isn’t a story with a perfect ending. It’s a perfect cycle with no real ending. ... Continue Reading »
