Perspective

What is your perspective like?  Glass half empty or glass half full? Partly cloudy or partly sunny? I confess (should I be putting this in writing?) that I have a tendency to see the glass half empty. Many times I see through the lens of lack. I notice what is wrong before I acknowledge what […]

Facebook, Facebook, Tell Me How My Life Should Look

Today, we have a guest post (which you know I rarely do–as in I haven’t done so, in years…), from my friend Niki. I’m sharing because I really believe these word will encourage you and I want to introduce you to Niki Hardy. She has a beautiful story of hope that I want you to hear. […]

Dear Sister, #5

Dear Sister, THERE IS ENOUGH! __ The sun and moon are sharing the sky, this morning. A little more than half the moon’s face is holding steady in the sky.

If You’re Tired of Trying to Get it Right

“God is the easiest person to please.” My grandmother told me, in the most proper English with a slight hint of her Canadian accent shining through—each individual word annunciated with firm assuredness—as if each word were a sentence, in and of itself. ” GOD.

A Free Gratitude Journal For You

I’ve been a little cranky lately. No doubt, I could give you an array of excuses. A million little reasons as to why I’m tired and how that is making me, shall we say, testy. I notice I’ve been grumbling—when I type it out, it is such a gross word. I’ve certainly been complaining more […]

Not Perfect

The other day, I received a DM from an Instagram story. It wasn’t a fabulous story. It was neither styled, nor super-posed. Just me in my bathroom, with bad lighting, highlighting some retro spirit wear that I was sporting to my Ella’s volleyball game. The message, basically, said, “Your house is so perfect.” “Your life is […]

Dear Sister #3

Dear Sister, Sunday I turned forty-one. And in my Forty-first year, I want to become a ninja of love. I know. I know. Just keep reading. Forty was a year I won’t soon forget. It was the kind where two big life moments managed to seep into most of my 365 days. One, happening, joyful. […]
