Small Things Matter

When I started this blog in 2008. I thought I would write it for families that were dealing with special needs. Then I realized I was writing advise to my children for the years to come and my blog became a way of joining my children later in life along the parenting path. Just recently I realized I have been writing to make sense of all the transitions of life, children, and career.

I married my best friend in 1990 and went on an adventure called life. Before we were 30 we had four children under the age of four (two sets of twins) and had faced the passing of a new born.  My blog spans their pre-teen. teen, and young adult years. I write on the difficulties of raising teenagers, the challenges of special needs, the ups and downs of marriage, and the difficult transition to an empty nest. My blog is about family life, mom struggles, love, and the joy of becoming more self-aware. During the time span of this blog I became a licensed counselor and health coach and many of my insights are reflections of that work. Join me on this adventure of life. I hope that in some way my blog will bring encouragement, insight, and love. And to my children, I hope that you remember pieces of your childhood through this blog and become fully aware of how deeply each of you are loved. My hope is that you see your childhood from another perspective and that it will grow your personal insight. And maybe in the future when you are 40 something we can meet as peers and have a cup of coffee sharing our stories with one another through these readings... 

Life has many ups and downs. It is constantly changing and evolving, it never remains the same. You will go through seasons where you feel stuck, seasons full of joy or sadness and seasons where you feel strong or weak but hold on because it will change as sure as the seasons in nature change... Be encouraged knowing you are right where you are suppose to be for this time...

In this family unit I have learned far more than how to raise children. I found myself and learned to love another deeper than I thought possible.
