I did a series on my blog called Continuing the Conversation about Pregnancy and Infant Loss. As I would research articles online about recent conversations on this topic, I started noticing a trend. A lot of these posts online would start out with "We don't talk about (miscarriage, infertility, etc) very much." Even though 1… Continue reading Why Is This Still Happening?
I'm back! Not quite one hundred percent, like I'm not feeling the blogging bug like I have in the past, but the desire to write again is coming back. Slowly.

I've been toying with this idea for months now, rolling it back and forth in my mind. It will take the place of the Saturday Summaries I… Continue reading Come Join The Story!
New Year's day is probably, admittedly, one of my favorite holidays. It is also one that causes me a lot of anxiety and frustration throughout the year and leading up to it (as I mentioned yesterday when I shared my word for the year).

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. - Psalm 100:5 I was reading this passage this week, and the word "endure" stuck out to me. There are two definitions for the word. The first is "to remain in existence; last" which I'm sure is the meaning… Continue reading Sustaining: Enduring Love
A couple of months ago, my therapist told me that in these coming months, it would be okay for me to only have enough energy for my son, my husband and myself. When she told me this, even in giving me permission to embrace this truth, I still felt a twinge of guilt. It's not… Continue reading Living Within My Energy

This year, we won't be participating publicly, but we are going to… Continue reading Remembrance Day 2018
