Singing out loud

Last night I had to do some website client work when I got home from the newspaper, so MBE offered to make dinner (did I mention in last night’s post that he’s in town? Color me happy! :-))

While I was working, I turned on some music and started singing along.  I was so focused …

Who is deserving?

Today I had lunch with Peggy Nolan, a woman who I can already tell is going to be an incredibly dynamic presence in my life. We connected because both her husband and her son-in-law are deployed National Guardsmen.  She runs workshops for stepmothers and a whole host of other really cool stuff. (If you’re interested, …

The Miracle of Toy Story 3

This afternoon I wanted to take a little time-out, so I headed over to NetFlix to see what I could watch instantly. I was thrilled to see that Toy Story 3 was available. I’m not sure how I missed it when it was in theaters last summer, but I’m definitely glad I got to see …

The miracle of releasing steam

It’s been a weird few days. Old sadness has been coming up – stuff that I thought was long-since dealt with. Apparently I was quite wrong.

As I’ve mentioned before, I ended a relationship last summer. He was a kind and loving man, and there were times when we were really good together. But it …

Anticipating miracles

Today I watched last night’s finale of “The Bachelor” and “After the Final Rose” – yes, I admit it. I watch every episode. It’s drivel and it gets worse by the season, but it’s like the train wreck that I can’t look away from.

Throughout this season, I was torn – Brad seems so earnest …

The miracle of letting go of the past

So much has happened in the last 24 hours that I think I could write a mini-novel instead of a blog entry.  Here’s the Cliff Notes version.  🙂

For me, realizations of growth and change always feel like a miracle and it makes me happy to chronicle them for myself.  However, recently I’ve become aware …

The miracle of compassion

This past summer, I ended a two-year relationship. I knew it was the right thing to do – the relationship no longer made me happy – but it was still SO hard. He was up for a big promotion, I was in the middle of waiting to hear about the big contests I’d entered – …
