It is obvious I have reached a place where I haven’t enjoyed writing about what is happening.  Not sure why.  One voice says it is important to keep the blog up to date at least weekly for my angel friends who are praying and watching over me and another voice says “if you don’t feel [...]

Alexander has just left the condo for the airport.  In 3 hours he will be on his way to Camp Woodward, a skateboard camp in Tehachapi, California. On June 13 he will land in Omaha where he will remain. If you have never heard of Camp Woodward then you probably don’t have a child into [...]

The fatigue subsided a week ago.  I feel like a new woman, or the same woman with a recharged battery.  What a sweet moment of joy to wake up and know that something is different…and that something allowed me to enjoy a full day of activities with my son and his friends. Today is my [...]

My son is my greatest teacher. Life is a mirror. It reflects back to you what is inside of you. A child is the clearest, most direct and immediate reflection I have ever known. And your own child came into your life specifically to further your spiritual development so there are times when the reflection [...]

5/4/09 My growing edge continues to be my level of self- care. Months ago I was told to rest and sleep more, yet I would not consider changing my schedule of driving to Honolulu on Mondays and Thursdays to be with Sky and friends at Unity Church of Hawaii. It is a one hour oceanside [...]
