Monday was the one year anniversary of Robert William’s due date. No, he probably wouldn’t have been born -on- his due date, but it’s the only date we can use. He would have been a year old. That’s a hard dose of reality to swallow, as I lie here with my 8 week old blissfully…… Continue reading Missing you
Mother’s Day 2013 – I couldn’t ask for more. A quick back story: [I am surrounded by talented women!] If you know me, somewhat well, you know that I love quotes. I have a whole page dedicated to them on here. They helped me cope through the hard times and now they remind me, looking…… Continue reading Blessings
Finally, what a happy happy day. It’s my Christmas! Last year this weekend I was bracing myself for a nonstop pain fest of seeing every giddy mother on Facebook announce what she and her family did for Mother’s Day. Rightfully so – I would obviously not expect everyone I know to skip out on posting…… Continue reading [I’m a Mother]’s Day!!

I have a very strong intuition, no doubt about it. Few who know me well enough to have witnessed it can attest that in some weird way I have an unnatural ability to sense things around me, or even about myself. I knew when something was wrong when I was pregnant, and I have on…… Continue reading Speaking To My Soul
Oh Liam. You’re not even here yet and my sleep (& life) pattern is already adjusting. Went to sleep at 1:20am and woke up at 5:00am. Not so bad now, but I’m sure weeks and months (or less) of that kind of sleep are not gonna be so pretty for your Mommy! I wonder if…… Continue reading On Liam’s Time
I came across this picture and I thought of the many friends I know of that are struggling right now; whether it’s simple “wants” or heartbreaking losses.
