Playlist Freedom

 You know how a song can take you back to a certain point in time, or give you these feelings you thought were buried beneath the surface or gone altogether? I rarely put my music on shuffle, I'm the type of person that likes order, I like to know what is coming next. Not just with my music, with everything. Today I put my music on shuffle, forcing me to listen to a song at the bottom of my list, had I not been on shuffle I most likely wouldn't have made it that far down my playlist before turning it off....more

Live Your Dream

There’s been a lot of talk in our household lately about dreams. What dreams I have, what dreams the Mr. has and what dreams we have together...for our future and the future of our kids.

My name is Amy Oestreicher, and according to doctors, I am a “surgical disaster.”  However, at 28, I feel truly blessed.  I may not have a stomach, but I sure am hungry for life.  It started in 2005 – a week before my senior prom.  It was our second night of Passover, and my stomach started hurting.  My dad said it might be gas, but he took me to the ER for an x-ray, just in case.  On the way there, my cheeks actually puffed up, soon after, I collapsed, and I woke up from my coma months later.  Apparently, there was a blood clot on the mesenteric artery ...more

The dedicated it happened

I'm not sure what was worse the fact that my husband was leaving for Army basic training when our daughter was a little less than five months old or the fact that I would have to be dependent on my mom and step dad for a place to live and food to eat. ...more

The First Sip. And not what it sounds like.

What happens when… take your first sip of water in three years.  Honestly, I was disappointed – it didn’t taste like anything. Okay, I will admit that to feel that ice cold rush of liquid down my parched throat – left dry as a desert for day after uncertain day – was extremely refreshing.  But even the biggest Las Vegas-style buffet could not have appeased my insatiable hunger at that point. ...more
