More than Valentine's Day: Everyday Love Notes for My Teen

I have never been a fan of Valentine's Day; it's always felt manufactured and forced to me. Isn't the whole point of loving someone that you let them know, y'know, kind of all the time? Why is a specific day needed to let someone know you care? (Or, alternatively, to let those people who maybe don't feel as loved as they wished feel even more alone and alienated than usual?) I got to thinking about this a little while ago as I considered the holiday, and the fact that for the first time, I'm not with my daughter for it. ...more
Love. Thanks for inspiring me to do the same. Even if it's a text.. our VDay sucked yesterday ...more

Love Notes

What time is it?  Can you just hear that line from that Jason Mraz song?  Well today I was all set to watch American Idol at 8pm and ran my kids off so I could have the TV and everything….. only to find out it isn’t Wednesday!!!!  It’s still Tuesday ARGH!  Okay, so I’ll have to wait another day to watch American Idol but I don’t really want to watch anything else on TV right now....more

Spread a Little Hope Around

I don’t know that you would call me a predominately hopeful person. I have chronic migraines, which fall in and out of remission. When I’m in remission I’m a pretty happy go lucky girl, and I do things like chalking love messages on my urban slate. But when I’m out of remission, HOPE is not generally flashing like big neon sign over my personality. Today there is migraine. Yesterday there was migraine. The day before…well, you get the picture. Hope has been running on empty these days. ...more

Thanks so much for including me in this awesome list. Looks like there's a lot of love and hope ...more
