Favoriting my Mom's tweets

My Mom is a pretty tech-savvy lady: She runs a brilliant blog, texts and shares photos, and she tweets more often than I do. All of this she learned on her own, and I am incredibly grateful for her willingness to be involved online.

Four Years

The four years before marrying Ben, were rough – but very important. Very important in understanding the kind of person I was, and who I wanted to become. Identifying my emotions may have been difficult, and being immersed in all kinds of negative behaviors as a child may have blurred many lines, but my feelings about right and wrong were still very clear. Like they were programmed into my gut. Listening to my gut in the midst of any shenanigans would often lead me to drop whatever part I was playing in the mischief, and simply walk away – adultery, temptation, cruelty, anything illegal....more
