Showing Up

On Saturday evening, I was the coordinator for a wedding. This half hour ceremony and two hour reception were the culmination of several months of planning, changing plans, organizing, making phone calls, running errands, shopping, cooking, sewing and a lot of just plain hard work.

CAKE BALLS

There are suitcases in the hall. I have made a detailed list of chores for the dog sitter....more

Girlfriends = Sanity

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life.  From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need.  Now that I'm raising two girls of my own, I...more
