Depending on where in the world you live, children may already be back in school. I have two teenagers, and they started back two weeks ago. Woo Hoo! Well, that’s normally what I’d say. This year, I'm not so sure…

2018 is all but finished. And I'm more than OK with that. It's been a mixed bag at best, with highs and very lows. 

Millions make resolutions at the end of the year. I have in the past. They have the average shelf life of milk. So, I stopped making them. I thought I'd t...

Let's face it, 2018 hasn't exactly been an easy year. We witnessed more school shootings, mass shootings, racial tension, hate crimes, poverty, etc. I lost my Mom, something that continues to devastate me. It's easy to focus on the negative since we have it in our face...

Today is back to school day!! Woo Hoo!!! First, let me assure you that I love my children. I'll love them even more later today. Working night shift means sleeping during the day, when they are in my house. All day long. And despite warning, they like to come in to my...

I buried my Mom yesterday, after a long, exhausting battle with Alzeimer's. I knew, from the moment she was diagnosed, how this would end. So why is it such a surprise? Why does it hurt to breathe?

Today, we met with hospice for my Mom. Hospice and Mom should never be in the same sentence. Yet, here I am. Today was another step in a journey that has spanned the past eight years. Eight years. I have been losing my mother, mourning her, for eight years.

My Mom has a...

You'll find this is a common theme for me. My mantra, one might say. I work in an ER. I have seen, way too many times, life cut short or changed forever without warning. My Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the age of 70. Ten years later, she's still here. If by he...

Mother's Day is not as clear cut as some would think. Many women, myself included, travel a very difficult path to becoming a mother. Some never get their dream. For this reason, I do not wish people a 'Happy Mother's Day' unless I know their story.

My husband and I, l...

How is it April already? Am I the only one who thinks time moves faster as you get older? A few days ago, we celebrated the 16th birthday of my oldest child. 16! I remember the day I met her as though it were yesterday. And now she drives and is thinking about college....

February is soccer try out month in my house. Both of my kids play soccer, both for school and club. Soccer is a big deal in my house. February is a tense time. "What if I don't make the middle school team? Again?" This from my son. "I have to make varsity this year."...
