Finding Balance in Life

“I need to find more balance in my life.” “My life is so out of balance right now!” How often have you made statements such as these? Especially when we feel pressured by deadlines, pulled apart by multiple demands, and tugged at by our own need to “hear ourselves think” we can really start to feel off and on the brink of complete craziness. That’s when we tell our friends that we just need to find some balance or we need to get away for a while to gain some perspective. The issue is that balance doesn’t always look like balance.


Fall is Underway!

It’s official! Fall is underway. Not only does the calendar tell us so, but the weather is most definitely changing. And have you noticed how dark it is in the early morning and how night is beginning to come on sooner too?

Fall is such a beautiful time of year, with all the changing colors, yet for many, it is one of the most difficult seasons to live through. I am one of those people—I call it experiencing the “fall dip.” Although I love the cool, crisp days, I know that it’s time to say goodbye to summer. It’s time to hang up my bicycle until next year, to put the shorts and sleeveless tops away along with my sandals. It’s time to pull out the long pants, sweaters, and boots because winter is on its way. It’s time to say goodbye to the outdoors. At least in part, because I know I’ll be spending more time indoors.


Grieving - hopes...

Grieving What Could Have Been

My son Matt has been clean and sober for over five months now. What an amazing accomplishment this has been! And how wonderful for his dad and me to see him engaging once again in life. I see the possibility and promise of all that he is moving towards.


Life Goes On

Life Goes On - Riding the Ups and Downs

This summer has been an incredible rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, twists and turns. A snapshot of what life is truly all about. And a reminder of what’s truly important—my family and my approach to life. I realize above all else, that my loved ones are what counts most of all. And, when I can move through my days with gratitude and grace, I’m living life to the best of my ability.


New Beginnings

This October I will become a grandmother for the very first time. I am excited and so ready for this new phase of my life. Many who know me well have heard me say for quite a while that I could hardly wait to have grandchildren. That long-awaited dream is now becoming a reality.

           With the loss of my mother last year, I know that this is how life works. Something ends and something new begins. It doesn’t always happen quite so distinctly, as with my mother’s death and the impending birth of my first grandchild, but as living beings, we are constantly experiencing change and transition, endings and new beginnings.
