Running Toward the Harvest

Well…it’s been another long hiatus since I was last on here. Truthfully, I hadn’t really noticed the time away. In all honesty, the break has likely been a good thing. I’ve needed time to refocus, start focusing and continue to focus on other things. I’m not going to make some fluffy remark about how I’ve been building memories with my family as though we’ve had some massive breakthrough in parenting and in our day to day that’s all of the sudden provided crystal clear clarity about all the why’s and how’s of life. We haven’t. Yes, we’ve made some good Read More …

Running Toward: No Apologies

I feel like a bit of a broken record when I say that I realize that things around here have been a bit sparse. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I make no apologies about not posting more often. I know for a fact that the two of you that actually tune into my ramblings aren’t hanging onto my every word like your last thread of sanity so I feel ok about living life off the open track. That said, I must confess that although I enjoy not worrying about writing some trifle of relevance on a Read More …

Running Toward: The Highs and Lows of Parenting

February has been a whirlwind! I really can’t believe that it’s almost March. As much as I’m eager for warmer weather and those first signs of the Spring ahead, it’s been nice to bask in the adventures that this month has brought us. Both my boys had birthdays this month (and apparently the little lady has several birthdays, according to her) which meant lots of celebrations, events, parties, and oh so much cake! Looking at my boys this morning, I can tell that they are most definitely partied out. I need to make a mental note to book a vacation Read More …

Reflections and Realizations…

Things have been a bit quiet around here for the past few months. Not much posting. I’ve found since the fall, life has gotten a bit busier but more than that, I just haven’t had anything to say. Not that I’ve been quiet by any means (just as my hubby…) but to sit down and write about something has been extremely tough. I’ve always enjoyed writing, from as far back as I can remember I found great joy in putting words to paper. It’s something that relaxes me but also gives me the opportunity to unload my brain in a Read More …

Finding the season tough? I get you…

As the holiday season is fast approaching, I can’t help but start reflecting on the year that was. I don’t really know what it is about this time of year that makes us do this. In some ways, I feel like I’m punishing myself for all the goals left unmet, expectations not risen to and voids left unfilled. Maybe it’s the way my brain is wired or maybe it’s the way I taught myself to think without even realizing it but this time of year is not always the easiest. I think of old family traditions amidst the brokenness of Read More …
