What’s in a Name?, You might be surprised!

I am a survivor of emotional and psychological abuse. I made a decision long ago, almost inadvertently, that would become paramount in putting myself on the path to healing. When we have broken records that replay in our heads it is very difficult to erase or record over them as the case may be.  Somewhere […]

Pondering Mother’s Day

Pondering Mother’s Day

[media-credit id=68 align=”alignleft” width=”150″][/media-credit]My first few Mother’s Days as a mother were what most people think Mother’s Day should be.

The Single Person’s Midlife Crisis
