Jalapeños

On the tip of my ring finger of my left hand is a small oval scar. It’s pale in colour and looks like a small cloud. Sometimes, I touch the finger tip and it takes my mind back in time. I feel like I’m still standing there. The cutting board is laying in front of… Read More

The Summons

When I received the summons in the mail it seemed to be an incredibly short time away from the original date on the statement. Feeling a mild inner panic I reviewed in my mind how I simply didn’t take that short walk to the mailbox, or how the post didn’t deliver it to me on… Read More

Monsters

One night I had this vivid dream. I was in another realm. There were people there that I loved such as my husband. There were no children. The atmosphere was messy. There were large cliffs of dirt and hills of brown sand. Large giants hid themselves under the ground. I knew I had to protect… Read More

The Hallway

Someone once asked her the question where Jesus was in her darkest moment. As her mind pondered the answer she sat back and allowed an old memory to grab hold of her. Suddenly she was there, standing. The hallway with pale coloured walls stretched out in front of her. The solitary door on her left… Read More

Soar

A power presses against you holding you up. Despite yourself you start to fly. It is the wind little bird. Do you feel it? Can you believe and choose not to be afraid? It is who you are little bird, and how you were meant to be. You are meant to soar above the chaos…. Read More

The Weight of time

As our bodies grow old and change I believe our spirits evolve into something bigger. My husband’s grandfather was an influential man. His soul was much bigger than his body. He took up space in a room and had so much spiritual weight. No one could have known him for any amount of time without… Read More

None but one.

I have realized that I want to grow my own peonies. I want them to burst with colour in my own yard. I want their sweet smell to fill the air around me. So I took action and called around to various greenhouses. The local greenhouse told me they were sold out. There would be… Read More

Wilted

One day at work I sat in a coworkers office. I was distracted by the bare walls and lack of art work. There were no pictures, and even worse no windows. Feeling stifled I decided to draw them a picture. I just didn’t know what to draw. So, I shyly asked what their favourite flower… Read More

You

You…my little laugh,  my Happy, and sometimes my sad. My run into my arms reminder that Im a safe place.  You’re the “go away Mommy!” You need your space.  The little mirror that shows me my ways.  A copy cat who repeats every phrase. My eventual forgiveness. A special kind of grace. You see me as beautiful…. Read More

Boy

April 11, 2018  A life with children is magical. It can make even the most ordinary thing, like a leaf, a grand discovery. The wind in the trees, the movement of light on water, the reflection in a glass, and so much more becomes a “WOW” of wonder in my mind, but it really starts… Read More
