Kissing & Making It Better

As a child, I remember getting lots of bumps and scrapes. Sometimes those bumps and scrapes would include tears. I would run to my mom for comfort. She would look at what I had done, scrutinizing every detail, talking to me about what happened. Just those moments alone with my mom would help ease my hurts. After she bandaged me or dusted me off, she would offer to kiss it and make it better. And, it was. That simple kiss was magical. It helped the hurt go away. I know, logically, that the kiss didn’t heal my hurts. The kiss

Absentee Blogger

I have been an absentee blogger. I feel guilty over this since I have lots of thoughts on things to write about. However, going through the 1st trimester this time has been VERY exhausting.

Loving Gigi

Loving Gigi

I knew that once we had a baby our lives would change forever.  In some ways that change was scary, but, yet, eagerly anticipated.  Now, I cannot imagine my life without Gigi.  I love her beyond any measure.  She is the greatest treasure, blessing, and light in my life. It isn’t fair in some ways that a child never fully understands their parents’ love for them until they become a parent themselves.  I loved Gigi before she was born, but that love grew by leaps and bounds once she was born.  The love for her continues to grow.  It is
