On Being “All In”

On Being “All In”

I loved watching my daughter on the beach on a cold Spring day. She had decided she wouldn’t try to brave the cold waters, so she just dipped her little toes in, danced in the sand, and amused herself by keeping the waves from coming up to her rolled up jeans. Her brothers on the other hand, would have nothing to do with merely dipping their toes in. Determined to not waste a day at the ocean,…

My View for Today

The view of the sunset tonight was breathtaking. Funny thing is, even more moving for me, was watching my son take it all in.

The Journey Ends and Begins

This quickly became my favorite monument when I visited NYC last summer with my husband. It was sculpted by Luis Sanguino to depict stories of immigrants coming to the U.S. It is within sights of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. It inspired me to write this little poem because it showed such passion and so many stories wrapped up into one piece of stone. Definitely worth seeing if you’re…

It’s His Turn

It’s His Turn

I couldn’t help but smile as I sat on the couch and listened as my 17 year old son walked back and forth in the living room talking on the phone to his older brother. The cleats and baseball pants he had worn on the baseball field an hour earlier had given way to dress shoes clicking on the hardwood floors of our living room. He was trying on his tuxedo for his first prom, and looked just as…

to linger…

To wait awhile longer

To not move forward or backward, but to stay  for a bit because you don’t desire the moment to end.

Sometimes endings are truly endings, changes that you know are coming, and in lingering a bit, we try to heed off the inevitable.

I’ve had so many moments of ‘lingering’ in my lifetime.  There are moments that I’ve wanted to stretch out and make last, savoring…

It was one of those mornings.  I hit the snooze button time after time, and then had to rush to get ready because of the moments wasted hitting the snooze button.  Even though I had spent hours working on things to prepare for some meetings at work, I was still ill-prepared for the day. I had stayed up till after one o’clock writing reports for the next day, and  had fallen asleep before…

Guess what I saw today?! After the snow melted, these appeared. Love that. Needed that.  Sometimes Hope comes in small packages when you least expect it.
