I wish I could find a way to tell you how much I love you, my sweet and precious little baby. Someday, when you become a parent yourself, you will also understand. Until then, you probably won’t know just how much I cherish you. People say that having a child changes you. I never knew […]

Five hundred words

Forgiveness comes with understanding, enlightenment, and love. Lots of love. You, too, are a beautifully flawed human being. You, too, cause needless suffering in others. You are sometimes cruel. But you exist, and you have consciousness. That is an amazing thing if you step back and realize it. Nobody is perfect. Not you. Not me. […]

Baby, Love

I’m currently 16 weeks or 4 months, and my belly is getting more noticeable, at least to me. Over the past week or so I’ve been feeling little flutters off and on, and I’ve been wondering if it is our baby moving. Every time it happens my heart skips a beat. With Liam, I only […]

The color blue

Hope, Life, Love

No one can tell you you’re in love. You just know it. Through and through. Balls to bones. A person who has not yet experienced love and asking for a description of love is more or less like the blind asking a sighted person to describe the color blue. The color blue can be defined […]

A good voice is incredibly attractive to me. I think it is the thing that first attracted me to my husband. I didn’t know what he looked like; he just had a “sexy” voice. It wasn’t particularly deep. It was just mesmerizing to me. A person’s voice conveys a lot about personality and demeanor. My […]
