CARE ABOUT GLOBAL CHILD MORTALITY
*Take 6 minutes of your time to educate yourself about global child mortality.  This weekend world leaders are coming together to renew their pledge to give every child a 5th birthday.  There are so many organizations you can join to help in this fight....you probably already have connections to one you know and trust that are feeding and providing medical care to children in poor countries.  If you don't, use the Ordinary Hero link in the right side bar to buy a goat or sheep to feed children in Ethiopia or Uganda.  They have teams going to deliver the animals to families this summer!  If you choose our name in the affiliate menu at checkout, a donation will be made to our adoption fund as well!

Why 5th B-Day?




World Pledges to End Childhood Preventable Deaths



LEARN THE FACTS ABOUT HIV+ CHILDREN & ADOPTION
*The average American's knowledge about HIV hasn't changed since the 80's even though medicine has advanced by leaps and bounds!  Many children looked over for adoption are purely victims of ignorance!  Don't be average....educate yourself and others so these children can find families!

Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.”   Sometimes taking the first step is as easy (and as tasty) as buying a frosty and facing the facts through a youtube video!  If we all do something,  the top of the staircase won't seem so far away anymore.

Fear - You're Not the Boss of Me Anymore! - Part 1

I had a recurring nightmare as a child. It woke me in the middle of the night and kept me awake worrying about whether it would fill my mind as soon as I closed my eyes. I thought I would outgrow it. I hoped my adult brain would be able to see things my child’s brain couldn’t and I would be free. Instead, a panicky fear of my Dad dying followed me into marriage and parenting. I’m 49 years old and until recently, the nightmare still showed up in various forms.
This year my beloved Daddy died. I watched him take his last breath in front of me and imagined him arriving with the next in heaven. My whole life I’ve been clenched up around the fear that watching him die might break something inside of me and I couldn’t survive. 

It didn’t happen. I’m more okay than I ever thought possible. My dad isn’t living anymore, he’s not here on earth for me to talk to or touch and I’m sitting upright and in my right mind. Today I’m amazed at my okayness. Finally being free of this fear I’ve lived with s…

What You Need, When You Need It - The Glorious Table

We ate steak at the fanciest place in town, me and my sister, our husbands, and our parents. Around the table, we joined Mom’s reminiscing. We retold our favorite stories of family vacations and holidays. We revealed some silly childhood secrets. And we listened to Mom’s stories from fifty years she and Dad spent together. One of our favorite stories is of the birthday Mom expected a diamond ring but went home from their swanky dinner with a shiny new set of hot rollers. Whenever Mom tells that story, instead of making fun of Dad for his slow-moving ways, she praises his serious, methodical decision making. She points to it as proof of his dependability.My mom told stories. I told stories. My sister told stories. Even our husbands had memories to share. We retold some of the stories Dad put on paper in his journal for us. The thing we missed most was Dad’s voice in the storytelling.Rather than telling the stories himself, he locked eyes on the teller and responded, “By golly, that hap…

A Cup of Cold Water for Thirsty Mommas - Day 1

For the first time in nearly 20 years....I. Don't. Have. A. Preschooler.  Picking out gym shoes and putting a backpack on Ginger has put me in a reflective mood.  It's obvious that she's ready to begin school .....the question is, am I? 

The truth is, it's been an awesome run.  I'm incredibly grateful that I have been able to spend these years at home focused on soaking up the first years of my kids' lives.  I have loved being the one who teaches them colors, how to take turns during board games, why it's polite to use a tissue instead of a sleeve and being able to pass on my awesome Thriller dance moves.  It was an intentional choice that Scott and I made, right at the beginning, to order our little world in such a way that I could focus on being a mom.

You see, I believed my mom.  She told me to listen to what I've heard about women being able to have it all and do it all.  She told me to dream about a career, dream about being a mom, dream about ho…
