Story telling is a precious and invaluable way of holding on to your history and never forgetting. It’s a way to create memories that can last a lifetime.
I met a real live ANGEL today, her name is Tawanda Jones…you can see her and learn about her inspiring story on the Dancing With The Stars website.
The whole country has been transfixed by the events that happened in Boston. The tragedy has stirred up a lot of feelings in my family and provoked many questions from my younger children.
Last night’s Dancing with the Stars theme - “Best year of their lives” - struck up a great conversation between my husband and me. We asked each other to define our best year.
Today was a unique day for me. It was one of those "I-wish-I-had-time-to-do-this" kind of days.
It's Wednesday morning, the morning after double days at Dancing with the Stars. It's spring break, so I didn't have to wake up at the crack of dawn and rush my kids to get ready off to school on time.
We kicked off Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars with flying colors, early tears, laughter and of course a ballroom filled with fear!
"Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff." - Catherine M. Wallace
I always stress the importance of setting aside some time just for you, but with everything that has been going on in my life, “me-time” seems a bit selfish this month. It is one of those phases where everyone seems to need a little too much of me.
For more than a few weeks now, I’ve been a little checked out, kind of disconnected and pretty numb. I’ve wanted to write but I’ve needed to escape from my own reality.
I’m at home playing nurse today with Rain. She just came home sick again from school. Sierra was out earlier this week and Neriah had a raging case of who-knows-what last week. It’s like tag-sorry-you’re-IT in my house.
