The Balancing Act: You can have it all, just not all at once.

I remember the day I started writing again. I was a full-time stay at home mom and business owner, six years into my marriage, lobbying with my son’s school to get his IQ tested and nursing an infant.

Needless to say my house never looked like spotless ones in the Parenting magazines! Continue reading

It’s all Temporary (Memoirs in a Cast)

A good friend told me just a few days before my fracture, “even Superwoman has to put her cape in the dry cleaners for a few days” but Superwoman didn’t listen. I found out the hard way that when Superwoman is too stubborn to slow down, God sometimes does it for her. Continue reading
