Five years ago I posted this photo on my quilting facebook page: I wrote that I was using up scraps to create some colorful quilt blocks. The next day I put them in the closet and there they sat for four years. I had no idea then that these squares would be part of a… Continue reading A Rainbow After the Storm
Where Do I Belong?
Infertility brings up many questions, but the one I wasn’t expecting to ask was this: where do I belong? It’s been a struggle to answer this question over the past three years. I’m still not convinced I have the answer, but I’m getting closer. Friends in different stages of life... It’s hard to figure out… Continue reading Where Do I Belong?
A year ago I still felt alone. Yes, I was surrounded by supportive friends and family, but I didn’t have a community of people who truly understood my situation. Today I give thanks for all I’ve experienced and encountered over the last year. Today I give thanks for you. Lindsay Letters For my writing friends...… Continue reading Give Thanks
I didn't really have any images to go along with this post, so I'm just inserting a few favorites that I've taken this fall. Since starting my Instagram account specifically related to my infertility journey, I’ve learned something very important: We are better together. Let me explain… In April I decided to start down the… Continue reading Better Together
Text Me, Please
I am under no illusion that I can do this alone. By this, I mean, life. I’ve never been a loner. I usually have to talk things out to feel better about whatever it is I’m experiencing — even if talking doesn’t fix it, just getting all of those thoughts outside of my head and… Continue reading Text Me, Please
With or Without an Object? That is the Question.
Two weeks ago I had dinner with a good friend of mine. It had been awhile since we’d been together, so we spent some time catching up. It wasn’t long, however, before we went deeper — that’s what I love about our friendship, we don’t stay on the surface for long. That look on her… Continue reading With or Without an Object? That is the Question.
Two is a Lonely Number
I listened to a new podcast earlier this evening — 10 Things To Tell You by Laura Tremaine. The topic was loneliness and I immediately turned up the volume to hear what she had to say. You see, even though I’m happily married and have a great family and many friends, I am often lonely.… Continue reading Two is a Lonely Number
So Much for a Plan
Around two months ago I was looking at our calendars to see what was coming up in 2019. I noticed right away that there were a lot of “dots” on the last couple weeks of January. I narrowed in and realized why. Brad was headed to Vegas for his quarterly work trip which lasts 7… Continue reading So Much for a Plan
Past, Present & Future
The last time I stood behind that lectern was the spring of 2013, just a few months before I’d graduate from Christian Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity degree. I was standing there because I’d been asked to preach in Chapel. That’s often how these things happen. I don’t necessarily need to preach or… Continue reading Past, Present & Future
I Did It Again
I can hardly believe what happened today. I didn’t sleep well the past two nights. I was on vacation for the last week. Although I still went out for runs, I was eating differently, sleeping in a strange bed and overall just not in my normal routine. I usually have a big pasta dinner the… Continue reading I Did It Again
