June 9, 2004You guess we're friends... Amy I really don't want to stab....
June 2, 2004Amy. I love you girl. That is all I have to say. You are in my family for life. I had so much fun with you over the Nabo 2004 weekend. To everyone that reads this. Amy is a fantastic friend. She is sweet, kind, beautiful, fantastic, etc more than words can describe and anyone is lucky to have her in their life.
May 26, 2004Amy rocks! Before I met Amy, my life was a shambles: I was gambling every day, tramping it up every night, and had taken to wearing only a bathrobe. But hanging with her turned my life around! Now, I wear a bathrobe *and* slippers. Thanks, Amy!
So very very tired. Not 1st trimester tired, but a new kind of tired. Joints stiff, hips aching, sleep deprived, and ready to get this show on the road. I've also been told that I've started to waddle.Tue, January 23, 2007 - 10:24 AM permalink - 3 comments
The good news is that this is my last week of work before maternity leave! I'm beyond happy about that. I'm going to finish up the nursery, do all the baby's laundry, and clean house.

I spent this weekend at the San Damiano retreat center. It is run by Franciscans and is one of the most beautiful, most serene places I've ever visited. My group was there for the bi-annual Grief Retreat, and it was wonderful to connect with others who are also trying to make sense of the loss of a loved one. It was emotional, raw, and purifying. It was also my Christmas present to myself and my husband. One weekend to focus on ourselves before our baby arrives and to get centered. I'm so gla... read moreMon, December 4, 2006 - 11:14 AM permalink - 2 comments
I recently discovered this amazing woman. A medieval anchoress and mystic, Julian of Norwich was well ahead of her time. She astounds me every time I read her 600 year old words.Thu, November 2, 2006 - 2:29 PM permalink - 4 comments
Despite the church's teachings at the time of fire, brimstone, and an angry God, she introduced her readers to the idea of God as compassionate Mother and penned a refreshingly optimistic theology.
She leaves us with her famous saying,
"All shall be well
and all shall be well
and all manner of things shall ... read more

More than anything this month, I've realized who is there for me and who is not. Realizing that the women in my family are more important to me than ever--that they are my protective circle, my reminder of the sacred. That true friendship is selfless and eternal. That home really is where the heart is. That if you take a deep breath you really do feel better. That there are signs everywhere. I'm putting one foot in front of the other, feeling a peace and a kindness and a gentleness for others... read moreTue, October 24, 2006 - 9:08 AM permalink - 1 comment
