I had a Thing for Mr. Rogers

When I was a little girl, I loved watching Mr. Rogers. I would sit in my living room and stare at the TV, watching so closely and listening to whatever he was talking about, soaking it all in. I loved his sweater and his shoes, I loved when he would feed the fish. Admittedly, I […]

Coming This Sunday: A Brand New Class

I had spent a couple of years without a place to call home on Sunday mornings.  There were no real reasons, I guess, but one week at home had turned into a few weeks, then into a few months, into a straight-up sabbatical from Sunday morning routines. Church and me: we were on a break. […]

Shaped Like an 8, not like an I

For a brief season of their childhood, my boys gave gymnastics a try. In retrospect, I think they were more interested in learning fancy trampoline tricks, but nonetheless, for a few months I spent many an afternoon in the tumbling gym. My mind wandered while my boys were flipping and flying with the one class […]

Confused and Full of Cheese

I wrote this week that we have now officially entered the week of the year when I have no idea what day it is, and I wander from room to room in my pajamas, carrying all of my new books, and eating a Christmas cookie. My friend Angie sent me a meme that shares my […]

"Favored."

My first husband died eleven years ago, on the morning of December 23, 2010. In the days to follow, I released this personal account of his final hours, the story I must write. Please be advised, these paragraphs are graphic, detailed, personal, and mine. Read with caution, respect, and care. These words hold my very […]

Repeat the Sounding Joy

I have been thinking of the words, "Let every heart prepare him room." As we prepare our homes, decorate our trees, hang our lights, frost our cookies, and prepare our feasts, we are preparing room.  We are making space to remember: something amazing happened.  They waited for him then, and we wait for him now.

Baby Ben, a Digital Robot, & My First Go at Grandparenting

I don't know if I've mentioned this recently, but Tuck is in tenth grade.  He has far surpassed my height, he drives me all over town, and he bakes dinner at least once a week.  He is taking a child development class this semester, and he has been learning and talking about words like breastfeeding, […]

Halloweens Past: I'm the Cozy Sweatered Lady Now

I'm feeling the wonder of autumn tonight. (It's probably because peeling apples makes me feel like a domestic goddess. I should probably dial it down a bit. If I ever fold laundry and peel apples in one week, my pride may swell larger than anyone will be able to stand. That's why I have to […]

Chocolate for a Cellist

Knock, Knock. Who's there? Something that should matter to you. Something that should matter to you - who? Yes. And also Where and When and How and For What Purpose and For What Cause. Everything matters.   There's so much to care about. Everybody is giving me more things to care about.  The headlines are […]

Gentlemen's Academy

Somehow, I have become the mom sitting by the mirrors outside the men's dressing room, while the sons try on jackets, pants, shirts, and vests to wear to Homecoming. More importantly, these guys have become tall enough, broad enough, and particular enough to wear clothes that require a tape measure for specificity and fit. (We […]

The Things We Might Say

If she tells you she wishes her car got better gas mileage, that doesn't mean she wishes she'd never learned to drive. If she tells you she didn't like the middle of the book, that doesn't mean it wasn't worth reading. If she tells you she doesn't love her job, that doesn't mean she won't […]

A Love Letter to Simone

Forty-Two

I have turned forty-two.  And so far, my senses are on hyperbolic overload with all that forty-two has already shown herself to be. Forty-two sounded like, "Good morning, my darling… Alexa, play." And then forty-two sounded like Peter dancing me around the living room to the song, "And I Love You So" while I was […]

She Said Yes: One Amazing Wedding Proposal

So this guy came to my brother.  He said, “Hey, man. I really love this girl. I want to ask her to marry me.” And Rob thought for a moment that the dude was asking my brother to be in the wedding, which would be weird since they weren’t *that* close. Then the guy said, “She’s very […]

  "Coming up with a new recipe to feed the family, or even putting together a presentation for a new client may not typically be thought of as creative acts, but they are. Creativity is about choices, training, experimentation, inspiration, history, commitment, and fun. Every occupation - from artist to businessperson, teacher to chef - […]

The Naked Movie

I am writing in the library today. A mom and her little girl - probably four years old - walked by my spot near the movie section, and I heard the little girl begging her mom to get her The Naked Movie. Mom: "I'm sorry, what? I don't understand what you're asking me." Daughter: "I […]
