When Fear Chases You Down

We are told to be brave, to take courage. We are told to face our fear, to take that thing head on. What on earth do we do when fear assails us right in the middle of this dream that we hold dear?I’m not talking about me facing down the fear, I’m talking about the […]

A Piece of the Puzzle

It was a three-puzzle Christmas. One didn’t get completed. We’ll have to break it out when we get home. Puzzles have been a theme in my world since the middle of November. It started at the Belong Summit. Puzzle pieces were the theme of the decorations, reminding the participants that we each have a part […]

A ten day whirlwind…

A lot has taken place in the last ten days or so. I feel like I’ve been in a whirlwind. The world has shifted for me in some not so little ways… I attended a conference, a retreat, several meetings and work. I have slept in 4 different beds. I travelled out of the province, north of […]

May I recommend…

Doing It Right on the Wrong Side of Town

We were on vacation recently. Road tripping through the beautiful Canadian west from Saskatoon to Victoria and beyond! We only had three kids with us so it felt kinda weird. Probably what ‘normal’ families feel like most of the time. We only needed one hotel room and people were far more willing to let us […]

The Big Cook – Lani style

I promised you a little post about the Big Cook! There is an actual book by that name, two in fact! You can get them at Amazon – and if I knew how to do an affiliate link I would but the thing keeps giving me an Internal Error message so I’m not persevering on […]

Community that Heals

It’s Thursday and I think I’ve finally recovered from a wonderful weekend spent with a community of people that we go way back with. Those people who will be our friends for the rest of our lives unless we do something stupid, like quit talking to them or something. Not likely to happen! My husband […]

Our RAD Journey

Our own journey with reactive attachment disorder began when a friend directed me to her girlfriends’ blog. At that point I had never heard of attachment disorder. The blog I read led me to believe that there was a possibility that we were dealing with something very similar to what this woman described. I started […]
