Well, That Stinks!

Three days ago, I decided I would get some writing done!  I was going to pen (type) beautiful pros about motherhood, growth, life and other profound stuff.  Things did not go as planned.  I thought I could accomplish this feat because Ry is home and could therefore take care of the little snapping turtle, while…

Taking Time to See the Light

I have thought many times before that children are the ultimate measure of time.  Their progress is one of the most palpable demonstrations of daily growth.  Children change at a rate that is impossible to ignore, as long as you are paying attention.

Our Little Slice Of Mushroom Covered Heaven.

I was preparing a post on how much I hate money but I scrapped it.  Writing it did not make me happy.  Life is too short for that, so I stopped.   We went for a walk instead. There is so much life in our backwoods.  I believe you could stare at a small patch of…
