If you haven't heard of Rainbow Looms by now, well, then, you've probably been living under a rock. They are literally EVERYWHERE, and chances are, you may even be wearing one of the bracelets right now. My daughter and all her friends have been making them like it's their job, and my car could practically autopilot itself to Michael's to buy the replacement bands.… Continue

Breastfeeding was on of those taboo topics that people just didn’t talk about when I was pregnant with my first child. As a new mom, I knew right away that I wanted to try breastfeeding my baby. My first experience with breastfeeding happened when my twin sisters were born. I remember seeing my mom breastfeeding and knew that my body… Continue

I feel that when I came to this realization, it brought me mental wellness, it made me see life, my life, in a whole new light.
Recent interactions that lead me to writing this post
My girlfriend Wendy recently said to me, "V, I've got to wonder, how much more does God expect you to take? Is God waiting to see how much it will take to break you or trying to make you stronger?"
A post by my friend Christal:… Continue

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here
. So glad we were spared!...… Continue

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

In honor of National Down syndrome Awareness month, I created one statement for each day of October. Here are thirty-one (31) things that I love and celebrate about Zyon, my seven-year-old son with Down syndrome.
I love and celebrate Zyon’s:
1- willingness to learn new things
2- great sense of humor
3- ability to quickly pick up melodies in song after hearing it couple of times

How to foster cultural awareness at a young age
We learn a lot from our parents—including the things we want to do differently in raising our own children. There are many things my parents have instilled in me for which I now intend to pass along to the next generation, like the pleasure of keeping family recipes alive, a love for all things outdoors, not to mention an ear for great music like The Stones and Dylan (yes, I am a recovering flower child). However, there are things I aim… Continue

At first glance, these two words don't fit together. They appear to be an oxymoron. How can cancer, something so horrible and devastating, be paired with such a lovely word as blessing? How can a word that brings on the feeling of mire and darkness sit next to a word of hope and light?
I would say that they do fit together. I know my sister Amy would.
Amy and I have been in almost daily contact since her diagnosis. Many of the days have… Continue
