What Cancer Took From Me

You see her at the store.  She, like everyone else, is just picking up her weekly groceries, but on her, your eyes linger a little longer.  Her head is covered in a telltale scarf, and where hair would normally be peeking through, there is none.  You feel pity for her, thinking she must be so sad about her hair.  As a cancer survivor, I can tell you her hair is the last thing she is thinking about.  Because while it takes so many of the physical parts of a person, its deeper blow strikes the…

Clean Mama

When taking on parenthood and adding that sweet child, or 2 or 3, to our family, we have created a 24/7 commitment to raising a human being.  It is a commitment that should not be taken lightly!  That being said, just because we have this new number one priority, it does not mean all of our other responsibilities just fade away (unfortunately). In fact, they only multiply!

That laundry we have been meaning to get to?  It is now tenfold, complete with pukey burp cloths and…

#MOMLIFE- AN ODE TO MY FIRST POST BABY WORKOUT

I am a planner.  I always have been.  My love of frequent list making is a tribute to that.  My husband never understands why I take time to make lists instead of just accomplishing the tasks.  “So….you’re writing down the thing you have to do and then doing it?” I have heard that countless times.  Lists soothe me.  They also are the best way for me to set goals and keep them. There is something more concrete about putting those goals on paper.  Almost a binding contract with…

Circle of Life

You can tell a lot about a person from their hands.  Time takes a toll on them, and they each tell a story.  Stories of love and loss, scars and age spots.  Hands that have washed many dishes after family meals.  Hands that have lovingly changed, burped, and held children closely.  Hands that have labored for an entire lifetime, providing a roof and food for their family.  They are a representation of the gardens one has sown, both in the soil and in life.

In my short lifetime, I have…

Scattered Seeds

When looking back on our childhood, many of us can remember a favorite place; somewhere we could escape from the rigors of life and be whoever we wanted to be.  For my sister and I, that place was our tree.  Our tree was weathered, but it was also incredibly strong.  As children, it seemed monumentally so.  Its mammoth trunk was covered in knobby growths, and, in time, it had swallowed a piece of barbed wire fence that was wrapped around its middle.  With its many thick branches, my sister…

Seasons

Do you have those certain songs that act as a soundtrack to your life?  You sing them often, sometimes only to yourself.  One of those songs for me is Turn, Turn, Turn by The Byrds.  Yes, I am most certainly a product of my mom.  She always said her favorite season was when Abby and I were little.  She stayed home with us, and our days consisted of many things that to the passersby would seem inconsequential, but to us, they make up the very people we became.  Looking back, I am…

Chasing Sunlight

Memories of my childhood dance through my head even now as an adult.  I cling to that feeling of utter innocence now, and it is something I strive to make a reality for my children every day.  My sister, Abby, and I grew up in the country.  Time seems to slow down in those wide open spaces.  Your senses come alive.  I can still smell that fresh air, sweetened by the scent of the fresh dewy ground and nearby wheat fields.  I can see my sister’s long blonde hair bounce against her back as she…

Grace Changes Everything

Each of us has a story to tell.  We all walk through this life experiencing both triumphs and hardships, moments that we view as ordinary and those that are extraordinary.  It sometimes seems those who experience hardships experience many.  I also believe as a result of hardships, we are given the gift of clarity and joy in the simple things.  My name is Emmy.  My story is both exceptionally joyful, and, at times, overwhelmingly sad.  At both of these times, God’s grace has been beautiful.…
