I wanted to make a post for mental health week a little while back, but I didn’t do it. I didn’t feel like I had the words to describe what I go through and how my mind/emotions work and how dependent I feel on the input of others to feel like I am anything . I just couldn’t go there. …

I’ve been meaning to write a post to introduce you to our darling puppy, Penny. I’d featured her in a few of my Friday Fave Fives, because she brought a whole lot of sunshine into my life.

A little bit less than a year ago something personal happened to us that caused me great pain. Instead of feeling fiercely proud of my children, everything we’d accomplished in our home, and our completely remade (and HAPPY) life, I felt angry and discouraged.

Well, it’s been something like 14 hours since I announced that I was logging off of facebook for lent. When I first started using facebook about three years ago I was one of those people that update their status every couple of hours.
