When There’s Three on the Screen – Three Babies

When you're lying there with goop on your belly, nervous and excited, and the technician says, "There's three!" Three babies. And time stops. And your heart takes forever to start beating again. And your mind goes numb, yet races at the same time. And someone tells you to smile. And you feel like a freak. When you look at the man you created a child with, learn there are three and wonder if he'll stay with you. And your heart wills him to feel through the panic and walk it with you. Even as he does the same. When logic commands you to deny all possibilities, every fibre of your being in confusion. And yet curiosity compels you closer. And the mother's heart within you draws you, … [Read more...]

Forty Years in the Making – An Anniversary to Celebrate

Every once in a while you encounter a moment in time that you realize will be life-altering. You know the kind?

How Many Times…How Many Tears?

I started this post more than six months ago and just never felt it was the right time to share. Today, it is... This song came on the radio the other night as I was driving alone (yes, alone!). As it began to play, especially through the chorus, I could hardly continue driving. It struck a chord so deep within me. How many tears will I cry before he sees?   I have experienced very few tragedies in my lifetime, for which I am VERY grateful. But there have been moments where the breath has been knocked out of me. And I've gone through seasons where I feel like every time I try to surface for air, I'm pushed back under. Moments of utter sadness and alone-ness. The deep … [Read more...]
