Have you ever walked across a room at home and felt your foot sink into something that is definitely not flooring of any kind? 

How about innocently stepping onto a stair and finding a foreign object lodged between your tender toes?

Or perhaps removing your shoes and not...

All things come to an end, this is an indisputable fact. Whether that end is the last breathes of a life, the completion of a task, the final leg of a journey, or the scraping of a fork on an empty plate, there will be an ending. Some endings are easy to cope with and...

Mothers have superpowers. There is no other way to explain the multitude of things that we are able to accomplish within a given day, nor in an entire week. The extraordinary abilities that come with the onset of motherhood are truly astonishing and worthy of recogniti...

Those of you who have boys will understand (unless my sons are some sort of aberration and this post is far from your reality). A window into my world, will undoubtedly show you many things but it’s the things you hear that are the focal point today. You see, if you we...
