Missing Those Days With Her

Missing Those Days With Her

I’m missing those days with her, those days when her eyes sparkled as she climbed at the park and skipped all the way home. I’m missing those days with her when baking cookies, braiding hair and reading Curious George meant a perfect day, and tucking her in at night was the perfect evening. I’m missing...

reading with mamawolfe: A Life Apart by L. Y. Marlow

“Beatrice leaned into her daughters,  powerless to halt another round of tears. She thought about all that had happened, all that she had done, the years of deception and betrayal and hurt. And as her daughters held her, their contact comforting and familiar, she thought of them, and of Emma and Morris, all the...

Travel with mamawolfe: Bend, Oregon for Rivers, Books, Coffee and Consignment Stores

I just got back from a quick road trip to Bend, Oregon; we try to have a family reunion there every year, but with growing families and adventurous kids, it’s hard to bring everyone together in one place at one time. I managed three days and nights of rivers, books, coffee and consignment stores-not...

Pondering Independence Day

Pondering Independence Day

The 4th of July, for me, isn’t the kind of holiday I really look forward to. I live in a small town. We have the parades, the pancake breakasts, the picnics, the gathering-together-in-the-park kind of celebrations. We have the swimming pools, the BBQs, the kids riding decorated bikes through town. It just doesn’t speak...

What Is Prayer?

What Is Prayer?

These months of spring and early summer shared their beauty and their pain, their hope for new beginnings and the sadness of lives ended-some with grace and dignity of a life well-lived, and some with the tragedy of a life not-yet-fully lived. For me, I find prayer in poetry, in words of writers who...

My Best Life, June, 2014: A Month of Emotion

June was a month of emotion, a month where I saw the end of eras. June was a month of spontaneous tears, trickles of emotion both quiet and forceful. It was a month of smiles, and hugs, and goodbyes. June was a month of mercurial emotion, a month I searched for and found gratitude...

Past and Present

Past and Present

There was a day, not so long ago. It was a warm, sunny day, full of expectation and hope. It felt like the start of something special. She dressed that day not to impress, but to reflect her personality. First impressions count. She willfully chose a powder blue sundress, daisies embroidered on the bodice,...

Deep Gratitude

Deep Gratitude

There was deep gratitude in our garden Sunday night. All the people who love her were there to celebrate. Never quite sure who was coming, each time the front door opened, a new face of someone who played an enormous role in one aspect of her life entered into our space of celebration. There...

The Words Get Stuck

I keep thinking about how I should sit and write this all down about how there must be a poem or some sort of way to explain, express, or at least remember what I’m feeling right now these moments that are slipping away   But they don’t come I’m still frozen in place pen...

Wednesday Morning Musing In May

“There are two kinds of people in the world, observers and non-observers…” -John Steinbeck I could sit here all day, window cracked, listening to the mockingbirds chatter to each other from across the treetops. It’s silent in our house for the moment – late start morning, and everyone’s still tucked into their beds. Safe....
