About me

About me

Hello, friend! Welcome to my corner of the webiverse! Come on in and rest awhile–I’m glad you’re here!

As a mother of three girls, raising children has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined. I still remember the day we brought our oldest home from the hospital. While the cat was highly offended, our hearts were bursting.

And then, the realization that my husband and I were responsible for this precious child hit me. Terrifying!

Growing up wasn’t pretty the first time, and the second (and third and fourth) time around hasn’t been any more alluring, except that I’m not personally facing the mean girls and the bullies and the liars and the … well, you get the idea. Living vicariously through your children still hurts, doesn’t it? And even if you don’t have children, or if your children are the furry kind, living in this world isn’t always blissful.

But, I’m a firm believer that each one of us can make this world a kinder place for ourselves, our family, our friends, and, yes, even our enemies. I also believe that God loves each and every one of us—Christian or Muslim, pagan or believer, Aggie or Longhorn, Republican or Democrat.

I’m a Christian, but you matter to me even if you’re not. I’m far from perfect, and I don’t judge or throw stones.

So, come on in! I’d love to get to know you!
