My Experience of Fear to Faith

My Experience of Fear to Faith

Awhile back I wrote about fear from a place of thinking about it. Fear is so much easier to deal with and think about when you’re not feeling it!  Today I’m writing about living fear to faith.  Yesterday I had banking to do and just way too much went wrong. I won’t...
Be Freedom!

Be Freedom!

Today is the 4th of July, the day the United States celebrates freedom.  Monday was Canada Day, another celebration of freedom. As a citizen of both countries, I’ve been thinking a lot this week about what freedom means to me.  As a child and young adult, freedom...
Six Steps to Increased Wisdom

Six Steps to Increased Wisdom

Wisdom is a quality that isn’t reserved for elders and the aged.. Wisdom is having an accurate view of the world, both the world we see and the world we don’t see, and how it works coupled with just judgment as to action. Regrettably, It’s much more common to view the...

Men! Fear! Anger!

Father’s Day, for many too many women I know, is a day of ambivalence, sadness, anger and grief, a day when they observe other women who have the love and support of their fathers and wish they’d had it as well.  As I write this on Father’s Day, I am thinking about...

Exceptionalism and Shame

Exceptionalism and Shame

 It alIt alsoI’m writing this on Memorial Day. This day isn’t just about honoring those who died serving our country. It isn’t just about bbq and camping. It’s about shame. I know that is a leap, so let me explain.  Since I wrote last week about my illegal abortion,...
My self-worth was aborted “legally”

My self-worth was aborted “legally”

My self-worth was aborted “legally” long before I was in need of an illegal abortion. My sense of lovability was aborted when I was born a female, and not male like my Dad wanted. My innocence was aborted when, at 4, my Mom curled my blond hair in ringlets and wrapped...
If every day were Mother’s Day…

If every day were Mother’s Day…

If everyday was Mother’s Day, perhaps there wouldn’t be so many people with conflicted feelings about the holiday. On Facebook today, I read posts from adopted daughters looking for a moment of peace. I’ve read posts from a daughter whose mother did not protect her,...
