My head is still spinning like everyone else's in the wake of the horrific findings of the Pennsylvania report. Just yesterday, I dropped my youngest son off for his sophomore year of college, where we stopped at the student union to get his dorm key and then proceeded to his dorm - and both buildings … Continue reading It Isn’t Just the Catholic Church

I've been chewing on this question for a while. Too long, if I'm honest - I feel like I should just know by now. *Put your shoes on - this may hurt some toes. That's not my intention even a little, though. I am sharing this because I have been so thankful for the people … Continue reading What is the Work of Justice?
I was using the restroom at Wawa the other day (Wawa is God's gift to convenience stores), and someone came into the stall next to me. She was talking on the phone, which is always a little bit of a marvel to me - people talking on the phone while using the bathroom, and, to … Continue reading Well, That Was Embarrassing ….

When my kids were … Continue reading You Are A Good Enough Mom

She caught my attention when her change scattered all over the sidewalk. Someone had bumped her cup, probably … Continue reading Spilled Change and a Meaningful Intersection
A very brave, strong, courageous friend posted the other day that he may be MIA from social media for a little bit because he was struggling intensely with anxiety and depression. He was practicing self-care, and I sat back and just chewed on the fact that part of that self-care was sharing his current state. … Continue reading I Struggle Too
