At the beginning of the summer, I wrote a blog post about Summer Survival. In that post, I talked about the pull of the romanticized notion of letting kids be bored during the summer – the idyllic 1970s summer that people these days seem so fond of trying to recreate. I also talked about how … [Read more…]
It’s 76 degrees, I’m sitting on my sunporch, and regardless of the fact that I’ve been awake since 4:50AM, I think that right now is the perfect time to be counting my blessings and looking for beauty. The past few weeks have been incredibly wonderful. Ezra’s behavior has made astounding improvements, hubby is doing well … [Read more…]
It’s been quite some time since the last edition, and there is so much beauty to share.
I don’t know if I fully believe that hope can change everything. But at least for the last three days, I’ve felt a spark of hope.
And I want you to know that somewhere, in that mess you look at and call life, there is beauty there too. Grasp it. Hold onto it. Share it. Because it is your hope.

This transition out of the Army and move to North Carolina has been and will continue to be an adjustment in so many ways, but we are rich in God’s grace and in the beauty that He has granted us over the past few months.
As of today, we have lived in our new home for exactly one month, and have been here in our new hometown just a few days beyond that. In so many ways our life in Kentucky…our Army life…seems like a different lifetime ago. It feels like we have been here forever. And other times it … [Read more…]
It seems like I just did one of these posts. I figured that this series would run once a month…or so… but as I refuse to set any sort of official blog schedule for myself, then I can do it whenever I want. Even if it’s been less than two weeks since the last post. … [Read more…]
It is of the small joys and little pleasures that the greatest of our days are built. Mary Anne Radmacher January and February have been very full months for our family. Full of ordinary days and ordinary moments. They have been fun and relaxing, but busy as well. Ordinary, busy, relaxing, and beautiful… My husband … [Read more…]
Not long after I wrote my post about Losin it!, I started having better days. Things tend to work that way… First, God sent me my “Mommy’s Helper,” A young lady in my church who has a lot of babysitting and housekeeping experience. She came over and played with Ezra while I taught piano lessons … [Read more…]
