Discovering My Heart

โ€œYour heart is like the ocean, mysterious and dark.โ€
~ Bob Dylan

This quote is on one of the cards in our Macy calendar this month. Iโ€™ve been taking the quotes to heart this year, trying to find meaning in each one, just as I meant for my little family to do when we were making them together last year.   

Icky January

January is when I start to feel icky.  And by 'icky', I mean restless and crawling out of my skin.  It has only hit me in small bursts this year, but in the early morning hours of this Saturday morning, I'm feeling it.  My family is asleep.  Usually Mr. Bookworm is up writing by now.  I'm wide awake because I woke before my alarm.

Featured Fridays: Caring Bridge

I posted a letter to Macy on my Caring Bridge site on her one year birthday.   At the time of my pregnancy with her, it was my lifeline to my supportive family and friends. 

I wanted to share what was going on with us, but I did not want to have to say my story over and over again.  So I did what I do best: I wrote about it.  I wrote and wrote, and so many people sent me messages of support, either on Caring Bridge itself, or by email, or in person.  Or even verbal messages through my sisters and parents.
