Back-to-School Blues

Back-to-School Blues

It’s 7:06 a.m. and the house is quiet. I have 9 hours until the bus returns to drop her back off. As often as I have pleaded for quiet in this house, now I just look around with a sense of sadness and a feeling similar to a pair of solar eclipse glasses: obsolete. There […]

The Experiences of a Mother's Heart

The Experiences of a Mother’s Heart

Before becoming a parent, it never really occurred to me that one of the many feelings I would experience as a parent would be heartbreak.
