Opening Up About My Pre-Natal Depression

From the moment we found out we were pregnant the negative thoughts began to roll in like a swelling ocean tide. Don’t get me wrong, I was over the moon and incredibly grateful that we were blessed with another pregnancy. However, the thought of having 5 children overwhelmed me… and, honestly, it still does! In my mind, I was barely coping… Read more »

Overcoming Feelings of Un-Appreciation!

Whether you just happened to stumble upon this post or have come here from my Letters Of Lace series. Know that you are in the company of a good friend!

However, once I was able to get over my self pity and think a little deeper into why she made that comment, I was… Read more »

What is Home?

      8 Comments on What is Home?

What is home? Today I had a bad day. Today I felt all alone. Today I missed my home. What is home? Well, I think home is … Not necessarily the place, home is the people that fill that space. But it’s also a place. It must be, because somehow we remember trees (and tree-houses), swings and porches, the familiar sounds… Read more »

It’s the small things..

      10 Comments on It’s the small things..

I know… I know… I’ve been a little slow in posting since I’ve returned from my time in SA. And I could probably come up with some excuses for why; like the fact that I hate unpacking after a trip – so every day I wade myself a little deeper into the bags that I brought back; or that family… Read more »

Friendships that have stood the test of time

      25 Comments on Friendships that have stood the test of time

I am super excited to be travelling back home next week, not only to attend a very special friend’s wedding, but also to visit and catch up with family and friends who I haven’t seen in a year. The truth, well for me at least, about immigrating, is that there is a sense of loss. A period of “mourning” (for… Read more »
