Closing Gaps & Recom

Closing Gaps & Recommend A Charity for 2017’s Gift

Happy New Year! Do you make resolutions? I don’t ~ but I DO set intentions throughout the year. A recent intention I have set is to Close The Gaps ~ “gaps” are what I call those ‘lost’ moments between activities – moments usually sucked up by my phone, namely Instagram. I just love looking at […]

a brand new vibrant breastfeeding painting ~ intimacy famine

I place here, for you to ponder, a paragraph from a book that has become a life manual for me over the years. A most-wonderful book that has been opening my mind in regard to… Everything that is important to me. Every time I read this particular paragraph I am stunned by its accuracy, its […]

A Gift Of Space… Gen

A Gift Of Space… Gently Does It

Here is something I notice and contemplate… we have been nurtured to fill up space, lest we feel worthless or lacking in use. Packing our days, then our weekends, with classes, sports, shopping. As adults, we are sometimes prisoners to this schedule, apparently trained early on that a spare schedule equals a boring or unfulfilled life. I […]

Nothing Matters (yet, everything matters) ~ and a new mini original

I find myself asking my boys (& myself) a lot, in view of a decision or dilemma: Will this matter in an hour? A day, a week? Ten minutes?   Often the answer is an obvious ‘no’. After months of this, I am beginning to feel that nothing ‘really’ matters… It doesn’t matter if we […]

Take A Moment: Too Many Toys… and a new mini painting

Let’s talk toys… Do they clog your living room and strangle the entryway? Do you find them behind the toilet and under the dining room table? What about in the car? I believe, in general, children have WAY TOO MUCH. When my kids were toddlers, I often felt I couldn’t breathe, even though my boys didn’t […]

Take A Moment: DeCluttering… and a New Mini Cosleeping Painting

Let’s talk clutter… do we realize just *how much* the stuff around us, as innocent as it may seem… can suck away our energy? Not to mention the time of moving, re-shifting, working-around the stuff. If we can just clear ONE space in our home, be it our master bathroom, bedroom, office (even just the […]

Take A Moment: Just So They Know & 2 new chunky 4x4s!

I hope you are enjoying your week! On Tuesday, I asked the soulful community of mamas who gather at the KmB Facebook page… What is ONE thing you TRY to do EVERY day to keep your relationship with your child strong? Just so they know how you feel 🙂 Here is what you shared: reading […]

Take A Moment: Chaos...

Take A Moment: Chaos ~ & a new mini painting

Hi there~ Recently, I asked the wise mamas on Facebook how they keep their homes out of Chaos. Here’s the scoop: small cleaning bursts throughout the day vs. a full day of cleaning; minimizing possessions to simplify (my personal fave); meal planning; cleaning one room per day; and also important: lowering our standards ~ sounds […]
