Sam lives. Jesus lives.

A couple of weeks ago I was digging under my sink and found these.  Before I was pregnant, I never understood why Mamas would take pictures of them, let alone keep them.  I always told myself I wouldn't because it sounded strange - but I did.  The moment I laid eyes on them again, I cried.…

Matters of the heart.

Two beautiful babies were born today and two sweet pregnancy announcements filled my Facebook.  Happiness and pain encompass me tonight. The theme of my week has revolved around breath.  In yoga, you focus your attention on the breath.  {in and out. in and out}  I picked up a copy of Thich Nhat Hanah's Happiness which…
