  • I Don’t Owe Anyone Anything

    Yesterday I had rather a bit of a breakthrough moment. Now, to most people with healthy backgrounds and relationships, this will likely be a bit of a “duh” moment, but to people like me who were groomed to be codependent caretakers, it is an immensely important realization. My “eureka moment” can be summed up in […]

  • Instagram – People Who Try Too Hard to Be Sexy and Cool

    When I joined Instagram a little while back, I originally started out trying to follow back everyone who followed me.

The only reason we really went was to earn some of our foster parent educational credit hours, but I must say that the class turned out to be eye-opening and even frightening on many levels. I thought I already […]

  • Lions and Tigers and Bears – Oh My!

    Ok, so I didn’t see an African lion today, but I did see a mountain lion, a couple different kinds of bears and some Bengal tigers.  Where did all this take place?  At Heaven’s Corner, a little animal rescue sanctuary not far from where we live.  This isn’t our first time visiting, in fact, we […]
