1. Why is she up at 6am?
  2. Excuse me, Winter, you’re no longer welcome, please leave immediately. Threatening us with negative degrees is just tacky.
  3. It takes a couple of hours before I realize I’m exhausted. Again. My eyelids hot and thick, my energy bottoming out as I swing a second cup of coffee. Am I sick? Running too hard? Doing cosmic battle in my dreams ?
  4. I can’t be the only mom who forgets about Mother’s Day. It just doesn’t feel like it applies to me.
  5. “Love leaves a mark.”
  6. Peace is the promise you keep.
  7. A woman comes alongside me, takes my tiny hand in hers, and all three of us cross the street. Heavenly Father, Heavenly Mother, and me–their precious, found daughter. A complete picture at last.
  8. Lay it down. Leave it there.
  9. I clean one room–I even move the couch. It’s not enough, but it’s a start.
  10. If I hurry, I can be asleep by 8:30.
