My Faith

Posted 05-05-2015 at 03:40 PM by Just A Girl
I’ve often been a fierce defender of faith in our ever so glorious newsroom. My religious background really has nothing to do with my faith, as I’m able to distinguish that one does not have to be religious to be faithful.

A little background….My entire extended family is Catholic. I went to Catholic school as a youngin and continued to practice in that religion until shortly after my parents got divorced. I participated in everything there but was never “confirmed”. One of...

And so it starts...

I am ridiculously sad. The past several weeks have really been pretty sad, with moments of feeling normal. When the room is quiet and there is no one else around, that's when I feel it. When I'm not busy cleaning or cooking or working or busy with some other monotonous thing, I am sad. Yesterday at church, the mother of a very dear friend of mine put her hands on my shoulders and looked into my eyes and asked "how are you?" and I completely burst into tears. I'm sad.

Struggling With Depression

Posted 12-12-2014 at 12:44 PM by Just A Girl

I was told on Friday that her kidneys were beginning to fail and she passed away the following Thursday. I barely had time to process anything and it was the end. I'm a blessed woman with beautiful friends and family that have been so supportive and thoughtful during this difficult time. I'm grateful for the bond developed with my sister. That is truly a silver...

Why I Love My Mom...

Posted 10-22-2014 at 09:59 AM by Just A Girl
Ever since I wrote about my Dad, I promised that one day I would sit down and write about my Mom. Maybe it's the passing of my uncle that has me feeling so reflective or maybe it's watching my Mom slowly deteriorate, I'm not sure.
My Mom and I have had a volatile relationship over the years. I think Mothers and Daughters often have much more complicated relationships than Fathers and Daughters. For me, it's always been easier with my Dad, despite the drama. With my Mom, there was so much...
