Gorgeous photos of this incredible planet and its numerous satellites.
Listening to NPR this morning, emergency health care aid workers were training for Ebola treatment. They embark on Sunday to Liberia to join the fight of the horrible disease. Hearing about their training, their fears, their incredible courage…I was blown away. A young girl stated “I have been trained to take care of people no matter where they are in the world.” Inspiring.
There have been hundreds of health care workers who have lost their lives in this fight. I want to honor each and every one of them.
What do you do when all your friends are pregnant or just had babies?
I thought it was hard when I watched everyone get married…
There are few things I have wanted more than anything—for a very long time. One such thing is marriage, a life partner or soulmate; motherhood is another.
After so many years of celebrating with others, I find it hard to share the joy. Instead I am reminded of the voids in my life. The voids that seem to involve unconditional love. Not only do I feel an overwhelming sadness wash over me, I feel the stress of hiding my sadness in a time when I should feel happiness and the guilt at the happiness that I should be feeling and sharing but can’t seem to muster.
Oh, I fear I am not such a good friend these days while dreams of motherhood slip through my grasping fingers like sand.
People ten years my junior who know absolutely nothing about my life give me unsolicited advice.
Sigh, I wonder if they notice my face twitching in annoyance.
