St. Croix. Hurricane Maria. 100+ mph wind. A 2×10 piece of lumber and a palm tree. My neighbor’s daughter took this photo. I can’t stop looking at it.
In a split second, this tree was withstanding the onslaught of a storm and then, without warning it was pierced by a plank of wood. The wood did not shatter the tree. The tree stands. It is split down the middle, and will never be the same; but it still stands.

Transition: the process or an instance of changing from one form, state, activity, or place to another. Easy? Hardly. And right now, it seems that everyone and everything I know is in some form of transition.

Frank, and Mike — you know who I mean, and if you are like me, you watch them often. American Pickers is one of our favorite TV shows, and these three people are the reason.

Today is National Teacher Day! Imagine that, on the Tuesday before Mother’s Day we celebrate teachers; and who is the very first teacher of every person who ever lived? Mom!
Since the one who teaches always learns the most, it seems fitting to share a bit of what I have learned through motherhood. These are lessons I might not have learned in any other way, because if there was a better way to learn them, God just might not have seen fit to give me children.

It is a new year, barely beyond the middle of January and I suspect most of your resolutions (like mine if I made them anymore!) have faded into history. How’s that new diet? New reading plan?
