I recently joined a support group for women in life transitions. Each of the women who gather around the little upstairs table have endured great hardships, physical, emotional and spiritual abuse, loss of loved ones, finances, or stability.  And they have all seemed t...

I've been discovering a new found freedom.  I thought that when my mother died, and my subsequent divorce was over, I would be free to do and be whatever I wanted.  Which was true. But I still lived in the house my parents bought in 1949 and that my father built on to...

I have transitioned from one thing to another, one family to another, one mindset to another, many times.  Such transitions tend to put one off-balance for a while. Most transitions are not chosen, but inflicted on us. I have been lucky enough this time to have the cus...
