The Raw Feeling of Truth, A Guest Post and Slice of Life

Please Share

I’m feeling pretty vulnerable today.

I am guest posting on Amy Julia Becker’s blog, Thin Places. She is running a series by women regarding their choices in prenatal testing – my contribution is

I Regretted My Amnio.

The post was an honest one and as such, I feel exposed and kind of raw – like I ripped my shirt open and actually pointed out the fleshiest bits of me that might be easiest in which to hurt me (if you were so inclined).

I go back forth with myself on being fully candid, wondering where and how to draw an effective line between telling my truth and yet not making people feel uncomfortable about it.

I suppose sometimes truth is not comfortable.

Real life is often not comfortable. But maybe through that discomfort, maybe in the honest sharing of our truths, we can heal, be whole, and allow the mirror of our hearts to better reflect the Divine.

Please be gentle with me if you go over and read it.


If you are here from Amy Julia’s blog, welcome! Make yourself at home. I am rearranging the furniture (that makes up this blog) right now, but I’m sure that over sized plush chair will be comfortable. The “about” in the pages above will tell you something of myself and this blog; the “best of” is one of the areas being rearranged  but does include links to a bunch of posts that people seemed to like.

Thanks for being here.

Slice of Life,

from this morning. Moxie came on in my room right after she herself woke up, as is her wont. She digs her morning time with baby “MmmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaacK!!!” (accompanied by her vigorous signing of “baby”). This was them, about an hour ago:

Wow. Incredible post. I'd feel a little vulnerable too, but I am so glad you shared that part of yourself.

I wish you had the photo too of her wanting to climb on your knee, and then tending her own baby doll, as she watched you with her usual blissful smile, tending Mac who was cradled on your other knee. And then putting the hat on her baby doll, as you had put the hat on Mac. The fire of joyfulness she (and Micah - and Mac)... lights in my heart keeps it burning throughout the day and into the night. Blessed, doubly blessed, triply blessed! Actually...7 times blessed. xo
