Self-Care When You Have the End of School Year Blues

Hi Lovelies!


I won’t waste your time with a bunch of introductory fluff because I’m tapped out and I’ve got nothing clever to write.


Basically, I struggle with transition and change, even change I know is coming and have been through many, many times before. Perhaps you do, too? Perhaps you have a nagging tension or anxiety as you consider the monumental shift that is about to take place from the school year to summer?


I have learned to care for myself in 4 key areas of my life with some very practical help.

MISSED (a poem for my father)

This one is for all my Strong Mamas who struggle with fatherlessness. I wrote this a little while ago as I was processing my relationship with my dad and the incredible absence that defines his role in my life. You are reading a piece of my heart: raw, hurt and searching for answers. Please don’t judge my dad-I know he did the best he could with what he had… though I still don’t understand his choices and totally hold him accountable. It became easier to accept him as he was when I realized my Heavenly Father was yearning to be everything to me my earthly father either would not or could not be. God has been a great Father to me.

ON BECOMING

“Have you heard it was good to gain the day? I also say it is good to fall, battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won.” Walt Whitman

Who am I, Lord?


I have spent years surrendering all


so much effort spent in forgetting


so eager to leave behind


the tarnished life, the waning over-being,


the pain-drenched whore I knew as sin


(but mistakenly thought was me).


And in that exhilarating exodus


I forgot myself.


So eager to lose myself to Christ


I lost sight of all the iron and spark He loves,
