  1. I don’t ask why me anymore. I believe everyone, everything I have been through,every person I have met, is in my life for a purpose. A reason, a season, and/or a lesson.

  2. Anne – I am a single mother of 2 really great young adults. I am a professional as well, and hope to tell you some funny, authentic, and encouraging stories on my blog to help encourage and empower other single or just crazily busy parents. But I need to warn you that this blog is where I work out (for myself) some crazy ideas from their bitter, salty, pretzeled-up shapes into hopefully some better-tasting pastries. Any insanely busy person can probably relate to them ... crazy times call for crazy friends sharing crazy stories so we can laugh rather than cry about the way things turn out! (usually for the best, but sometimes that takes a very long time to see)

    I don’t ask “Why me” anymore either. I ask “Why not me?” Why would I be spared tragedies that the rest of the world experience? Mine are difficult and scary, but only growth comes from them.

  3. I spent too much time asking and trying to answer these questions. But it so feels like the natural thing to do. Got to force myself to live in the present.
