Living abroad. Communication. Long-distance relationships.   One of the biggest concerns I have had since moving overseas is how our relationships with friends and family back home will be affected.  Will my friends and I still have things to talk about when we visit?  How will our relationships with our family members change?  Will our kid’s little friends forget them?  How will we feel when we visit our home church: like strangers or family members? Click to read more.

Staying Close to Family and Friends (When You're Far Away) - This Life in Transit

Motherhood. Parenting. Encouragement. Funny. Little children.   I am four years and eleven months into the parenting gig.     This is, in my opinion, more than enough time for the rose-colored mom-glasses that I initially wore to be broken and added to the pile in my house of other things my kids have broken.My three children are spaced closely enough that the hubs and I regularly ask one another, “What were we thinking?” in desperation (and we’re only half-kidding.)

I should have written long ago. I’m sorry. That monumental exchange when your son became my son was more than two years ago. I have not written once. In all honesty, I don’t give you much thought at all. I promised myself that I would. In fact, before yours became mine, in a sentimental-yet-sincere letter to you, I promised that I would remember you, that I would hold you high in my (our?) son’s life. I know that you never read the letter, but still. I promised you. I promised me. How is it…

How is it fair or just or decent that I rarely give you a thought? my son's birth mother.

I was about an hour into watching Marley and Me with my kids this morning when it suddenly occurred to me:  This movie about the dog looked an awful lot like this life with the kids.   Boom. Once that thought hit my brain waves, the similarities were everywhere. I began to view all of mom-life and parenting through the lenses of the many dog movies I’ve watched.  http://www.thislifeintransit.com/parenting-lessons-dog-movies/

To My Babies as They Sleep: Mama Wants You to Know This

As quiet seeps into my soul, all that I lost sight of is clear. Here is what I want you to know, I am desperate for you to know, at the end of this day.

Some things in life are just so predictable.  Death. Taxes. The fact that my kids will ask for a snack literally twelve minutes after breakfast.  And the same old tired rhetoric that loftily makes its worn-out rounds whenever pro-life issues begin to get too much airtime (meaning whenever it gets any airtime.)  Yawn.  We saw it again this past weekend with the annual March for Life.  For some reason, at times like these many critics seem absolutely compelled to share their concern...

Womanhood. Friendship. Sisterhood. Tribe. Squad. Girl gang.   As I’ve perused social media lately, I’ve noticed an abundance of these terms.  (I’m usually late to catch any kind of trend-train, so being wrong about this is totally within the realm of possibilities.) They get a lot of hashtag dedication. I use them myself. My inner girl power feels slightly fiercer when I salute another woman’s inclusion in the circle. Click to read more.
