More Snow Pictures

The snow ended late last night and the sun is out today making the forest sparkle under the ice.

We spent four hours this morning clearing out the driveway and the front steps as best as possible.

After all that work we decided we were okay not receiving bills for a few days.

After all that work my husband came up with the brilliant idea that we should go skiing, so he is now doing a little research and we will be on our way soon for an afternoon on the mountain.

In the meantime, here are a few more photos from the snow.

Confirm Your Humanity

I type my email address into the box and click. Another screen pops up: “Confirm your humanity.” I check a box and it is done. Humanity confirmed. But I wonder what am I doing in my life today to confirm my humanity?

What It’s Really Like to Have Anxiety

“People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help.” -Glennon Doyle
I can’t say with any certainty that I am viewed as having it all together. I have, however, been complimented for my ability to remain calm or to calm others. In my days as a project manager, it was a strength often highlighted in my performance reviews. One supervisor actually used to mistake my calm attitude for a lack of understanding the urgency of the issue, until he learned I very much understand the urgency, but can’t address it if I get frantic.

During my application process to become a Hospice volunteer, the coordinator told me after speaking to my three references that she had never seen a single word used so consistently to describe someone. What word is that, I asked. “Calm. Every single person commented on how calm you are.”
