Well hello, Mamalode!

"Clawing My Way to Calm"

Today I have the honor of being one of the featured stories at Mamalode…a print and online publication devoted to the journey of parenthood. . . the authentic, gritty, hilarious, heartbreaking, beautiful mess that is raising children.  I have subscribed for years now and eagerly await the fresh perspectives that I find within its pages.  To my endless delight, Mamalode is launching daily online content.  The essays found here have quickly become daily reading for me.  I hope you will wander over there and see the beautiful stories.  I am humbled and thrilled to be among their featured writers.

Thanks for the stories, Mamalode.  And thanks for the opportunity to tell one of mine.

Here's the essay.  As always, thanks for reading.
