On the Other Side of the Border

November 10, 2019

The children kept hugging us. They just wanted hugs. They wanted to be seen, to be loved, to feel safe. It’s odd — we teach our children to not talk to strangers, and yet when we entered the Shelter de Leona Vicario they ran to us, grabbed our hands, and wanted to play. My Spanish is limited and their English was non-existent, but they kept telling us their names and ...

Two Minus One Equals Zero?

This past August marked the seventh anniversary of my divorce. Growing up, just like most people, when I envisioned marriage, I saw the “they lived happily ever after” ending. Divorce was not in my frame of reference. My parents were married 56 years at the time of my father’s passing, and my grandparents made it to 72 years. They were my role models of what was to be – ...

Three Steps to Building Self Confidence
