Shingles...through Mom Colored Glasses...

5 years ago

I sat down to talk about something upbeat, about how career opportunities come in all shapes and sizes. When that didn’t work, I tried talking about intuition for moms. When that failed miserably, I realized the story I needed to tell today. A tiny slice of my journey. It’s not nicely packaged or carefully scripted, but it’s real…down to the abrupt ending from my son busting into the room and my hope that someone else might need to hear this today.

 

Oh, and I’m sorry that I thought only old people get shingles. I know that now…and now you do too…
