I’ve been branching out into traditional media as of late and upon invitation.

Coming up soon, you’ll see an essay by yours truly in the August issue of Woman’s Day. The editor stumbled across my blog and I, of course, accepted their generous offer to be featured. I think you’ll all relate to my essay, which took me back to the early days of my single motherhood and the painful process of learning how to let go of fear.

Most immediately you can listen to my interview on the Kim Iverson radio show. I think she was surprised by my positive take on dating as a single mom. Understandable. I was just as surprised when I finally figured out how many perks are actually in our corner.

I’m so happy to have found your blog. I’m trying to scope out other single mom blogs. Now if I can figure out how to “follow you” I will!

You are a woman with many blessings and a very blessed life. If I could achieve half of what you have achieved in your life so far – I’d be over the moon happy. I’m glad you have the oppertunities to share your stories, mistakes made and lessons learned with all of us. I’m quite jealous of your life somedays, the good and the bad. But, at the same time I know I just have to hang in there and my life will be what I want it to be, soon enough. You inspire me to keep going, so thank you. 🙂

I enjoyed your recent article in Woman’s Day. I admire your courage the realization that you took responsibility to live with the good and the bad and come out on the side of good. This is more a question than a comment and I hope you can lead me to a site that will help me. I am a 62 year old mother of (two long on their own). I can’t seem to stop ruminating about my daughter and the possibilty that she will get cancer. She is a healthy mother of two. I am and always have been a worrier and have sought professional help, but no matter how well I do in other areas of my emotional health, the rumination of this thought seems relentless. Any thoughts?
