I am sitting outside on the newly swept front porch of my home. It is quiet, a rarity in our busy lives of work, laundry, the homework & craft projects of two almost-tweens, all crammed into a 400 square foot 1-bedroom apartment. I have come to crave, and selfishly guard, my moments of absolute silence in the evenings. I sit here, with two affectionate kitties at my feet, the scent of citronella and mint in the air, and feel very grateful for my family & life.
At Times Like These

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
