Infusing Love: Smells and Sounds

The senses of sound and smell are very powerful. Sometimes a smell can spark a memory of a wonderful meal simmering on a stove or the smell of the air from a perfect breeze on a spring day can transport us back. The sounds of elevators dinging as people anxiously wait their turn and the sliding […]

Infusing Love: Naughty or Nice – It’s a Choice

One of my co-workers often uses the phrase unconscious incompetence. It essentially means you just don’t know what you don’t know. The recent election surprised many. I’ll stay away from the politics but I can’t help but reflect on the flippant comments made by a constitutional law professor post-election who referred to those who were […]

Infusing Love: Growing Up So Fast

  This week’s Infusing Love entry is a poem co-written by our longtime blogger, Kari, and her daughter, Scarlett. I’m learning to be safer, watch my step, and stay out of harms way. Each day a new lesson, on how to exercise and how to play! I might start off feeling intimidated, scared or shy. […]

Infusing Love: Taking a Stand

  Every day we advocate for our children and ourselves. Our advocacy ranges on a small scale such as requesting a drink refill when we need one at restaurant to advocating for our children on a larger scale when requesting a doctor to infuse your child before any sort of x-ray when in an emergency […]

Infusing Love: A Boy & His Dog

Thomas had a stuffed animal when he was little. “Dog*” went through a lot with us. He was a constant companion, friend and source of comfort. Dog stayed in the hospital, went to clinic visits and traveled with us. We would literally pack factor for an ER visit with one hand and grab Dog with […]

Infusing Love: He Needed Me

I am exhausted. So very exhausted. I am pleading to myself that there isn’t something wrong; that the whimpers and small cries I hear as he sleeps aren’t there and that it is from sleep deprivation. I am drifting in and out of sleep on the baby glider that still graces his room even though […]

Meet William from Tennesse. William […]

Infusing Love: Finding His Voice

    Recently a friend shared a quote that really resonated with me: “A negative mind will never give you a positive life.” I recited that quote at least one hundred times the day she shared it. I even had to find a pretty Google image of the quote, print it off, and hang it […]

Infusing Love: Sisterly Bond

I adore the “On This Day” feature on Facebook. It is a wonderful way to look back at the past to see what has happened on any given day in past years. It often reminds me of those moments that may have slipped my mind in a blur of parenting madness over the last fifteen […]

Infusing Love: Stealing My Joy? Never!

  For over a year my family has lived like most everyone else in the world.  We get up, go to work and school, have fun, go on trips, eat and play….it’s all very good.  Our oldest son has gone away to college and our youngest is in the fifth grade. The blessing has been […]
