You know what?

You know what?

It's kind of annoying when you're looking for tissue paper and you stumble across your daughter's Christmas dress.  Super annoying.  It is such a cute dress.  And her fattiness and giggles would have looked adorable in it.
Cats really like Christmas trees and ornaments. And they also like to sleep.  All day long.
NPR did a story on how scientists have found that mothers retain fetal cells for decades after the child is born. For more, go to this site to listen or read the transcript.   So incredibly comforting.  
Maggie is with me.  Every single day.  Every minute.  She's more than just in my heart. And, all you other moms who have lost babies?  Your sweet ones are with you too.
My heart goes out to Michelle Duggar.  Yes, she's really good at having kids.  Too many kids? Probably.  Are they people I would probably be friends with?  Probably not.  Do they need to lay off the J names?  You betcha.  But, they've still lost a child.  This Huffington Post article tells more about it. And, as much as it saddens me, I appreciate that it is bringing the topic of miscarriages and stillbirths out in the open.  The article mentioned:

  • The risk of miscarrying in the second trimester drops to just one or two percent.
  • Research shows that women who experience miscarriages or stillbirths experience the same levels of symptoms and sandess- no matter how far along they were.  So, it doesn't matter if you were 6-weeks along or 30-weeks along.  Coping with loss is hard and heartbreaking and a journey.  No matter what.
  • Michelle Duggar may not get the sympathy others do, as she has so many children already.  However, it's important not to judge each other's grief.
Maybe people will actually start talking about this.  And realizing that it's an issue.  A huge issue that is never addressed.
Well, it seems like either hawks are proliferating like crazy
or I'm noticing them more.
Or maybe Maggie is trying to tell me that she's with me.

Whenever Dave sees one now he says, "If we were Native Americans, we'd be pumped."
I'm pumped anyways.
Even though I'm a German-Arizonan-Minnesotan-Kansan.

Well, someone sent me some information about hawks.
What hawks symbolize to Native Americans.

A hawk is called a messenger, protector, and visionary.
The hawk indicates that you are awakening to your soul purpose; it can teach you how to fly high and still stay grounded.
The hawk is an animal of flight; it sees everything while looking down and, therefore, it has a larger perspective of what is going on down below.  

It can see the smallest creatures below. 
Like Mags.

Hawks teach you to be observant and they soar with the power to overcome difficult situations.  They soar in circles over the life of the earth, asking you to circle over your life and view it from a higher perspective.

If a hawk has soared into your life, you require a higher perspective. You need to see the details of what is going on and look at the bigger picture.  Take a look at your situation from above.

Much easier said than done.
But, I'll keep trying to fly high and stay grounded.
To have a bigger perspective.
To soar with power and try to overcome difficult situations.
