This blog started out being about my life.  My love of poetry, gardening, art, natural health.  My struggles with God and being a mother. Now my life has turned in another direction, as my daughter Paloma was recently diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy.  I needed a place to not only keep track of her progress but also share our struggles and hope and inspiration for others who are struggling with seizures. 

 I try and count all as grace in my life, but some days it's hard. Weaving the threads is taken from one of my favorite poems by Rilke.
She who reconciles the ill-matched threads
of her life, and weaves them gratefully
into a single cloth---
I like to think that I do that, weave all that I've been given in this life, the good and bad into some small but genuine reflection of the glory of God .
