learning about life by creating

My name is Pamela, and I have a passion for creating something beautiful that did not exist before, and sharing it with others. When I am creating, I am fully in the moment.

Sometimes I wonder if worry has a purpose.

There's a popular franchise out there that attempts to help people keep their house clean.

Water, Water, Everywhere

I knew I was in trouble when the body aches started. My husband had just left for a two week business trip across the country.

Observations on a Monday

Baking biscuits for a tea party with my daughter was an opportunity that could not be passed up. Or so we thought.

Little Bits of Soul

Sometimes I wonder if I lost myself along the way since becoming a mother.

Top of My Game

The child who could name all the Dragon Tales characters before he was two was having trouble with his color association.

At this time in my life, I am seeking knowledge about my role as a wife and mother. I am conflicted, and I am searching for the truth.
