Love It is the little things

The idea of Love is so big and so overwhelming some times: Where does it come from? Where does it goes? Would life be worth living without it? How can we love a second child, or a third, or a fourth? It is merely chemicals, like oxytocin and endorphins, in a lovely soupy mix? While I can ponder the Big Things with the best of them, for me, love is in the little things.

Starting Local Care Midwifery

In 1999, my family and I moved to New York from Carbondale, Colorado. We moved here for my first job as a midwife. We moved here with my job contract, a lot of hope, and more than just a few prayers. We drove a U-Haul filled with all our belongings and a station wagon filled with our three kids. We drove across mountains, plains and the great Mississippi. Our finances were tight (our budget could handle an occasional treat at Friendly's, not gallons of organic milk). This move was a stretch for all of us, a leap of faith as a family to support my dream of being a midwife.
