Welcome to Inspired Life! I am a mother, but this is not a "Mommyblog" by any means. Yes, I blog about my children (two girls, 12 years apart) but I also write as inspiration strikes me. Current events, women's issues, randomness, sometimes silliness.
Why the name Inspired Life? When I decided to move my writing to an independent blog from another website, I was searching for a name. I looked back on a recent post I had written and that phrase kept coming back to me. It reminds me daily of who I am and what inspires me. That tends to disappear in the daily life of work responsibilities, household responsibilities, and wife and mother responsibilities. With the reminder, I don't let responsibilities to myself get lost along the way.

My Girl

Day 5 is a song that reminds me of someone. I surprisingly had a very hard time with this one!
Finally I settled on one. When Emma was a baby, I was watching the movie My Girl on tv. This song played at the end credits, and I held her and we danced all around the living room. From then on, when she was small enough, we'd dance like that every time we heard the song. She would laugh and laugh.

Those times were so precious to me.

I think her growing up and approaching high school years are making me sentimental. I find myself realizing how little time we have left with her. It won't be long at all until she's off to college and out in the world on her own! But no matter what, she's always "my girl" to me.
