A Pocket Full Of Buttons

A Mothers Lifestyle Blog

Giving my cell phone number to my patients with the instructions “call me when you don’t know what else to do.”

Making my children’s beds each morning. Singing them stupid songs about how I love them that I make up.

Keeping the fridge stocked with my husbands favorite seltzer, cold ones in the front.

Hugging my mom really long and hard since my dad died.

Pouring the extra meat grease from the skillet onto my dogs dry dog food every night…

Always letting people cross the street, come into my lane, moving over when I drive too slow…

Challenging myself with my white saviorism tendencies, my intrinsic racism and patriarchical momentum from growing up in a life of middle upper class America in the 70s and 80s. Shutting up in this sphere outside of my house…

Fresh flowers for myself each week.

My whole life is flexing toward love.
