How does blogging help you deal with challenges?

Blogging has always been my own form of free therapy. Taking the time and energy to sit and write allows me to organize my thoughts and feelings and usually I come out the other side feeling more at peace with where we are as a family.

Beyond that, it is my readers and the blogging community that I have become a part of over the last five years that truly helps me to deal with life when it seems to be too much. Those comments and outpouring of support mean more to me than I can explain.

What's a book or song that has inspired you?

Oh lord, so… many…books. I have no idea. I think every book I read influences me in a way. (cop-out answer)

After a particularly rough day, how do you raise your spirits?

Spending time with my friends and family is by far the most effective way to raise my spirits. Although I wouldn’t turn down a glass of wine or a glass of milk with cookies either. My spirits are surprising easy to raise.
