Connection – why I write

Kathy Krugerperspective, red thread31 Comments

A little blog hop has wound its way to me, so I can share with you why I write, in case it’s interesting, inspiring even! That’s connection. A blog-hop is a bit like an old-fashioned chain letter, but there’s no scam being spread, just a whole lotta love. In my case, specifically by the lovely Aroha at Colours of Sunset, … Read More

What it means to be family

This past weekend I spent time with both sides of my extended family – something that rarely happens. I hadn’t seen my brother, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephews since Christmas – we can’t believe where the time went. Does the first third of the year always disappear faster than the others?

I should start by saying it was beautiful, just as the baby who will be my great niece or nephew (OMG) will no doubt be beautiful.  It’s been a while between baby showers (if not drinks).

The worst day of my life (Memoir March)

Kathy Krugeradoption, IVF, motherhood, perspective, red thread, Uncategorized2 Comments

Australia, August 15, 1998  On the worst day of my life, the scan couldn’t find our baby. It was supposed to be the most magical of moments – that first glimpse of our child/children – an eight-week-old embryo or embryos. Just a dot sized shadow on the screen no doubt. Or double dots. The untrained eye would doubtless miss him/her/them. But … Read More
