Hi there! I'm Kati. Married since 12/11/10 and mother of 2 under 3. I'm also a Cranio Mom, which means that I have a child with craniosynostosis. While it affects 1 in 2,000 births, I had never heard of it until Zoey was born. Maybe you haven't either. Welcome to my new world.

Sometimes you just need someone to tell you that you were brave for trying, and that you’ll be brave again. Because life is not easy, and sometimes you jump into the deep end, and you enjoy it; but eventually you have to swim back to the shallow end, getting to a place that isn’t where you wanted to be. Yet, perhaps you weren’t meant for that pool, maybe it was just training for something bigger, maybe you were getting ready for the ocean; the water that you were always meant to dive into.

You are brave; you might be back where you started, empty handed and alone… But you are gonna feel the crash of those waves, because you are not forgotten, and you are far more courageous than you know.

Sometimes you just need someone to say that you are brave, and that’s what I’m telling you now.

Philippians 2:3 (NLT)Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.


My personal application of this verse this month is to admit that I don’t understand a lot of the hatred and fear between many different groups of people, and to start asking honest questions about hot button issues that I have never had to deal with on a personal level. I hate admitting that I don’t understand why, but either I stay in the safe darkness of ignorance or start opening myself up and start learning some new perspectives. It’s a humbling process.

You know how we say, “Don’t tip your chair back, it might fall over?” Yeah, that just happened. The hole is where the back of Zoey’s head hit the wall (just ignore the food marks). The sheetrock in this apartment is really flimsy, and for once I’m glad. She’s completely fine. I, however, am still recovering from a minor heart attack. We may be eating a few meals on the floor after this.

Once you were a child. Once you knew what inquiry was for. There was a time when you asked questions because you wanted answers, and were glad when you had found them. Become that child again … You have gone far wrong. Thirst was made for water; inquiry for truth. By C.S. Lewis (via yesdarlingido)

I resonate with this in my current season of life.
