Warrior Pose

I stand at the brink of sunrise.
Facing this dawn, I take in all the lessons of the past year.
The friendships lost and gained.
The courage of friends battling from the brink of death.
My writing craft blossoming in ways I once only dreamed possible.
A nightmare storm leading to the crafting of our dream home.
The tragic loss of precious little school children deepening my appreciation of my own dear little one.
Now, I stand poised for the challenges ahead. A complicated IVF cycle already underway. Rebuilding our home. Taking an exciting writing leap. And a hundred new challenges and lessons yet to unfold.
I am a warrior.
I am ready to step into the sun.


About domesticpolichick

My life is a crazy jumble of sitcom-level domestic hijinks and fast-paced political reporting in the nation's capital. Breastfeeding while doing a phone interview with a senator...yep, I've done it and no, I won't reveal the name. Toddler calling a member of Congress on the cell..yeah, that really did happen. Pregnant in high heels on Capitol Hill trying to chase down a particularly grumpy senator, yeah...that was nuts. But what can I say? I'm just one domestic polichick trying to figure out the work-life balance.
