“Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.” 
― St. Pope John Paul II

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.

  1. I think this particular ‘Do not abandon yourself to despair’ version was spoken in Croatia in 1994. Pope John Paul II used the ‘Easter people’ theme variously in his preaching.
