Seven Kids & Still Sparkling!

Thanks for joining me as I share some of my personal journey, life as a single Mom to my seven children, and some of the struggles, successes, and sadness along the way.


“Mom Tears” are reflections and writings of my heart as I love my children through heart-wrenching, inspiring, and joyful experiences in life. It’s always an adventure!

Most days when I finish work, I turn in the driveway and think,

What mess am I pulling into today?”

Filled with serious issues and humour – tears, honesty and giggles – this blog gives you glimpses into the trenches. I might be walking through mud some days, but I won’t give up my high heels!

Whine and Thoughts includes some personal poems (gulp!) and other miscellaneous writing from my journey. 

If you’re a woman, you’re probably going to relate to something: you might be trudging through your own trenches right now, and I want you to know you’re not alone.

 Hope Glitter in the Trenches brings some sparkle to your life!

Thanks for being here,

❤ Leigh
