Being Rudri

Today’s Featured Blogger is Being Rudri. I am completely in love with her awesome blog header. And, she happens to be a very talented writer. I got choked up a few times reading her posts.

I am a woman, wife, mother, former lawyer, writer, and runner. Some days I struggle with the how the pendulum of life swings between happiness and sadness.
My blog was born almost two years ago as I coped with life’s unexpected changes. I lost my father from a four year battle with cancer in 2009 , I moved to Arizona after living in Texas all my life, and my mother moved in with us. Life is full of changes, mostly unexpected, so my blog focuses on honoring the ordinary in my life.

And, for your reading pleasure {seriously, she’s a really good writer}:

Entries & Exits


  1. Congratulations on your SITS day! I am sorry to hear about your father. We lost my father-in-law to cancer last April. It’s been pretty tough on my husband so my heart goes out to you.

  10. I am sorry for your loss. Yet, I celebrate the birth of the acknowledgment that you’ve received here on the SITSGirl website as a Featured Blogger.

    Life’s like that sometimes, isn’t it?

    We have to hurt a little bit sometimes, to get something. Because when we hurt a little bit, we know we’re gonna get something… and nine times out of ten, it’s good.

    Congratulations Rudri!
