Grace For Change

  This past weekend we moved my youngest to her college dorm. I can't believe how fast this has happened. My son (my oldest) will be a senior in college this year. It seems like just a couple of years ago they were my little kids arguing about which Veggie Tales video to watch. I... Continue Reading →

Discovery, Relationship & Trust

I woke up this morning feeling sad. I guess there are lots of things that contribute to that. My mom passed away in 2013. I have experienced what seems to be failures upon failures. And my deepest and most haunting of failures are relationships that are most important to me. Those relationships are not gone.... Continue Reading →

Family ReUnion

Then at some point, we decided that we wanted to be independent. Maybe we started to get on one another's nerve and... Continue Reading →

Christmas 2008

Today I am in South Carolina with my kids, their mom, and her husband. It has been a good day. The kids got lots of gifts. The parents got lots of gifts and everyone is having a good time. Shelly (the kid's mom) got a new digital camera and, between her camera and mine, we... Continue Reading →

My Aunt Passed Away Today

My Aunt passed away today. She was my Mom's sister. She had been on dialysis for years but earlier this year, in June, she had a stroke. Though she survived she was never the same. She could barely talk where people could understand her. She couldn't walk anymore. She had to be fed with a... Continue Reading →
