Here We Go, Again

My babies are moving out soon. Last year, in October, Hannah moved out, making our nest empty and I was ssstttrrruuugggggggggggllllliiiinnnggg for a minute.   Then just as I was deciding this was an okay gig and I began to enjoy my clean home, inviting…

#TimesUp #MeToo

I feel like we’re living in history making days.  Things are shifting.  Big things.  Terribly uncomfortable, but incredibly necessary things. The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have brought much to light for many in our country.  There’s a feeling of our entire country being overwhelmed by…

It’s All Relative…

Insanity…

Today I posted this on my fb page: It’s okay to say enough is enough and not be shamed out of it to make it “easier” for others. John 5:1-14 I was talking to myself.  I was standing for my Honey.  I was reaching…

Houses of Cards and Undersized Shoes
