Thankful for My Many Faces

Since it is the season of giving thanks, I wanted to touch on something I am especially thankful for the older I become, and that is my many faces. The many faces of my personality, that is!

Hard Doesn’t Mean We Can’t Be Happy

But I know there are blessing that […]

Pitchers

Everyday, I sit in my car in the pickup line at my daughter’s elementary school. I park next to a big, beautiful, grassy field. One day, last year, as I sat and waited for my little sweetheart to get out of school, I noticed that there were men working in the grassy field. They were […]

Sunday Night Blues

There is an unfortunate sickness that often plagues my house before the start of the new week – we call it Sunday night blues. Symptoms include: early onset Monday woes, stress about the week, sudden remembrance of unfinished homework, gripping anxiety, tears, and inability to sleep or refusal to go to bed in hopes that […]

How Do You Spend Your Time?

I watch countless episodes of crime investigation shows on Netflix, read books about fantasy and romance, or scroll through Instagram.
