  • Comparison…The Thief of Joy

    Turkey day is over, and the stockings are hung. The dash to the big day has begun. Black Friday was a success and cyber Monday has great deals.

    The day after the authorities had contacted my mom and told her I wouldn’t be returning home, I had my first of many hard conversations with my mom and the first and last one with my sister. I won’t ever forget it. We were at my Nanee and Cha-cha’s house in the living room and […]

  • Love Thy Neighbor

    When you move into a new house, you don’t get to pick your neighbors. As busy as we are, it takes time to get to know who lives next to you. I first met my neighbors not long after I moved in with Jason and they were very kind. Jason had told me how much […]

  • Legacy

    I have a unique 7-year-old boy. Since he was just tiny, he has asked questions about God. We would be driving down the road and he would say, “Mom! Can we talk about God?” In the sweetest, tiniest little voice. It drove my girls nuts because I would turn the radio down to answer any […]
