It’s been a year…

It’s been a year…

It has been almost a year since I last blogged and so much has changed since then.  I haven’t posted about this since last October in this post, but that was really the beginning of it all.  My heart can’t take going through all of it right now, but read that post and you will […]

What’s really been going on with me…

What’s really been going on with me…

So, it has been pretty obvious that there has been some stuff going on with me for the last several months, especially if you follow me on Facebook.  It hasn’t been my story to tell so I had to deal on the down low, which hasn’t been easy.  It has also probably overburdened those I could tell. […]

Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living, Learning, and Feeding the Soul

Living and Learning I am a big believer in trying to find a silver lining or lesson in everything that happens in life.  That’s my way of trying to make something good of situations and experiences that are often anything but good.  Sometimes those lessons are positive; sometimes they aren’t.  But there is always something to […]

The good and the bad…

The good and the bad…

The good… Well, the telling of the children went well!  I told Donovan who responded with a series of “OMG, OMG, OMG” before calming down.  For the younger three, Corey set the stick down on the table and acted like he found it in the trash and somebody was in trouble!  They sat in stunned silence […]

Catching up…

Catching up…

Time flies… It's been more than a month since I last blogged.  I had been good about blogging regularly, but I needed to take a bit of a step back, I guess.  I have been taking a bit of a social media hiatus, light on the blogging, light on the Facebook.  I have been kind […]
