December 11, 2016. Not much happened that day the way I would have preferred other than you. At 3:42pm, you came into our world and beautifully wrecked havoc on my ability to keep it together. When your Dad told me “It’s a boy,” that’s where it started. Tears. I had none of that “mother’s intuition” they talk about. If I… Read more →

My Journey through the Gospels: PART 3 – Afraid yet Filled with Joy

Near the end of Matthew, I found a little phrase that I thought was interesting. So short you can easily miss it. Yet intriguing enough that I read it over and over (and of course, underlined profusely). “…afraid yet filled with joy…” Yup, that’s it.

Two Saturdays in a row of funerals for precious people -one from my family and one from Ry’s.  It’s interesting that, although these two men were intelligent and successful, the attributes that struck me to the core while we celebrated their… Read more →


Oh, this guy. This guy is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my 27 years of life and tomorrow it’ll be 2 years since I said yes to forever living my life with him. I thought I loved him that day I said “I do” but I didn’t compared to how much I do now. So much love it hurts, sometimes.… Read more →
