Give it to God

This week has been absolutely crazy!!    I went to work Saturday at the hospital, was there about 5 minutes when I felt faint.  My co-workers whisk me off to the ER.  Once you have had heart surgery and have any similar problem, you get priority, which was ok.  After my EKG they determined that I […]

The Cancer Rollercoaster

The cancer journey for the patient and loved ones is certainly an up and down path.  One moment you’re at the top with good news and hope (treatments are working, cancer’s in remission, etc.) only to plunge downward in unexpected twists and turns! A year ago my husband and I moved to Nashville while he underwent […]

Managing Life’s Priorities

Over the weekend, I traveled to attend a workshop this past Monday, October 4.  The workshop, “Managing Multiple Priorities,” was led by a Christian trainer who did an outstanding job delivering the subject matter.  About 10 minutes into his presentation, he expanded the workshop title to “Managing Your Life’s Priorities.” One of our assignments was […]
