It is Thanksgiving week.  I love Thanksgiving…maybe it’s the food.  That is part of it, but I love the focus we place on our blessings. Last week, my husband and I were having an extra crazy and chaotic week.  A sweet friend in our church called and said she was bringing dinner.   I was so […]

No Looking Back

As a little girl, I’d go out in my grandparents’ garden after my grandfather had tilled the ground. When I tried to follow my grandfather’s footprints, I’d get tickled because his huge prints were cockeyed, almost framing the tilled soil. No matter how funny his footprints looked, they were always in a straight path. Now, […]

In just a few short weeks, my life will be changing drastically.  Preparing for this change for months now will not be an adequate portrayal of how not only my life but the lives of all those around me will be affected.  This will not be a gradual change but rather the kind you’re thrown […]
