It is human nature to become angry after being hurt. What we do with that anger is our choice.
I confessed my largest fear, based on my past experience, was of losing a child. Little did I know, when making my confession, I would be facing that fear in a very literal way.
The last time we took a vacation was the summer of 2009. At least it qualified as a vacation to me. We went out of town to a friend’s wedding and made it an extended weekend to enjoy a little family time. What do you think, is that a vacation?? When my husband told me […]
Did you ever have one of those weeks where you’re pretty sure you live in “Crazy?!?” Toward the end of my week I could only laugh, thinking my adventures were totally a Facebook post! Before you dash off to my Facebook page, I’ll confess I never made the post. No matter the wording, it just […]
