Thankful For All The Good Stuff

Thanksgiving is almost here. Two more days. I love Thanksgiving. I love turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and thanking God for all my blessings. Sometimes, it can be tense. You see family members that you only see a few times a year. Some family members know you, and still see you how you were. Even if… Continue reading Thankful For All The Good Stuff

Strive For a Clear Conscience

I remember my dad smiling and saying to me as a child, "Why, do you have a guilty conscience?", sometimes, when I would ask a question.

Love Is the Bond of Perfection

When things get tough, how do you handle yourself? Do you fight to control the situation? Or, are you like me? I just want to curl up with a blanket and sleep. That is how I felt this morning. Two months ago, my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4, Glioblastoma. She had surgery to remove… Continue reading Love Is the Bond of Perfection
