Growing With A Teenager….

Life has changed A LOT. It looks nothing like I imagined. It isn’t just the divorce, the years of being single, finding Elizabeth and starting over. The long game chess moves are catching me off guard as the game plays out. From my bible college years forward, I thought my portion of making the world […]

Flying into the New Year

The last few weeks the old beloved Piper Cherokee I rent has been down for maintenance. Lots of parts being shipped out to be refurbished means… Jeff is grounded for now. There have been lots of projects to work on and long walks to take. During the lull of ‘immediate life attention things’ I was […]

Victim Mentality 101

Boy, the truth is, I can be a walking talking victim. I would much rather put my situational stance on someone or something else then take ownership of the pieces and parts that are mine.

For Today and Every Day Ahead of Us…

A Prayer Tolkien said “A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities” It is true that today, the dream I strayed into long ago has become real. My heart has found its home with you and I commit my life to be your husband. I pray today, my heart, life and my being, […]

Birthright

I have noticed that I keep circling this topic and I am not ashamed of printing it over and over. Clearly I have an issue here. Maybe you don’t, but I suspect we are all part of the the mechanism that makes this work. Just as a self quiz… how many of you wake up […]
