It’s Possible {#Tuesday@Ten}

I have been in a funk the past few days. People notice, and comment.  I thought that I would "reset" after Mother's Day.  Everyone told me it would be hard.  I read every bit of advise from people who have been where I am.  I thought I was ready, although I was prepared for it...

Past memories {#Tuesday@Ten}

Last Friday my mother passed away. When we placed her on hospice, I wrote her a note saying things I knew my voice could not relay through cracks and tears.  I let her know how much I loved her, the things I admired and respected about her, and promised that I would be okay.  I asked...

Last week, I was looking forward to writing on trust. Instead, I... Continue Reading →

I have written letters to the future me, but never to the past me. Dear J.J. First I will just let you know you will outgrow that nickname when your about sixteen. It will take a couple more decades for your family to catch on that you are serious about it.  With that name change... Continue Reading →

People may find this hard to believe but even those who find themselves... Continue Reading →
