A Poem Of Thanks This Good Friday

March 30, 2018

How did it feel To leave perfection To come from heaven To face rejection? How did it feel To know what was coming The trial, the judgment, The abuse and the shunning? How did it feel Asking your dear friends to pray And finding them napping Unable to stay awake? How did it feel To wait for the day When one you discipled Would be […]

Wedding Blunders

December 13, 2016

Today is our 13th wedding anniversary.  I still remember the excitement of first meeting Doug.  I spotted him at church with a friend of mine.  “Who’s that cute new guy?” I curiously asked my friend Patti. I remember the first time he told me he loved me.  The excitement of seeing his phone number light up on my phone.  The moment I finally understood what […]

Role Reversal

May 1, 2016

The doctor told us I’d only be in the hospital one night assuming no complications. My nine year old daughter Sydney was adamant.  She would be the one who stayed the night.  “I’m your daughter, so I should get to stay even though I’m a kid.” I let her know the first night might be rough, and she’d probably be really bored. “That’s okay mommy.  You’ll need […]

I’ll Take Care of You

April 24, 2016

The waiting is the hardest part.  I’m better once I know … It started Christmas Day with a seemingly innocent movement.  Hanging the stocking on the mantel had never been an issue before, but this time it triggered a consequence that far outweighed the simple action.  A total neck and back lock-up.  Guess I’m just getting old. Then other strange symptoms came from out of nowhere as my […]

Give and Take

February 15, 2016

We are good for each other and to each other.  A friend of mine recently texted me this message.  We both lost our sons, we both have dealt with health related issues affecting our families for years, and we both have a tendency in friendships to default to giving rather than receiving. Giving comes naturally to me.  Whether it’s encouraging a friend, mentoring someone in […]

Less is More

January 14, 2016

This year I’m on a mission to embrace a new equation. –    =   + Less is more. It won’t be easy.  It involves breaking years of engrained habits – habits that started out with positive intent.  But too much of a good thing became like an anchor to my soul. “Sure, I can do it.”  “No problem, happy to help.”   “Ok.  I’ll […]

Golden Anniversary

September 20, 2015

  It was a celebration … a golden celebration.  A milestone most never reach.  Fifty years of marriage. “What kind of party do you want?” I asked my mom. “I just want my family to be together,” she answered. And together we were.  We hosted at our house.  Sydney loves a party, so we went into serious party planning mode.  Balloons, cake, decorations.  A gourmet […]
