I got a text last week from a dear friend of mind. She is one of those heart sisters who I met in church many years ago. Have you ever met someone who you just hit it off with immediately? It was like I had known her my whole life. We had the same high … Continue reading »

Sharing Light

On a recent walk that I took, I couldn’t help but notice that the light was particularly stunning. Maybe it was because it was a perfect fall day or maybe it was because I was feeling really down.

Still Standing

I had a really hard day yesterday. My hubby and I had to make a really difficult, but necessary decision. I shared it with some of my heart sisters at church.

I got a text yesterday from one of my high school friends, inviting me to a graduation party for her daughter. I think I must have gasped audibly when I read it because the man sitting across the room from me looked up from his phone. This child who is graduating from high school is … Continue reading »

Treasuring People this Busy Season

  As Christmas draws nearer, I seem to get busier. My kids will be out of school in a few more days, so their gifts need to be wrapped. They are teenagers now (almost) and it’s not like I can put them to bed anymore and get things accomplished while they sleep. More often than … Continue reading »
