Happy Birthday Mom

As I read posts on Facebook and other social media, I am realizing many people relive their losses as the calendar rolls through the year. The older we get, the more loss we inevitably experience.

A Little More Sense(s)

I love weather. Growing up on a farm definitely ingrained in me an understanding of how it impacts our lives in a multitude of ways. I’m always paying attention. God gave us five senses.

Six Times

I’ve been busy this week – trying to recover from our trip to India. It has been a trying time waiting for my body to flip from the 10.5 hours time change. Gratefully, God created our bodies so uniquely that we are able to do that with a little patience. I have written two stories about my mom’s journey since
