Change

To the next person who tells me “change would be good for you.” Let me tell you a story. Change. We are all shifting and moving simultaneously day to day; transitioning from one action or idea to another. It’s inevitable. It’s a part of life. I get it and need that as we all do….

Family

Mindless eyes watch you dance around me, gentle, while shivers and thick fog settle into my chest. Many nights of exhaustion plague me on this trip, yet near to you I fight to remain; your laughter and love, healing me from the inside. There are differences between us, yet stepping into your presence, nothing has…

A Moment with Technology and One from The Greatest Generation

My 97 year-old grandmother reads the newspaper front to back and every piece of mail, catalog, and sales paper that comes to her door. She is quite the reader and one who is curious about today’s technology. As I sat in my room this afternoon, pounding away on my keyboard, my grandmother’s voice lingered down…

A Home of Love

Home, a place where you are determined to defeat brokenness that plague your earthly existence that you have been trying hard to leave behind for purpose of doing better, in search of a more desirable love. You are on the fence and struggle to trust or have faith in what you can’t see. You are…

Winter’s Beginning and My Attitude Change

  I awake warm in my cozy room to my nephews voice, “It’s snowing outside.” Instantly, I think, “No! I’m not ready to drive in this stuff,” as I roll over to face the wall, drawing the duvet closer around me and fall back asleep. My alarm vibrates on my bedside book, waking me from…
