Thanksgiving Blessings

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the US.  I am blessed to be visiting my mom in South Carolina for the week.  Games of Yahtzee and comfort food have adorned the week, with plenty more to come!  Here are a few random thoughts on some not-so-random blessings. My dad was transferred with his company right

Always Thankful

Remember when I said I was going to do one of these posts every Wednesday this month?  Oh well… this turned into something different than originally planned, and is finally being completed.  But hopefully, it will touch you in some way. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am continuing to keep myself focused on the

Sacred Sisterhood

Today is Gabriel’s birthday.  He would be 23 years old if he was still with us on this earth. 23!  I am getting old. Just before I turned 23 years old, I moved to Danville for a six-month music therapy internship at the VA hospital.  I had no intention of staying in this community, and

#WorthRevisit: Back to School Evangelization

Dusting things off here, and what better way to do that then to link up with #WorthRevisit posts!  This way, I don’t have to write anything new tonight…yay!  This post was originally posted on September 11, 2016 and I felt it was timely for today.  I will be linking up on Reconciled to You and Theology

#WorthRevisit: Climb Every Mountain

I have been working on a few non-writing projects, but decided to dust things off here.  The perfect way to do that is to participate in #WorthRevisit posts, linked up at Reconciled to You.  This post was originally published exactly three years ago.  I had started blogging about our Italian vacation, using my husband’s tablet

#WorthRevisit: #EveryLifeisaGift

It’s time for another Wednesday #WorthRevisit. Plus I am continuing my focus on Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. Tomorrow is Gabriel’s birthday.  He would be 22 years old if he was still living on this earth.  Hard to believe it sometimes.  I will be speaking next week at the local Pregnancy and Infant Loss
