I’ve been trying to write this post for the past week… Last week (which is now two weeks ago!) was a week that kept giving, and giving, and giving… right on into this past week… My oldest son’s break-up with his girlfriend took its toll on all of us. Those of you who are parents of teens know all too … Read More

Heal It Your Way

Annah Elizabeth2 Comments

Every day, loss and healing occur all around us. My eighteen-year-old son is currently experiencing loss in the form of a break-up with his girlfriend of two years. On a grander, more serious scale, hundreds, if not thousands, are entering the journey from loss to healing after the recent tragedies in West Virginia and Iceland.

Two people close to me have nervously asked since reading my first post, “You don’t think he’s having another affair,” (pregnant pause), “do you?” I was afraid that would come up by friends and family, after I’d read what I’d written, and, thus, added the “tenuous as they were…” For those who have attempted and/or succeeded in repairing a marriage … Read More

There are those who have called me a pessimist because I always aim to be prepared as best as I can… Careful planning and a healthy dose of reality tend to keep me from being devastated when something goes awry… Don’t get me wrong, I am a hopeless romantic, and, as such, my spirit is bent toward the fairy tale … Read More
