Happy Tuesday, Journeyer! I hope you had a nice holiday weekend with family and friends! I started out my week with a lunch date with Beauty. She’s twenty-one and has been doing what healthy teenagers and young adults need to do…finding herself. It’s odd how all too often the finding of oneself includes the pushing away of those that love … Read More

LET FREEDOM RING! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about pulling away from Big Guy’s new home for the next four years. Let freedom ring for him. Let freedom ring for Warren and me. Don’t get me wrong. I love my children with every fiber I have, but I have always considered my role … Read More

Dear Journeyer, Sometimes we find ourselves swept up in day-to-day drudgery, dreams, and drama. This past week was filled with all of those.

Chuckle… I guess there really are two sides to nearly every emotion… My youngest was driving … Read More

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! As I round out this day, I feel a sense of accomplishment. I slept in, had a little fun playing phone games, completed a few tax tasks, transported Big Guy to a soccer event an hour from home, made a few scrumptious meals, completed this post, and worked a little on my upcoming speech. I am overjoyed to have … Read More

Angels, Friends, and The Fool

  Happy Sunday (now Monday), Journeyer!   It’s been an equally delightful and dreary week. The frigid temps forced me to break out my coat of all winter coats, a knee-length down parka, and my furry hat. You know it’s cold when I break out a hat. Brrrr… I especially miss sunshine this time of year… We arrived home one … Read More

“Think without boundaries.” Dove Promises® Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer! I’m not really sure where this week went, but it is behind us. Maybe, if you’ve had a rough week, you’re happy to tell it sayonara! Maybe, if the past seven days have brought you luxurious comfort or good news galore, you wish it would linger a little longer… Regardless, though, the … Read More
