Things I Believe

In the past few days, I have encountered several situations and conversations that have made me wrestle with what I believe. I think this is important, as it is in the wrestle that we hold on tighter. I think, also, that it is important for us to name the things we believe and to be…Read more Things I Believe

I’m so tired of all the crap.

I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday!  I always love this time of year.  I mean, October through December is my favorite time of year, but Thanksgiving is like the catalyst to keep me at home, listen to Christmas music, snuggle up by the fire, and to deeply enjoy the people in my…Read more I’m so tired of all the crap.
