Letting go…

Our tiny little family has been trying to deal with being let down by someone that we love, over and over and over again. I can say with a certainty that we would not have afforded them so much latitude, for so long, if they were not family. It is painful for Frank and I […]

Will you help us?

Frank, through his job, has an opportunity not only to meet a variety of people, but to touch their lives. This reality is what makes his time away from us bearable. He does not do the typical job you would think, but like many in his field he tries to make a difference. On his […]

I can’t find my own words today…I don’t know what to say because I simply don’t understand. It is hard to watch others in pain…harder than I imagined it was for those that watched me. It is hard to deal with my own pain at the same time. All I can say is our world […]

Today I am just not doing well.  I wish that I could say that I was, but I am not.  I am getting through the last of the “hard days” before my enter my reprieve period.   It sounds so weird to say that, but it is true.  Once I get the kids settled into their […]

I tried in my last post to let go of the fact that my words were stolen…and I sucked at it.  That is mostly because finding that out took some of the joy and healing away from me (when I write).  I have decided that I will make my blog public again, I am very […]

Love Conquers All

I just read a book for school called “Belle Prater’s Boy” by Ruth White…it is children’s literature…that had a passage that got me thinking…“Aunt Belle had left Woodrow on purpose just like my daddy left me. Not because they didn’t love us. They did. But their pain was bigger than their love.” In the book […]
