Family – Where My Treasure Is – #captureyourgrief

For where your treasure is, there will your heart also be. — Luke 12:34 Times of tragedy allow true character to flourish. Times of heartache reveal family ties we may not have seen before. As I have said before, we have been truly blessed with my family’s support throughout our journey. Between parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, […]

Right on, Write on.

Keeping a blog is one of those things.  No, not those things. Those things.  One of those things that appear unnecessary and superfluous on the surface.  It “eats” time and takes energy that could and “should be spent elsewhere.  Such as in writing “legitimate” pieces, be they poetry, essays, letters, or even email correspondence.  But […]
