There are times when I wish I could just curl up in a ball and stay there; just totally disengage with reality at that time until there is a different, easier reality in my life. I’d like to just stay put and not think about much of anything. I catch myself saying over and over, … Continue reading Balm for Hurtful Times
Now that I have had a chance to catch my breath from being in a somewhat disciplined frenzy last month, I’ve had some time to digest so much that I got from that experience. I learned so much from participating. I have to say that jumping into the experience must be much like diving off … Continue reading I Survived NaNoWriMo!

I just saw my daughter off on her first “grown-up” mission trip, as she calls it. She’s been on a mission trip with our family when we went with a team from our church years ago. She was much younger, and didn’t have very much responsibility on that trip. This time she is going with … Continue reading This Mom’s Mixed Emotions; Walking This Faith Walk
