Taking a Break From Facebook

I’ve decided to delete my Facebook apps. Those of you who know me personally, know that I am a true advocate of Facebook. I have friends all over the globe and Facebook allows me to keep in touch. Lately, for whatever reason, I’ve been feeling “blah”. I haven’t been able to pinpoint what is causingContinue reading “Taking a Break From Facebook”

Cherish These Days… They’ll Be Gone Before You Know It.

Feisty little red-head boy… His birth completely changed our worlds. We were young… Supposedly adults. This child forced us to second guess our maturity. Long nights… With little or no sleep. Tantrums… Made me question my own sanity. Kind hearted women… Said, “Cherish these days… They’ll be gone before you know it!” All the while,Continue reading “Cherish These Days… They’ll Be Gone Before You Know It.”

Independence Blvd

You’ve grown up too fast. Before my eyes… so hard to grasp. I’m sad… I’m happy… I’m frightened… I’m excited. Walking behind… Your little five year old legs.

Heaven By The Sea

Together we stroll… Her tiny hand, holds on tight. Walking beside the ocean, she giggles as each wave catches her feet. Her stature tiny, in comparison to the vast… powerful body of water. Yet, she’s not afraid. She is filled with giddiness. Together we sit, staring out at the sea. The two of us watchContinue reading “Heaven By The Sea”

When Your Child Ministers to Your Heart

Tonight my son Robby and I were cleaning out the van and a song came on the radio. The song was “Thank You”, by Ray Boltz. This past November I sang this song at my uncles funeral. Suddenly, I missed my uncle deeply and tears began falling from my eyes. My son suddenly became quietContinue reading “When Your Child Ministers to Your Heart”
