A Love letter to YOU

I was driving my husband’s car the other day. It’s new and I don’t drive it often so I don’t really have all the controls figured out. He had been listening to AM radio and I was trying to figure out how to get some music on as I drove… I was definitely practicing some …

Wishing and hoping

Do you have hopes and dreams? Things you want to see or do before you die, goals you want to accomplish. Milestones you are working towards? I know I do.  I want to have chickens one day, and a boat on a lake, and there’s this person I dream about being one day too; my …

How to be more resilient

When I think of the word resilient I picture in my mind a freshly waxed windshield being pelted with a ferocious rainstorm. The water doesn’t even stick. It just rolls right off. It’s as if the windshield isn’t even being touched. Life’s rainstorms can come in many forms, but they will likely all fall into …
