These conversations can move us from laughter to tears.
    The ongoing confusion of...

    Have you ever wished time away? I know I have...
    When I am going through a rough season I close my eyes and wish the time away, offering it a voice. Praying for space to distance me from the pain until  I feel stronger, after already completing the hard work that healing requires.
    I know from past experience that time does help, although it requires working through the pain to make you stronger....

    How you came into our lives bringing an abundance of joy and laughter...
    We got a dog... well of course you already knew that, but this dog was something we've talked about for a few years now.  
    debated, discussed and finally, decided.
    This sweet man makes me smile endlessly every day as he learns through our teachings the rules of the house.

    can lead to many life changing transformations...
    Twelve years ago today I quit smoking, something even I did not think I could do and I'm sure many others who were aware of my bad habit grew doubtful  of this undertaking.

    Unraveling is not a bad thing. It's not coming undone or losing control.

    People see Deb and comment on how well she is doing...
    Although she is doing better, the progress is intensely stagnant. Having a couple promising days with with Deb will manifest hope, then the bad days return to dampen your spirits.
