Orphan Sunday
Today is Orphan Sunday....kind of a weird name if you ask me.  I guess I am just not a fan of labels and it feels like calling someone an "orphan" is insulting.  Despite it's name, I think this day is a great wake up call for all of us to look around and se...

I'm No Quitter
Tomorrow marks the 300th day that the boys have been gone.  300 days of not getting to tuck them in.  300 days without hugging them.  300 days of no snuggling deep into the covers to read our favorite books and sing our silly Graham songs.  300 days of the ...
