Humiliation
I don't even know where to begin.  Perhaps with this morning. I got out of bed at 6:30am to take Jacob to the ER.  He was with his grandma yesterday.  She noticed he had to use the bathroom more often than normal.  She suspected a UTI and told me to bring h...

Well Look at Me, I'm Coming Back Again
Happiness is a tricky thing.  You think you have it.  Joy is right in front of you.  It's yours.  And then, POOF, it's gone.  Maybe, it was never there.  Maybe, it was a mirage.  Maybe, it was invented deep inside your hopeful mind.   2016, I looked forward...

His Love Will Light Our Way
December 1.  Advent.  It's an event we look forward to every year.  The dragons had been eagerly anticipating the sweet taste of chocolate advent calendars (because they didn't get enough Halloween candy.) This year, I wanted to do something more meaningful...

I've Never Been Defeated and I Won't Stop Now
Ugh!  I haven't written a blog post since May 14th!  How does that happen?  Life, that's how. Been busy.  In a moment of insanity, I enrolled in an 8-week program to pick up a second educator license.  It was intense.  In 8 weeks, I completed 22 credit hour...

On a Wing and a Prayer
