No More Tears ~ Grief & Faith

No More Tears blog image

My father’s death started a current of events that carried me through the following week. There was so much to be done in such a short time that there was hardly time for me to process what had happened. Family and friends needed to be notified. The burial plot needed to be chosen. We had …

Firmly Rooted

I started this new year with mixed emotions: optimistic, yet cautious. The past few years have had some bad surprises. Are more to come?

Not Too Far From Here

When my son was a toddler, I had a favorite song called, “Not Too Far From Here,” sung by Kim Boyce. I listened to it over and over while singing along.
