Curve Balls…

Last week began a slow descent of sorts for me. I began getting stressed about the businesses and how it hasn’t grown as fast as I’ve wanted or expected…how the remaining IRA funds are dwindling away…and the baby’s coming…how there’s so much that needs to get done..and then to top it off, the kids’ laptop […]

Thomas Nelson offered up another treasure in The Noticer by Andy Andrews. I don’t often write this, but this book is a must-read. The book tells the story of Jones, as he’s known to many, an old drifter that offers words of encouragement and great wisdom to people in need of the hope that only […]

While the Cat’s Away…

Ok, so maybe no proverbial cats and mice, but JoAnn is off on a retreat until Sunday late afternoon/evening, leaving me with the 3 kiddos…including the very recently-weaned Joshua. So it’ll be a little more interesting than normal… But it’s already started well. Quiet evening at home with dinner at a…ahem…more normal time, eaten and […]

Comments Off on Thanks to…

There are so many people to thank for helping get me to the funeral last week. Many contributed monetarily, and I’d especially like to thank them by listing their name, where they heard about the need, and a link to their website/twitter/facebook account. Tell them thank you as well! There are two that have asked […]

There and Back…Part 3

Ah, so we finally get to the spiritual aspect of the trip. Surprisingly, this one is actually much easier for me to put into words than the previous part, mainly because it has been the focus throughout this entire process. For me, the trip and the time leading up to it were all done as […]

There and Back…Part 2

So how do I explain the emotional aspect of the trip? This seems to be the most difficult portion to describe, partly because I am still processing it all, and partly because I’m not so much the emotional type, so it is harder for me to put into words. So I will update this post […]

I am so overwhelmingly humbled by the support that enabled me to get a cross country for the funeral. I’ve contacted those who gave to request permission to publicly thank them, and allow you to thank them as well by emailing or visiting their site, or following them on twitter. I’ll be doing this later […]

There and Back…Part 1

So I made it, there and back. And in between. There is so much to write about that I nearly don’t know where to start. This trip was so many different things. If you’ve read the previous posts, you know what this trip wasn’t: * Planned * Expected * Affordable And yet I went. I […]

I know a lot of people are anxious for more info about the trip, but as I began to write about it, I realized that there’s much more for me to write than can get in not just this evening, but in a single post….not to mention all the processing I’m doing. That, and today […]
