From the Outside Looking In—National Foster Care Month

I have decided to just write for a while about what is on my heart today, perhaps because I think my writer's block is coming from having such a scheduled set topic for each day and with the winter-that-never-ends (we are now supposed to get snow again on Saturday), my inspiration has [...]

From this Side of Heaven……….

Its been a rough week. Today while sitting in the emergency room with my mother, who is again struggling with the healing time that is required when you have pneumonia, I realized I just felt totally drained.
