Best-man speech

When Nick asked me to be his best man, my heart jumped with excitement. I remember my skin tingling, tears building up in my eyes. I was so proud. It didn’t last all that long though; as he then proceeded to tell me that I was going to be CO-Best man with Dr. […]

Love is smiles

I first noticed her twinkle and smile before I knew her name. She worked for a therapy company on the campus that I did HR work for. I used to peak into her office and make a funny face just so I could see her smile. I didn’t know her story. No idea […]

Unraveling

Have you ever noticed that the same things happen to you, in different relationships, different jobs, different circumstances? No matter what you do, there it is?

Chaco

On my travels through the United States I came upon this diamond, Chaco National Historical Park. It took thirteen miles of rough road, so rough it is advised you call ahead to ensure it is drivable, into Chaco Canyon. I hadn’t researched the park at all, going there only after a passing encounter […]

Gratitude Ignited My Flame

Gratitude quote by A. Schweitzer

When I feel the sun kiss my face; I am grateful, every single time.  Eating creamy, vanilla based ice cream, with chocolate sprinkles, I am grateful.  Waking in a heated house in a warm bed, I am grateful. Hearing baby pitter patter as they hustle to and from, or their laughter and toddler chatter, my […]
