Listening

Last Wednesday, I had went to town to run some errands before picking M up from school. I called my Momma as I do on a daily basis to check in and to catch up for the day when I instinctively pulled over in front of a friend's brother's store to see her for a... Continue Reading →

Our First 365 Days

A wise man told me back in May that this is a year of firsts for our family. My first birthday, first Father's Day, first 4th of July, on and on without my Dad. I explained to him that we made every day special not just holidays while I appreciated what he was sharing with... Continue Reading →

One Less Place Setting

A month ago... as I sit here and hit backspace several times... not wanting to type the words... let alone admit the words.... we have one less at our table for family dinners.
