It’s  Friday and while my friends and family members in America are already taking part in the Black Friday madness, I am sitting here snuggled up, warm on the couch reflecting on the wonderful day we had together, yesterday! I do believe it was my favorite Thanksgiving yet, as a family! And I don’t mean… Read More

I just want to start this post with “thank you” I was completely taken back this morning as I checked my email to find an overwhelming response to yesterday’s post.

So, I spent the end of last week getting ideas together for future posts dealing with differences. I had every intention of using this week to work on those… But then the weekend came… And reminded me what this week might hold for me.   Exactly one year ago today, I sat in a hospital… Read More


So, I’m guessing you figured it out by the title, but  I’ve been giving my blog the “silent treatment.” The last few months have been like a roller coaster ride!
