I am exhausted. I have a cold. I want to curl up under a blanket and sleep for a really long time. *Pause* We just got back from a two week vacation. And I’ve crawled to my computer to type this out for you. 🙂 So normally I’d just tell you about what we did, … Continue reading Our Travels
We aren't islands. I am the last to admit that that is the truth. Honestly, I like the idea of being an island. I don't like to rely on anyone for anything. I like only relying on myself. I like caring for myself. Trusting people and accepting help is risky to say the least. There … Continue reading We Are Not Islands

It is a really neat celebration! We read the story of Esther and eat....and eat....and read...and laugh....and eat more. Eating is a big part … Continue reading Happy Purim!
Sorrow. Misery. Hopelessness. Grief. Anger. Worthlessness. Shame. It is easy to let those words define us and become our identity. It is easy to say, “Life is hopeless. There is no future for me. I will always be a worthless failure. If people saw who I really was, everyone would despise me. I know that … Continue reading There Is Hope
