If A Stocking Could Tell A Story

I have had the same Christmas stocking my whole life. So has my sister. We have never had any other stocking and we are both over 40 (she is well over it…don’t tell her I typed that. She will take my presents back.). We take extra good care of our stockings and it’s not ChristmasContinue reading “If A Stocking Could Tell A Story”

Here’s The Situation

If you know me, then you know I adore an ornament. I mean it. Obsessed even. I collect them for all the things. I buy them for trips, memories that mean more than I want to ever let go, milestones, and just because they are cute sometimes. My tree is FULL and so is myContinue reading “Here’s The Situation”

Y’all, Bob, isn’t fluttering about watching overContinue reading “My father is not a saint, a ghost nor an angel”

Just Another Predictable Tuesday, Until It Wasn’t

We are inching up to the first heaveniversary of daddy’s death. I decided I didn’t want to forget the details of that day from my perspective. He was such a loud light in all of our lives and that is missed more than any of us can truly express. I know heaven is a louderContinue reading “Just Another Predictable Tuesday, Until It Wasn’t”

Year End Review

One word to describe this year: Overwhelming. In every sense of the word. Recovering from all the ways 2019 overwhelmed me will take a minute. Overwhelmed in both the good and bad ways. Overwhelmed with disappointment, loss and frustration but also overwhelmed with goodness, love, grace and much hope. Joy always comes in the mourningContinue reading “Year End Review”
