Life

I attended a funeral over the weekend. A good friend of mine lost her husband. He was young, and they have 3 daughters that are high school and college aged. He had been unwell for a while, and it wasn’t totally unexpected, but it was still a sad shock. My heart...

I Am What I Am

I have had a couple of interesting calls the past couple weeks and it got my brain turning… they had some similarities, and the thing I’ve taken away from both calls is that I offer a very specific thing, nothing more and nothing less. It is what it is, I...

Lifetimes

There is a children’s book by the title, Lifetimes, and it is a nice way to explain death to young children. It talks about different animals, and how some have very short lives, while others have very long lives. Regardless the length of time, that is their...

Much To Be Thankful For

It’s that time of year where folks reflect on everything they are blessed to have, and grateful for. This post is going to be my list of gratefulness 🙂 and I do have much to be thankful for. Since it has been heavy on my mind and my heart, I am going to start by...

Scary Fact

290 people die each day from adverse reactions to a prescribed drug that was taken properly. Wow. I honestly would have expected this number to be much higher, but I’m also not sure how old this statistic is. People think medications and drugs are safe if they...

I’ve Been “Sick” for 5 Weeks

I’d prefer to say I’ve been running a bit less than optimal for about 5 weeks now. It started with a little bit of a sore and scratchy throat, which turned into a pretty disgusting cough that brought brightly colored things up from the greatest depths of...

Still Preparing

I was supposed to be closed this coming Thursday, but cancelled my plans for a couple of reasons. First, we were going camping and it’s going to be a bit too chilly for us. Second, with Lux being sick I don’t want to stress him, so it’s best if he...

Preparedness

The universe won’t send you folks if it knows you won’t be able to handle them or take care of them. If you want to serve at a high level, then you need to have the systems and procedures in place to be able to. Do you have to be able to adapt and modify...
