I have always been that person that gets up early, is always on time, cannot say no, is always busy, embraces a challenge, seeks to learn, wants to "do it",  .... However, on that day things inside of me changed.  My drive was gone.  All I wanted to do was hold on to...

12 Reflections from the first year

This past year is just a tad bit more than a year, because it really started on Christmas Eve when Terry left to be with Jesus. As I sit here pondering what 2018 will bring, I also reflect on what 2017 brought. It was 3:30 in the morning, last Christmas Eve when I was...
