Mustard Seeds

A few years back my father gave me a book about grief that he thought I should read.  He gave it to me along with several others and because I have more books to read than time to read them it somehow got lost in the shuffle of my life.  Unpacking the other day the book resurfaced and something in the title grabbed me.  I put the book on my nightstand thinking I might actually stay awake long enough some evening to peak into it.  I was hesitant about a book on grief

Float Like A Butterfly

I won’t promise to make this my last post about Buddy Too (B2) our new puppy because he’s just so darn cute.  I’m sure he’ll inspire lots of ideas for me but I don’t picture another “Marley and Me” type story coming from his life with us.  It’s only been a week though so who knows! B2 is timid little guy and he sticks very close to his “Mama” as my son Chase likes to refer to me.  I would tell you this is just because he know who feeds him.  My own Mother,

Blessed Beyond Compare

It’s the end of January and I’m just realizing that I missed the start of a new decade.  I’m embarrassed to admit this but today when I was listening to a podcast and the speaker mentioned the start of a new decade I thought to myself, “What?”  Then it hit me that today am January 30th which means we are 30 days into a new decade and I barely noticed the end of the last one. If this admission isn’t embarrassing enough I’m also admitting to the fact that I didn’t realize millions

Penny Rich

Saturday July 11th was my 3 year penny anniversary and it was a banner day! It seemed that everywhere I went I found a penny.  I’d started the day with the hope that I would at least find two so that I would hit the 10,000 mark but the change just kept coming.  By the end of the day the total count was 10,136.  That’s a lot more than a penny a day that’s almost nine cents a day and every one of those pennies bares the same message, “In God we trust.” I
