A Tidal Wave of Grief

What if Everything You Want is on the Other End of Patience

A Lesson in Gratitude

Beyond the Scale – The Missing Piece

I have always heard that the holidays are a hard time to be missing someone. Up to this point, they have been difficult, but this year has been the hardest. This is now my fourth Christmas without my husband and I am finding it to be one of the most difficult! I am not sure […]

The Spirit of the Season
