I wish I could fix everyone. I wish I could just reach in and take away their illness. I can't so I must share words....words of prayer, encouragement and sometimes advice.

It makes me think of how we often allow the small things in life to overpower us. This week my husband … Continue reading Leap of Faith
This week has been the hardest one yet. Last Tuesday I was slammed with sadness and depression. I actually sobbed all day, unable to stop. A few days later the anger started up.
