Processing the Tragedies of Hurricane Harvey

Processing the Tragedies of Hurricane Harvey

Yet, we are all still deeply affected by what happened below us in South Texas.  We all have family, friends, and business associates located throughout these regions hit hard by the storm…especially in Houston.  My nephew and his young family have lost everything.  My esthetician cancelled our appointment dealing with family who lost everything in…

Hurricane Harvey, Flash Floods, Oh My….

Hurricane Harvey, Flash Floods, Oh My….

  I admit it…I am a chicken! When authorities say to stay inside because of Hurricane Harvey, I obey.  However, my husband just went out to meet some friends for a “hurricane run!”  I am fine with my computer, candles, cooking, cell phone….I am just not a live-on-the-edge kind of person.  We are expected over…

Taking Time Out to Honor Pappa Joe

Taking Time Out to Honor Pappa Joe

I know it is a day early, but I wanted to take today and pay tribute to my husband…father of three and grandfather of three! He is a gentle warrior…a strong, loving man who guides, supports, and gives time to each and every one of them.  Our daughter lovingly titled him “Pappa Joe” when she…

Avoiding Reunions…What I Learned

Avoiding Reunions…What I Learned

I sat in this room alone for a few moments on Saturday and pondered why it took me so long to return.  Over forty years ago, I lived in the sorority house and even held an office (Song Leader…which was tons of fun).  But, college was emotionally hard for me mostly due to my family…
