Leap

Man oh man does moving on take freaking effort to start! However once you build up steam it’s easy to keep going. Like when a train starts moving from the station; at first it’s a little jerky and slow, and the train station isn’t the best sight to see. But then the movements smooth out,… Continue reading Leap

Winds of Change

Life has a funny way of making things work; the people that go in and out of your life, the conversations you have, jobs you change, and the places you go all have an impact on the ebbs and flows of what make up your life.

Burn out, Appreciation, and Grace

One of my friends was talking the other day about being exhausted, not just sleep exhausted but how everything seems to take so much more effort after kids.

Divorce

My parents divorced when I was eight years old, at the time I didn’t understand what that meant. When you are eight years old all you care about is Barbie’s, playing with your friends, and going to the mall (what else can you do in a small town?). I knew other kids whose parents weren’t… Continue reading Divorce
