… down she fell… now what?

This is another blog post that started out as a Facebook status update, but grew too long, and seems appropriate for a blog post. Actually, this may be happening regularly for the next four to six weeks. Thank you to my personal Facebook friends for all your prayers and kind words. It's going to be …

Enjoying the Journey Dad, but Missing You

Dad died eight years ago today. (This last minute post started as a note for family and friends on my personal Facebook page, but before hitting send, I decided it’s appropriate to share here with the world…) I come from a practical, rather stoic family. Birth, taxes, death…just parts of every life. We acknowledge the …

Celebrating 28-years because and in spite of…

Last weekend Steve and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed meals at new-to-us restaurants, visited Fort Worth, museums, Sundance Square, a night in a hotel, church with our youngest and his girlfriend, and reminisced about so many things we have experienced and learned over those years.

A Study Deferred

At the risk of being melodramatic, let me quote Proverbs 13:12: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” (ESV) Let me also warn you that this post is going to be heavy on the pictures. Since my first visit to the Milwaukee Public Library with my mom, …

#4HWW Impressions and Inspiration

I rarely blog about best-selling books, but I just finished reading The 4-Hour Workweek (#4HWW) by Tim Ferriss, and it got me thinking… I chose to read it because it is referred to over and over by many of the writing and productivity bloggers and podcasters I follow. #4HWW permeates my Twitter feed. Tim Ferriss …
