How to Live With the Hard Questions

    Have you ever had a question you just INSISTED be answered?  Maybe it was about why the horrible breakup happened, why your body or mind won’t stop hurting, why the job didn’t work out as planned, or a plethora of other life situations you want to understand.

When Terror Strikes

Yesterday’s bombings in Brussels disturbed me greatly.  I was in that airport last summer on a trip with my daughter.  I have been thinking of the kind lady who helped us with a travel delay.  I hope she is ok. I’m sure the terror in Brussels horrified you as well.  Or maybe, after regular exposure… Read More

What’s Love Got to Do With It?

Soften Around the Pain

  “Can you allow your greatest pain to become your greatest teacher”?  I’ve heard this challenge issued before.  Maybe you have too. It makes me take a deep deep breath… Pain a teacher?

Happy Father’s Day to all the Daddys, Fathers, Dads, Papas, Grand Daddys, PawPaws, all the men who are engaged in the raising and loving of their children!
