words of wisdom, tree and light

I miss my dad. He passed away eight years ago. I’m glad all 10 of my children knew him, although the youngest ones were only five, six and seven when he died. My dad shared so many words of wisdom with me throughout my life. He was the type of person who would say just [ keep reading ]

Years ago, a group of moms I know were all reading the same book and asked me to join them. I did, for a time, until I just couldn’t. I’m all for organizing your life in whatever way you need to do so to have peace of mind. The problem with the book was that [ keep reading ]
