Gratitude & Grief 


I am reading poetry in front of a warm, crackling fire. My sweet (though slightly sick) babygirl is nestled beside me and our furbabies are cuddled up snoozing beside her. There is music flowing through the house and my husband is in his chair nearby enjoying a glass of bourbon with a full belly after a wonderful home-cooked meal. Everyone is comfortable and my loved ones are all safe… There may be a million things going wrong, but in today’s tumultuous times these are the simplest and the greatest blessings to be thankful for. As full of gratitude as it may be, my heart aches and wishes for healing to come to this planet. 



Praying for Peace & Healing




I don’t pretend to know it all and I don’t expect anyone to agree with me about everything but I do know that when it comes to life, I refuse to let my mind be filled with negativity or focus on petty, insignificant things simply because things like this right here exist in the world…Because even if I am in the middle of a hard time, all around us the beauty and magic of this planet still scream to be noticed…Because to see something like this happen proves there is a god; And if there is a god then there must be hope; And as long as there is hope I can have faith that everything will be okay.

Faith in the Footwork


Sometimes the smallest step can initiate the biggest change in your life. And it’s that first step into the unknown that is often the scariest. It is there that there are no certainties or guarantees and where you can discover that you’ve made the best or perhaps the worst decision of your life. The only light in that darkness is faith – in God and in one another. Faith that calms you knowing either way you will be ok. Like Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”. Risk is not rewarded if you do not take a risk. In the end it doesn’t really matter what happens anyway. All that matters is that you tried. And win or lose, triumph or fail, if we’ve got each other then we already have it all. Have faith in the footwork.
