  • An excerpt from "And It Was Beautiful"
    The test results came in from my PET scan. The cancer has found new borders to invade, new places to overtake. I am struggling with nerve pain. Nights have been the hardest. Because of the recent pain we were not surprised by the results, not caught off guard. But that kind of news still breaks us further.

  • Having a Happy Mother's Day
    Often Mother’s Day is more about what others want FOR us than what we want for ourselves.
