  • The Gift of Empathy

    I think we can agree that we’ve all experienced pain and that there were circumstances in our childhood that caused emotional trauma, which as adults, we learn to heal from, and move on in spite of (hopefully).  Dysfunctional home life and bulling just to name a few…  But the older I get the more I […]

  • A Heavy Heart

    Between the tragedy in Oregon and now the one in Connecticut my heart is literally breaking.  Sometimes, regardless of how much faith I believe I have, life just doesn’t make sense…  Sometimes it is impossible to rationalize an idea that presupposes there is a greater plan…  Sometimes I wonder, “Have we so lost our way […]
