Storms

A summer storm just darted through our area. It’s been a long while since I’ve heard the rolling thunder in the near distance. Clouds were somewhat dark, and the rain gently tapped the windows.

Wish I Had Known

I recently read where someone admitted that they couldn’t participate in an activity because of anxiety. When I read about her experience, it triggered so many memories of my mom. I know that experience is real. I know that it is painful. I understand from the other side how it not only hurts the person […]
