I’m pretty sure there is a God. I’m also confident Jesus was a special person that had a huge impact on humankind.  He seems to have lived a noble life we can learn from. That’s my take on the institution that is religion, those three sentences. I don’t go to church, I’m not concerned with…

Tattered Hem

What does it mean to remember, to never forget? Past the bumper stickers and the rolling banner on CNN, beyond the theme music.

Sunshine Yellow Pants

It appears that lately my blog has been a bit melancholy.  Breast Cancer, 9/11 and heartbreak while important and relevant when taken all at once can be…sad. So, I feel the need for a little sunshine. Katlyn came home from high school yesterday inspired.  I know those two things seem mutually exclusive, but she was…

Silver Thread

I am cleaning out my home office tonight. I have a crazy stack of magazines going all the way back to December that I have not touched. In the midst of my piles I took some time to read. I read an article on Richard Branson, love him. If you have been living under a…
