The Hard Road

“You’re an idiot.” “I hope one day you learn how to use your brain.” “What is the MATTER with you people?” “I hope they die in a fire.” “This country is in a sad state of affairs when this person is a candidate for President.” “Criminal.” “Bigot.” “Asshole” “Bitch.” “A bunch of liberal morons.” “Republican […]

I Won’t Give Up

I have been turning the events of Saturday night in Orlando over and over in my mind. I have wondered where we go from here. I have wondered how we recover, yet again, from yet another explosion of violence. I have wondered, more than once, if there’s a place I can bundle up my husband […]

Civil Discourse

A few weeks ago, I opened my email to a message from a local church leader, inviting me to come visit with him about my beliefs on some of the bills that have been introduced lately across our country, dealing with (among other things) LGBT marriage. His email was in response to a fired off […]

An Act of Contrition

“Oh my God, I am heartfully sorry for having offended thee, and I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishment, but most of all because I have offended Thee my God, Who is all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no […]

Taking Steps

I’ve started climbing steps at work. It started out just in the mornings and afternoons, but when I was still barely reaching my minimum goal of steps, I amp-ed it up to every time I go to the bathroom. Since I’m also drinking 900 gallons of water a day, that means I’m hitting the stairwell […]

The Long Road to Home

Last weekend, we left the comfort and safety of home to drive the long road up to my old stomping grounds in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. My sister and her family live in the area, and we had tickets to some pretty amazing Tar Heel games, so it was a trip I’d looked forward to […]

It’s About More than Gun Control

Yesterday, I left work early to pick up my son. Normally, I let him stay until 6 because he’s playing tennis and he loves it, but yesterday it was raining and I was a little scared and a lot sad because of news that had flashed up on my computer screen. Just down the road […]

Best of Friends

Mornings are hectic in our house. Banks works an hour away so he has to get up earlier than he’d like and of course getting a six year old dressed and ready is like herding cats. Sometimes I feel like my life during the week is just me, spinning in circles, holding a mug of […]

Out like a Lamb

When I sat down to write a recap post for last year, I didn’t really know where to start. In a lot of ways, it was a quiet year, and in a lot of ways it wasn’t. In many ways, it was a fantastic year, and in several ways it wasn’t. So my thoughts and words […]

“For” is a World Apart from “With”

“All you ever do is clean,” he pouted from the living room sofa. “You NEVER spend time with me anymore.” I was in the kitchen, unloading the dishwasher and cleaning up from dinner. We’d been from school to karate to a frozen yogurt store and then home and had dinner and I was feeling burnt […]
