The Loss of a Good Friend

November 2, 2014

For weeks now a special friend of mine has been slowly fading into the sunset. Everyday she moves a little slower, and takes about twice as long as she once did to crank up in the mornings. It is such an awful feeling not being able to stop the aging process.   This special friend […]

I love life! It is ever changing, and ever challenging. We never know what the day, week or month will bring. It’s like we get up in the morning and are handed a whole passel of gifts. One day that gift may be a surprise box of happiness, another day may bring bad news, or, […]
