The Botched Declaration of Adoration
It was my first “adult” relationship, so perhaps my emotional and relational intelligence was not quite where it should have been. After dinner we sat at the table having great conversation about life - regrets, hopes, dreams. His dog meandered ...
The Missed Invitation
It was always a cringeworthy moment in the sixth grade classroom when someone would arrive with “birthday invitations.” Different children handled it different ways. Some were quite gracious and considerate of others' feelings. But there were ...
Some things are worth waiting for!
Waiting isn’t the easiest of things. We live in a pretty immediate world. Let’s take food, for instance. First - the invention of “fast food.” Then microwaves. Now there is the Insta Pot - which frankly, is like magic. Even our entertainment ...
