Feel It All

I’m generally not a person who takes long to process. When something happens that requires action, I respond. It may not always be the best response but no grass grows under my feet.  When Matthew was told he most likely has MS, I couldn’t act. I’ve always referred to this as feeling paralyzed until a … Continue reading Feel It All

Roller Coaster

We all know the phrase misery loves company. I don’t think it’s that as much as misery needs company. We need connection when we’re miserable to know that we’re not alone.

One I’ve known since our freshman year in high school. She is my sanity check … Continue reading The Tightrope and Net of Friendship
