A Year Without Sheri – (aka: A #fiveOverFiftyFOREVER update) – June 18, 2020

Our sweet friend Sheri died one year ago today. I typically don’t use the phrase “we lost her” because we know where she is…in heaven with her Savior, Jesus.

The day before… Continue reading A Year Without Sheri – (aka: A #fiveOverFiftyFOREVER update) – June 18, 2020

We are almost three weeks in to working from home and I still don’t know what is happening.  I’m asked often, as I’m sure you are, “How are you doing?”, and some moments I know what my answer is…and sometimes I have no idea how to form the words.  This is CRAZY, right? #Covid19 On… Continue reading #UseWhatYouHave #iHadOldCardsAndStamps

It’s taken me several days to post this, but after sharing it with Tom and asking him if I should, he encouraged me to. My desire would be to be authentic (with whoever takes the time to read this post) about where I am and hopefully where I’m headed…as well as to encourage anyone else… Continue reading #ItsBeenAYear – A Really, Really, Rough Year. #TrustingHimToMakeBeautyFromAshes #Goodbye2019

#backToSchool – “Mrs. Hans”

Often the “Memories” that facebook kindly reminds you of can be really bittersweet.  Some pictures take you back to the exact moment you took it… I remember this like it was 2 minutes ago and it makes my tummy hurt a little just thinking about it. This was the original post that went with the picture: In our… Continue reading #backToSchool – “Mrs. Hans”
