Lettrs: Hoorah

Gretchen is like so many others, above and beyond what's asked of her, selflessly giving, dedicated worker, loyal to work and family. She managed, though, to trip into some sticky situations with a monster of a spouse, and a greedy employer. We've been in situations that have been sticky, haven't we? Our choices have gotten… Continue reading Lettrs: Hoorah

Ben is in the back. He's extraverted, maybe because he wasn't traumatized shortly after arriving here 🤔🤦🏼‍♀️. Jerry is chilling towards the back of the tub. They're so little, I thought some time in a big opened space, warmer water and overhead light would do them some good. I'm definitely going to have to pick… Continue reading Little Explorers 🐢🐢

Because humans decide to be selfish and speak/act in such a way that suits his/her needs. Now, read that correctly. I said humans.. not "all" humans.SO HERE's the catch: Some humans mistreat… Continue reading The Circle Ends

Plants bloom and wilt. Babies are born, and people die. Structures go up, and buildings are torn down. The cycles in life seem to be continuous. In some instances, unfortunately, the cycle stops.

In This Moment

On July 16th, I turned 33 years young. I've made it to see this year, by God's grace 🙂 I wasn't a tyrant or anything; life has just been unmercifully challenging.
