October is winding down. I can’t believe we are in the last week of this month. It seems as if the older I get the faster time seems to go. Wasn’t it January yesterday? This year is flying by and what a year it’s been. Ten months of crazy if you ask me. https://www.cornerstoneccs.com/blog/2020/02/03/coping-with-change For…… Continue reading Change, Life’s Only Constant

Courage is… Feeling every emotion, especially the ones you’d rather stuff way down inside and avoid. Courage is… Continuing to love in-spite of being hurt. Courage is… Facing…… Continue reading Courage is…

Most of the time, words fall from my brain to the keyboard without much hesitation. This time is different. This time, the words are…… Continue reading Grief is Not a To-Do List
