So people think that I have a lot of connections; I don’t really.  But, I am related to someone who does.  I could tell you story upon story of being somewhere random and running into someone who knows my mom and/or dad.  It truly is amazing at the number of people who my folks have […]

Billy Graham

Well Dr Graham went home to heaven yesterday and everyone seems to be sharing their memories and stories of this amazing evangelist, known as America’s Pastor.  I too have stories!

Dear Kelsey, These past four years have been good, but way too fast. I wish I had more time to compose my thoughts, but as I realize I have had time, it still would never be easier! I hate this part of my “job”! There really is no easy way to say goodbye to you. […]

So last week Sarah Noelle, my sister’s daughter, went on a vacation to Europe where her long time boyfriend romantically proposed in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower. It hardly seems possible that she is old enough to get married; it seems like only yesterday she was playing with American Girl dolls and having […]

Liam Elwood and I started a little game and it has grown.  It is the typical word exchange as he leaves my office and heads to the preschool.  Now Olivia is verbal enough to join in.  We have come up with several different rhymes to say hello and goodbye. Super fun! Oh hi, firefly!//What’s the […]
