Wow, has it really been that long since I did a blog? Yikes! I've been so darned busy! First Beth was sick (Flu, not her digestive issue), then I was sick, then I went on a last-minute trip to DC, then I came home and David got the flu. ... Read more

Aargh! Lost Blog! Topic: Self-forgiveness

Wednesday, September 09, 2009      11 comments

I just wrote a long and thought-provoking blog describing my weekend and ending with a discussion on self-forgiveness. And then I lost it. I copied it before posting so that if anything happened to it I'd still have it, but somehow the copy di... Read more
