Five months later, I get to tell the surgeon goodbye! I have so looked forward to this day. There were times when it felt like it would never happen. I think lots of difficult seasons in our lives feel that way. My mother's old adage, "This,... Read more

I've had computer issues all evening and couldn't even reboot for a long while. Now, all of a sudden, the program that reads my files for work tells me my files are corrupt. This makes no sense whatsoever. It was working one minute and the ne... Read more
