Hold My Hand…

Sometimes we just need to squeeze a hand that loves us. During labor I watched as my daughter fiercely squeezed her husband’s hand. When I got close to her face once she grasped my hand with all her might as well. And when her…

Running Away…

There’s an unrest in my soul these days. Haven’t pinpointed it yet – but experience tells me it’s preparation. A feeling – things don’t stay the same, no matter how much I hate change. I know because more than once a day I want…
