I never thought I would decide to send my oldest daughter to T-K. I found myself in a predicament last November and decided to look into the schools around to see if there were any openings for her to start. Between the appointments and therapies, I wasn't finding the time I wanted to pour into [...]

{always late}

I hate being late. The truth is, I have always struggled with the thought of being late to anything. From a very early age, my man-pleasing side of me kicked in strong and the mere thought of letting someone down by being late killed me. I sang in the school choir from 4th grade until [...]

{growth in the rain}

The house we live in has a beautiful backyard. Green blades of grass grow out of the earth filling most of the yard. Other plants line green perimeter. A brown fence encloses it, a shed houses some odds and ends. There is a patio where a picnic table made out of redwood sits, waiting for [...]
