Emotional hangover, part 2

Last week I wrote about feeling an emotional hangover from a major recognition and restructuring of my own reality.

The truth is that a week later, I’m still there.  I’m emotionally exhausted and still working things through in my mind and heart.  This isn’t an easy place for me to be in.

A dysfunctional family miracle

Tonight a friend mentioned my post from earlier this week about my grandfather.

The beauty of watching a mind shift

Usually I title these posts using the word “miracle.”  I don’t mean to imply that this one isn’t a miracle in my world.  However, I watched something happen in someone else’s world this evening and I can’t assume that it was a miracle for her.  It was, however, an incredibly beautiful thing for me to …
