Don’t be afraid to change your goals.

My summer goals on writing each week have not been successful. My mother's husband had surgery and he is my mother's caretaker. She is in the last and final stage of Alzheimer's. This is perhaps the worst stage yet. It could last months or it could last years. With my stepfather's recovery, my sisters and... Continue Reading →

Summer Goals

A Good Reading Day

Today seems like the perfect reading day. I love a day where it is a little chilly out. Then I curl up on the couch and read a book (even if it is just during my son's naptime). So if you have just an hour like sometimes I do, go read one of my books.... Continue Reading →
