Graduations, Grief, and Gratefulness

Alex had his preschool graduation today. I swear, Natalie just had hers but in reality that was 6 years ago.

Release from Resistance

The strands of what has unraveled still twist around, waiting to be woven back in. Let’s pick them up again. This is where I am and then – the resistance.
