Pink Elephant

Pink elephants… I have been thinking about pink elephants.  Do you think about pink elephants? Their trunks are cute, and their feet are huge.  Sometimes, they have beady eyes and big eyelashes. Oh! You don’t think about pink elephants.  I probably wouldn’t either if there wasn’t a challenge not to think about pink elephants.  You […]

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Or maybe not.  I am not the the first to blog about the difficulty of the holiday season.  Some people are saddened about who or what they have lost or what they never even had.  It is easy to think that everyone is having more fun than you especially if you compare social media post. […]

Remembering by Kendra

It is amazing how emotions can spring out of control.  Recently, I learn that an acquaintance experienced a miscarriage.
