What Have We Become?

Let me tell you a little story.  Once upon a time, my daughter was ill and required a stay in the hospital for treatment.  She had gone through surgeries and hospital stays before,  so it wasn’t exactly a new thing.  But this particular treatment, while necessary, was something she was adamantly against.  When I hadContinue reading “What Have We Become?”

Breaking the Cycle

Well, here we are.  In the wake of yet another school shooting.  The drama has commenced.  The outrage, the finger pointing,  the “it’s the guns” people, and “it’s not the guns” people, arguing until they’re blue in the face, with neither side budging.  It’s the thoughts and prayers, it’s the “now’s not the time toContinue reading “Breaking the Cycle”

Total Eclipse of the Heart

In case you have been living under a rock, there is a total solar eclipse happening tomorrow.  The moon hasn’t thrown this much shade at America in nearly a century.  (See what I did there?)  My inner nerd is ecstatic!  It’s expected to be the most observed eclipse ever.  Not surprising, as our culture isContinue reading “Total Eclipse of the Heart”

Fall is in the air! Ha, ha, just kidding.  Of course it’s not.  It’s freaking 105 degrees outside today in Fort Worth.  Fall is the last thing on the mind of the Texas weather gods. But…I’m already craving it. I’m ready for football, and pumpkin flavored everything, and of course, Halloween.  I love Halloween.  ItContinue reading “Is It October Yet?”

Stuff my drama tween says

Over the years my adorable and witty daughter has said some pretty hilarious things.  I started writing them down mostly just for my own amusement and to reflect on her cuteness.  It really is true, kids say the darndest things!  So I thought I would share some of my favorite Abby musings and maybe youContinue reading “Stuff my drama tween says”

Dear Greg Glassman: What my dead homies would like you to know…

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have Type 1 Diabetes, and am very passionate about bringing awareness to and helping find a cure for this disease.  Of the many daily struggles someone with T1D faces, blame and misinformation are some of the biggest ones.  And actually, that goes for any diabetic, no matterContinue reading “Dear Greg Glassman: What my dead homies would like you to know…”

What defines courage?

I will be sharing 2 blog posts this week.  One will be serious.  Since I have already opened the controversial can of worms with my last TWO posts, apparently, I thought I might as well go for a 3rd.  My 2nd post this week will be purely comic relief.  So stay tuned! Since the appearanceContinue reading “What defines courage?”
