I wish I’d reached out

This past weekend, my husband received a phone call that his college roommate died. He died in his sleep (circumstances undetermined yet) but he was just 54 years old. He left his wife and his 14-year-old autistic son. As I listened to my husband express how he felt, we both remembered that ‘Ron’ was the type… [Read More]

How Shame Leads Us To Love

Recently, I experienced one of those moments you just don’t forget. I did something I thought was best, someone else got upset about it, and nothing played out as I’d intended. I felt really badly.
