My Newest Guardian Angel

My Dad called today, and as soon as I heard his voice I knew that my grandmother Mimi had died. I had asked about her not even a week before, and he’d told me that even though her mind was slipping further and further from reality, her body was still very healthy. But she’d been […]


Jack (age 7) asked me this morning what Easter was all about, so I explained about the crucifixion of Jesus, the tomb, the stone, and how when they rolled back the stone three days later Jesus was gone. That he’d come back to life. I also told him, “I have no idea what bunnies, eggs, and […]
