I was very shocked to hear about the death of Robin Williams. I understand his depression. I’ve been there and have the t-shirt. The thought of suicide did cross my mind during a deep depression some years ago. I just got the realization that I would be leaving my kids without their mother. I couldn’t. See, my mother died when I was 17. She and I were getting to that friend stage. I still realized that I really needed my mother around. I would have her back now if it were possible. I didn’t want my children to go through what I did and still do.

I’m still here and so happy that I made that choice. Not everyone comes through like I did. Only by the grace of God did I come through.

Keep remembering Robin’s family & friends during this sad time.


Just Checking In

I know of a number of people who need prayers. They have gone through terrible losses or are battling cancer or some other life threatening disease. God know them and their needs. Could you please lift these folks up in prayer? I appreciate it and I know these folks would too!

Random thoughts:
– Our oldest is moving out today. She’ll be 1.5 hours away. I’m more sad than happy right now. I’m proud of her and I know that this is the “circle of life”. She’s a very responsible adult. I just have sadness right now. I think I’ll be okay one the move is complete. Mama’s got to have a brave face,
– I’ve been back running about 2 weeks now. I figured out that I was running to tight. I’ve loosened up my running and am speeding up! Today I ran 3 miles in almost 38 mins. I’m not hurting either. That’s a blessing!

Go out and have a great day! Smile and tell someone hello today!
