A Letter To My Former Best Friend

     As we add years to our lives, inevitably, things change: seasons continue to come and go, trees grow taller, children grow bigger, people pass on, technology improves, relationships begin, and sadly, relationships end. Sometimes things are said in haste, sometimes mistakes are made, other times people, for no reason, simply just drift apart… …this is a letter to my former best friend:   Two years.

Two years since silent understanding....

Perfect Imperfections

     From the second you lay eyes upon your brand new baby, it’s love at first sight. You count their 10 little fingers and their 10 little toes. You check to see whose eye color they inherited. You check to see if baby is bald or has hair and you snuggle that sweet, little bundle of pure perfection because God blessed you with such a beautiful gift…      …however, there are some things you might not be aware of at that exact moment. Does this child have a food allergy? Will this child have a learning disability?...
