Infected

As the flu season has ravaged its way across the United States, I’ve noticed a pattern.  People become “infected” with the flu, and it starts small–maybe a headache or sniffly nose.  Gradually it becomes worse, but they continue on with their normal routines until all at once, they are completely taken down by the flu […]

Thank You: A Letter to My Mentor

I learned so much from you in so little time, and I don’t know that you were even actively teaching.  You were living your faith and any teaching of it was a bonus.  I caught it instead of being taught it.  That’s the kind of life I aspire to live: one so full of faith […]

To The Boy That Loved Me Since He First Laid Eyes on Me

*The following post is the first in an upcoming series of posts about letting people go out of your life.  I’ve noticed that sometimes people are in your life just for a season, and you have to let them go gracefully or feel rejected.  I am in the process of learning how to let go, and […]
