Transitions

We all move through various transitions as we move through life. As we grow up, the more obvious ones are from childhood to adolescence and then on to adulthood. We transition through periods of ease to those of stress along the way. We transition…

I haven’t talked to my Mom in 2 years

It’s 2 years today that my mom passed away. It seems crazy to me and often what comes to mind is that I haven’t talked to he in so long. Sometimes that’s a really lonely feeling because she’s the only person I would talk…

What’s on your to-do list?
