Moment of Truth Monday

Divorce has the illusion of being an easy solution for struggling relationships. It appears to be as simple as changing out the curtains in the living room when chevron is no longer trending.

Moment of Truth Monday

Several years ago, we were evacuated from our home. In the thick of a significant drought, with grass resembling hay and crunching under foot like a fall leaf, our area was desperate for rain. Many grass fires had already been extinguished, so when I saw the smoke rising I immediately knew. It started with just…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
