Fatherhood

I can honestly say that as a little girl, my daddy was my hero. He was strong; he could throw me high in the air and catch me every time as I came down. He was solicitous and creative; he made doll houses, sandboxes, swings and even a play castle complete with turrets you could actually climb...

Getting To The Heart of the Matter

Resurrection Moments

My grandmother, whom I affectionately called 'Meme' was filled with love. I grew especially close to her since for the last twenty years of her life she suffered from near-blindness.
