Going Through the Valley in Times of Waiting

The gray skies matched my gray mood. I wrapped my sweater closer around my body attempting to keep the cold damp November wind at bay. The kids clothes were packed ready to go to their Dad’s after Thanksgiving lunch with my family. I felt grateful they would be with me for at least part of […]

Learning About Friendship in Times of Waiting.

We all experience good days as well as bad. This day definitely qualified for the good category. One thing I had come to realize since being on my own was how isolated I had become from healthy friendships – especially friendships with women.

Honesty in Times of Waiting

I pulled into the drive-through and placed my order. These trips into Houston took something out of me, but I knew how important they were. We had been attending marriage counseling once a week for six weeks since our separation. Some sessions went better than others, but the process had become increasingly frustrating.

Hidden Treasures in Times of Waiting

Homework was done, dishes were washed and put away, and we were enjoying an evening of relaxation watching our favorite television shows. Glancing around the room at my children stretched out in their favorite spots, soothing feelings of peace and contentment filled my world.

Abundant Joy in Times of Waiting

The room was small and filled with only a couple of filing cabinets and a desk. I signed my name on the check with a mixture of nervousness and excitement. The woman sitting across the desk from me looked to be in her mid fifties. She seemed pleasant enough, but the routine manner in which she […]
