Mama, It’s Enough

Last Wednesday night was one of those nights. You know the feeling: too much to do, a missed deadline, mistakes, exhaustion, and a list of worries big and small.

Passionate, Powerful and…Petty

I think most of us can agree that marriage brings out qualities that we truly never realized were buried so deeply. Personally, marriage has caused some of my best characteristics to surface: empathy, compassion, humility, and…pettiness.  I’d like to think we’ve all “been there” at some point. Maybe it’s 3am, and–although you’re exhausted–you get up […]
