My Will Be Done.

My Will Be Done.

Photo by Simon Maage on Unsplash I want. My wanting isn’t just for material things. My want is bigger. I want security, comfort, and the assurance of knowing I’m taken care of. Sometimes that comes in the form of material possessions like a house, a solid bank account, and 401K (I’m in my 30s and […]

Paper Towel.

Paper Towel.

Photo by Simon Maage on Unsplash My son is thankful for paper towels. It’s Thanksgiving. A few friends and family members are over for a small Thanksgiving dinner. As we gather around the table, we ask the question, What are you thankful for? People share and we arrive at my three-year old son for his […]

When Right Feels Wrong.

When Right Feels Wrong.

Photo by Ferdinand Stöhr on Unsplash An oil change can just never be an oil change. As our family vehicle approaches 90,000 miles I know that every 7,000 mile visit to the mechanic means I am going to get a list of what we need to fix to keep the car in good shape. Since […]

Happy. (3)

I’ve realized there is just no point in being happy. The moment we are “happy” is only a fleeting moment, and really, isn’t the fall that much harder after you’ve been up? Why bother to experience the highest of highs when in the end you are only going to crash in a mess on the […]

Photo by Craig Philbrick on Unsplash When I was young I had an imaginary friend. Now, before I go further, you must promise not to make fun of me, my imaginary friend, or her name. And yes, I had a female imaginary friend. Her name was Girl. Yes, me and Girl were best friends, but […]

Committed.

Committed.

The meeting was rescheduled. Again. Countless e-mails sent. Numerous texts exchanged. Apologies offered and forgiveness given. But the project wasn’t going to move forward until we had this meeting – if we ever had it. Have you ever been on the broken end of a person that couldn’t honor a commitment? At the most minor, […]
