Being One Call Away

I heard this song a few weeks ago while driving in the car with Lucy. I started laughing and told her that this song was about her!

Light the Way

I have been invited to share my testimony with a local Celebrate Recovery group and I am honored yet, a little fearful.

Being Real

Several months ago I created a post with extremely foul language, filled with anger and hatred. A couple of months later, I took that post down because I didn't want to offend anyone and I also did not want people to think I was just some trashy, foul-mouthed lunatic, if that were the only post...
