The Close of Another Summer…

The Close of Another Summer…

Grace came downstairs a few mornings ago and  began sharing with me a dream she had about Warren.  As dreams go, the details didn't all fit together and some of it was random...However, one detail about her dream that made me smile was the first question she said she asked Warren when she saw him..."

If I’m Honest…

If I'm honest...I am relieved the "Holidays" are coming to a close.  I don't hate Thanksgiving or Christmas, the festivities, and all that goes with them...In fact, being with friends and family is something I love very much..but I just struggle more during this time of year without Warren.
