Words to Live and Write by

I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.

I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.

I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

First Beach Trip

We made it to the beach and back yesterday (nothing short of amazing when you consider we had no antifreeze). 

The sun was out, the sand was warm, and the water cold. At first, Lana didn't like the feel of the sand or the waves, but by the time we left, she kept turning around to run back into the water.


I even got Anthony to admit the coast was indeed different than "just a big lake." Mission accomplished!
