Musings on Father’s Day: It was only eight and a half years…

June 19, 2021

It sounds like a long time but it really wasn’t. It was actually a very short period of time. My perspective of time changed with this number. I was close to my 9th birthday when my dad passed.

On Father’s Day, I reminisce of how…

I saw you, Mom

Let’s Play More: The Benefits Of Free Play

August 26, 2018

Mommy can I play with you?  It was a long day at work and I was exhausted.  Yet those big brown eyes looked at me with excitement.  She had a frisbee on her hands and wanted me to throw it at her.  I knew it was time to be present and in the moment.  It was time to lay all chores aside and play with my daughter.  I sometimes find it hard to disconnect from worries and duties.  However, I…
