Wanted: 1 human allotment of joy, gone missing about 10 months ago, deeply missed.  Glimpsed briefly on occasion but darted away again.  If seen, grab it and hold on tightly. 

Joy.  What does it mean?  How do we find it and better question, how to we hang on to it?  A couple of months back, some of my family and I were on a shuttle bus, being transported like cattle from one end to the other of a resort along with a couple of other families.  Most of the riders were lost in their own…

I am struggling with the loss of my step-dad unexpectedly and them my Grandma passed away unexpectedly. I was closer to my step-dad as my mother and him moved across town from us. I feel like being in the medical field I let him down.



I would do lunch and spend time with my grandma as often as I could. I called her on February 11th and made plans for lunch on February 20th. She was happy and said she had been feeling well. Within 4 hours my uncle called and my grandma was gone. How… Continue
