National Nurse Appreciation Week 2022

Once upon a time, I had big dreams of becoming a writer.

Three Sisters and a Baby

The bond between sisters is unlike anything else. They play together. They fight. They “borrow” each other’s clothes and hairbrushes. It is like living with your best friend and your least favorite mean girl simultaneously. If we do not have a sister, we want one, so we find a best friend and call her our sister. Books and movies like Little Women and My Sister’s Keeper are written and brought to the big screen to explore this one-of-a-kind bond. It is a complex and fascinating friendship—one in which there is indeed struggle, but also the knowledge that you never have to stand alone.

It is even more surprising when we hear of someone coming simply to visit or explore. However, there are a growing number of successful vacation rentals right here in our backyard!

The Beauty of an Unexpected Life

Dealing daily with the unexpected, never knowing or understanding when, what or where this mystery began, hoping for God’s grace to carry you from day to day and that society will learn to understand what may not be understood… This is the reality for my family as we live with autism. … In 2014, after failed attempts and much prayer, my husband and I were blessed with a son, Caleb.
