On April 17, 2010, Posted by , In Calvin Phoenix,Faith,Rainbow Baby,Walking With You, By , With 2 Comments

Unfortunately, our busyness does not rid us of our grief… I agree with that. It can provide a temporary distraction, yes, and give us something else to focus on, but I’ve found that being “busy” just to be busy, that being wrapped up in work or projects, are not as…

The 5th Belongs to Calvin: Blessed to Be Broken

From Our Family to Yours I don’t want to be a Scrooge-y Mommy I’ve been meaning to post that greeting on my blog, since I don’t have all of your email addresses, and some of you I know only through BBC (no, not the British channel), and/or blogland. So first,…
