Quiet.

If every season of life has a word, I think the word for this season of my life is QUIET.

Where I’ve Been. Where I Am. Where I’m Going.

My Terrible, Awful, No Good, Very Bad Day…and What I Learned From It

Yesterday was a terrible, awful, no good, very bad day.

First, I went to go renew my driver’s license, only to encounter a snafu with some paperwork that left me standing in line trying to sort out my life for more than five hours.

After basically wasting the entire day, I got home and collapsed on the couch for a brief rest. And things started to look up. Briefly. That is, until I went to leave my » Read More
