Finding grace…

jackhammer

Sometimes life hammers with a jackhammer. Sometimes it shifts the concrete and the foundation that you know.

Sometimes just sometimes you need to stop. To adjust the lenses. To take a breath.

Today our family is in need of hope…and prayers…and thoughts…and strength…and peace

…and grace.

I’ll be back…sometime…maybe soon.

but for now, most importantly, I need to focus on family.

Thank you...so so much.
