Trust…

That is a word that I have heard and used many times.  All through Gavin’s life it was a major theme with Karen and I.  We were trusting in God and His plan even though we had no idea where it was going to lead us.  So you think by this time in my life […]

2 years…

There isn’t much that I can say about Gavin that I haven’t talked about before.  I could sit and just talk about him forever if someone would give me the time.  But today on this day I just want to see him the only way I know I can see him.  I just want to […]

Remembering…

  “…sometimes sadness is beautiful…” That was a quote that I heard this past Sunday at the Remembrance Service at duPont.  I think if I would have heard that quote years ago I would have disagreed.  But reflecting over the past 5 years I would have to agree with that.

I originally thought I was going because Madison has a moderate to sever peanut allergy and the rules for our district is a parent […]

Good Music…

I posted earlier this week on twitter I downloaded Andy Grammers new CD that came out this month, and it truly is one of the best new artists I have heard in a long time.  I highly recommend that you check out his stuff, and if you like it then it’s only 7.99 on iTunes […]

Different Kind of Father’s Day…

(This was originally a guest post I wrote over at my buddy Brandon’s blog this week but I wanted to post here too on Fathers Day.   Hope all you dad’s have a great day!!) When Brandon ask me if I would be willing to write a post about what Father’s Day means to me […]

June 14, 2006…

The phone rings.  I wake up from my deep slumber to answer my phone.  I said..“hey…whats going on“, and on the other end of the phone I hear Karen say “I’ve been having contractions for an hour and the Dr’s can’t stop them this time…. It’s really happening you need to get down here as […]
