Buki: Slipping on a Slice of Heaven

Children Need Love … Not Borders

It’s been awhile since I’ve opened my heart to write a Capturing Grace post. It’s also been a while that it’s been such a deep, internal struggle to allow the words to flow.

Fierce & Bold! By Order of the Chicy Blinders!

How many of you have, at some point in your life, been asked about your age? And how many of you have had the cliched reaction of “I’ll never tell.” Last question … How many of you have wanted to pull a Clark Gable and say, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!” We … Continue Reading
