Tuesday, October 16, 2012. Our one day in Haiti, the day that changed me forever. (Read full post here.) It had been a long day. I was not there to sunbathe. I recognized the need, and I knew it with all my heart. God led us down a path that culminated in me scratching names…

Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to a sweet girl I see for speech-language therapy. Although I’m unable to show her face or reveal her name because of privacy laws, something that occurred during our therapy session yesterday holds a bit of truth for us all. I’m so grateful her mom has given…

    Amy, what a Beautiful Post! Clearly you are sharing your “gift” with all of us. Your gift of kindnes… in words and thoughts. Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Thank you very much Jennifer. And I am beyond glad to see you are also using your gifts in your new business…so exciting!!!ReplyCancel

You are a special mama. I hear you. I see you. I understand you. I am with you. That look, I recognize it. I see it. The way you look at your child. Your quiet, wondering eyes tell all. The way pain has settled in. What does this child’s future hold? Will everything be ok?…

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Meet Me At This Moment for Five Minute Friday post! I spend the last hour of Thursday chatting it up with a group of authentic and inspiring Five Minute Friday bloggers on Twitter (#FiveMinuteFriday #fmfparty). One minute past midnight EST Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker gives us a single word prompt and we all…

    The verse you shared brought me to tears, such an easy thing to do these days…I wrestle with my own “wonderings” and feel so inadequate to even take a step into figuring out the WHAT and WHY’s of those inner most secret places and hoping it’s not so filled with dark that I can’t find Jesus there. I want to be still and to know… always, but my mind and heart are restless. Thank you for bearing a part of yourself and allowing others to see you.ReplyCancel

    Thank you for this… just thank you. My heart has been so full of all of those questions… I am walking a narrow path as God is trying to show me that I can only rely on Him… I love that I am not the only wondering about the being still… Prayers for you friend… prayers on this journey.ReplyCancel

      Hi Tonya. I am so grateful for your response this morning. To be honest, I wrote this last night at the prompt, but didn’t feel quite right about it. I woke up this morning to start over with a new post, but then read this one over again and felt I needed to post it. If only for you, then I am glad I decided to post it. What I have gained from others’ blogs is a knowledge I am not alone in my thoughts…I am so happy this post brings you some contentment knowing you are not alone. Many blessings to you on the narrow path, Tonya. 🙂ReplyCancel

Today I am pleased to introduce you to Heidi, warm and welcoming, a bright light at just the right time. As I walked through the exhibit hall that second afternoon of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) convention, I was admittedly uninspired. Maybe my intense continuing education schedule paired with the Georgia inspired box lunch of…

    Hi Heidi,

    We love the website you have for teaching speech and all the resources there. We noticed the apps are currently just for apple. Is there a chance that they might become available for the Kindle (or Android)?

    Thanks again for all of the great resources.ReplyCancel
