A Message From Heaven

Yesterday I made my what seems to be monthly trip to church.  Since I usually get about three hours of sleep a night, Sunday mornings are usually when I try to catch up on rest and take it easy during the afternoon watching football.  It was Men’s Day, and after I heard that Jeremiah Wright […]

Count Your Blessings

  < No one feels reassured by the phrase "It could be worse."  It doesn't help people put their problems into perspective and feel better.  If anything, it reminds people that they are going through adverse circumstances and they dwell on them a little more by comparing it to what others are going through.  When […]

The Decision

After all that had gone on in the last couple of weeks after Cydney was born, we were still figuring out our options on whether or not we were going to stay in New York or move to Buffalo for TImile to do her treatments in one of the two places.  Virginia was out of […]

An Update On My Mom

Thank everyone for their prayers, well wishes, phone calls, and various ways of showing support. My mother is as okay as she can be given the circumstances. I went to go see her the day after her surgery. She was out of it a little (and rightfully so) but was still making little jokes here […]
