Too Much Coffee, not Enough Peanut Butter
Too Much Coffee, not Enough Peanut Butter

I wanted to run today. Or should I say walk? Because let me be real, there are literally 1,000 hills in Rwanda and so a run inevitably for me, at some point, ends in a walk. If I'm lucky, it will end in a sort of run-walk-run kind of a thing, but that is now besides...

New Life & Dry Bones

The Genocide memorial in our neighborhood.   It was almost all I could think about when we moved here. The Genocide Against the Tutsi. Everywhere I went it seemed dark brown eyes stared back at me from hollow looking faces as I passed them on the street. Eyes that...

A girl with No legs

This is Esther. She is 8 years old and has no legs. I met her several weeks ago in the courtyard of her very humble home, shared by two other homes.  I have hesitated sharing this picture because I don't know what to do with it, or her. And maybe by sharing this photo...

When Life Gets Full, Go Empty
When Life Gets Full, Go Empty

Ladies, it’s November, and if it hasn’t already life is about to get busy. Full. As full as my Thanksgiving dinner plate. Like eyes-bigger-than-my-stomach-how-did-I-ever-think-I-could-eat all-these-mashed-potatoes kind of full. I know what it’s like to have my plate...

Numbering Our Days

Hello there. It's been a few weeks since I last wrote here and I am feeling better. Stronger. More adjusted. And boy oh boy, is it a good feeling. I've been able to loosen my death grip on the steering wheel, and the other night we had chili and rolls for dinner and...

Surviving snow in San Antonio

I thought I would have a lot of time on the road to write about our trip. I’m not sure what I was thinking.  My HANDS ARE FULL you guys. Jokes aside. In all kinds of different ways than they were before. And I feel the same way I did when my kids were all six and...

Casitas and Canyons

Guess what? I am writing to you from a couch. That's right, a couch. In a living room. It is 9:30 p.m. and there is no sleeping husband by my elbow and my kids are not within 20 feet of me. Can we have a moment of silence? Thank you Lord for your good gifts!! That's...

Life is a Tuesday
Life is a Tuesday

It's a windy Tuesday and we are all in the RV. It's pretty cozy, (all those throw pillows are helping. 🙂 I knew there was a reason to bring them). Okay, and screens. Screens are helping too. Everybody is on a screen right now! (Insert a nervous smile, because we are...

Week One

Hellooo out there! It's been a while. I can't believe I wrote absolutely nothing on here about our lovely time in a duplex in Tahoe this fall! It honestly makes me sad because it was a gift of a season our family will always cherish. Now, however, as of January 1,...
