The Thin Blue Wife


Enough is enough. We are not going to have our liberties stolen from us. We are not going to be told what to do by people who do not follow these same rules themselves. We are not cancelling Thanksgiving. We are not cancelling Christmas. We are not allowing anyone to tell us who and howContinue reading “Enough”


Patience is a virtue. I know personally that I struggle daily with this virtue. It is hard to wait. So very hard. We taught our children at a very young age that it was important to learn to wait, especially for those things that are important. We intentionally took them to restaurants to show themContinue reading “Light”


Today it is simple. It is a brief yet summarizing narrative. Here is what I have to say: I believe: Life begins at conception. We live in the greatest country in the world. Science IS real, but so is GOD. Prayer changes hearts. Freedom is not free. Good always trumps Evil. No exceptions. God hasContinue reading “Simple”


We are starting to find our purpose over here. It has been 8 weeks since he has donned his uniform and driven his beat. It has been a slow peeling back of the layers. Some good. Some not so good. The final i’s were dotted and t’s crossed this last week. No going back now.Continue reading “Unafraid”

Today is not just a day off, it is a day to wave those flags, cover those hearts, remove those hatsContinue reading “Labor”

Who gets to decideContinue reading “New Normal”


There has been a calm in the air lately. I have felt it and I must say it is welcome. I do not necessarily trust it, but I will take what I can get these days. I have had some difficult conversations and decisions that I have made over the last couple of weeks. ItContinue reading “Calm”
