A Question of… Fate? Yes, I think it is.


You know that saying, that when God closes a door he opens a window, well, sometimes out of nowhere he’ll do you one better and he’ll kick a whole wall down.  ~Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, Glee Ok, so maybe it’s a little cheesy (I actually like Glee, but KSP subscribes to Dave Grohl’s position on the show), but I can’t help it because this is exactly how I feel about today.  Today is April 6, a big day for us as it is the adjusted birthday of the babies, they are officially 15 months and this time … Continue reading A Question of… Fate?

A Playlist for Faith, Love, and Being Just as You Are…

Excuse me mam, you have Desitin on your face…


This was during week one of my blogging and I don’t know that I would change it much as it is really the only humor and levity in the early part of my blogging journey.  It has been very fun to revisit these early days, not only because it gives me a chuckle to see how things have changed but also because it makes me realize just how far we have come as a family.  Thank you for allowing us to go on this journey! “The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused.” … Continue reading Excuse me mam, you have Desitin on your face…
