Learning lessons, breaking free from our prisons

Hi friends, family and followers:

This morning I wrote over at ChicagoNow Bittersweet.com about lessons to be learned from our “prisons.”

In life we will all find ourselves in prisons of all kinds -physical, emotional, mental, relational.

I believe there are lessons to be learned and reasons we are all dealing with all that we deal with.

I heard a message this weekend that helps make a little sense of it all.

Time passages

Hi family, friends and followers:

Please click on link below and visit me over at Bittersweet on ChicagoNow. I shared a post on a few things rambling through my head today about love, loss and time. I know it sounds sad and depressing, but I don’t mean it to.

I just want answers and I have these thoughts, and I want to hear your thoughts as well…I think we all need to stop and think about these things sometimes. After all, life is Bittersweet! We are all in this together!!

Small Midwest town, young boy, decade old mystery – no body

Well I spent a wonderful weekend with my girls thanks to my wonderful husband! Abby is doing great and I thank you all for your prayers.

We seem to be slowly returning back to normal…Abby’s next doctor’s appointment is April 3. Will update.

Back to work for me this week, while Tony stays home to keep an eye on the girls.  I am looking forward to covering this murder trial, for a second time. The justice system is fascinating and this story is something I’d watch on Investigative Discovery. People in these two families and this small rural Midwest town are still hanging on to see it all conclude.

After more than 10 years, a trial that ended in a mistrial with a hung jury, dozens of rumors, a perjury trial, the death of the missing boy’s mother and the lead investigator, this story continues.  People fight for justice. But even more so I see how being young and impulsive and being in the wrong place at the wrong time can destroy lives and a community, and magnify its love. I’d love to hear your feedback on this story. If interested I will continue to post updates from court for the next two weeks.

My pre-trial story below.


Until next time, love each other.

Simple securities now gone ….

Hi dear friends, family and followers, please visit Bittersweet over at ChicagoNow and share a short little ditty I wrote expressing feelings of loss and regret in light of our daughter’s recent health issue. As always, your thoughts and insight mean so much to me and I’d love anything you’d like to share.

Until next time……
