About Me

Thank you for visiting my site.

Ever since 2014, when my step-sister Claudia passed on after fighting a serious infection following childbirth, this blog has been place for me to reflect with awe and gratitude on everyday life.

My observations aren’t necessarily unique – but when we discover (or rediscover) timeless and simple truths, we’re inspired to move a bit more toward the people we’re called to be.

I believe grace – unmerited favor reaching down to us – surrounds us like the dewfall shrouds a field in the morning. It covers all the nooks and crannies of our lives like a shimmering veil. And as we see it, we come to know it and sense it more deeply.

Grace works on us.

Everyone is welcome here. The things that connect us – compassion, generosity, decency, goodness, a desire for peace and the like – are what interest me the most.

My vocation (when I’m not writing…so that’s most of the time) is to try to be a loving wife to my husband of 20+ years, a good mom to my three kids and two dogs, and a friend who shows up and listens more than she talks. Some days I think I deserve an A or an A-, and others, a C or lower.

My subscriber list is always open and I’d love for you to join me on my journey of observation. I promise I’ll never share your address with any third party.

Thanks again for stopping by. May peace be with you today.

Gretchen
