He was not referring to an electrical switch. He'd been obsessively refreshing the USA Today site for the week's listing of bestsellers. My four... Read more of this blog post »

“She'd not known grief would come in waves, brought on by the smallest of things. Nor had she realized that ordinary acts of living would continue even after the loss of a love and that it would remain possible to get caught up in the moment of a simple pleasure before remembering.”
Tess Hardwick
tags: grief

“She didn't belong here, amidst all the laughter, abandonment, the war cries of freedom. These other kids were alive and vibrant. She was chained and invisible.”
Tess Hardwick, Riversong

“life isn't understandable. Only God understands and we have to wait until the end, where I imagine I'll see my questions answered, spread out across the heavens in waves of clarity.”
Tess Thompson, The River Valley Collection
