Glimmers of Hope

This is one of those posts that I started and never finished. I am publishing today because I finally nailed down Mac and Leelee so that they can tell their stories. As always, it is better in their own words, so I’m going to leave it at that. ************************************************************************************ Leelee had a meltdown about Daddy. … Continue reading

Crisis of Faith

I wrote this on Facebook on June 1, 2016. I’ve been thinking a lot about faith lately. There are 2 “stories” out there that have made me really question: How strong IS my faith? One came from something that was in the news 10 years ago this April. You may or may not remember, but … Continue reading

Calendars

Per our calendar, our year ended 10 days ago. Per our calendar, we begin a new year. We get a brand new start. My mama moved her office last week, and she gets a new start. That is a good thing. She deserves one.   It used to be my parents’ office. I can’t really … Continue reading

Better Things

In the car tonight, taking Mac Stacey to basketball practice, out of the blue, he said, “Mama, do you ever think that things would just be better if Charles was here?

I used to throw this kind of stuff up on Facebook…the little moments that I wanted to record, but now, they just seem too sad for Facebook, so I don’t want them there. It was a night at our house. Just a crappy night. Mac was in a tizzy. Several things set him off, and … Continue reading

My family has had a lot of happy moments lately. I don’t have words for how thankful I am for those genuinely happy moments. But I’m just … Continue reading

My mother is Judith Louise McDonald Weems. My father is Charles Alvin Weems. My brother is Leigh Hayes Weems. My … Continue reading

July 25

Today is July 25th. I was born on this day 43 years ago to Judy and Charles Weems. They were first time parents, and I was a nightmare baby. They couldn’t sort out my formula, and because of that, my tiny stomach hurt all the time, so I’ve been told that I screamed, constantly, for … Continue reading
