I have been taking a break from blogging. Since walking away from unpleasant family dynamics last year, fake holidays like Mother's and the upcoming, Father's Day are stressful. My emotions are all over the place and social media makes it worse. Not just the rigamarole of ads, memes, and posts all focused on the glory … Continue reading Life is what happens when we are making plans
Next week is Passion Week. Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. There will be a liturgy every morning next week plus all of the services for Pascha.
