Have you ever had one of those days, or weeks, or months, or years, where everything you do seems to not work out as you expected? You lay your plans and try to implement them, and for some reason, no matter where you turn, it all falls apart.

I’ve had a few months like that, where it seemed that all the things I was carefully putting together were unraveling. As annoying as it’s been, it’s reminded me that control is just an illusion and that regardless of the best-laid plans, life will do what it wants.

I like to think of life as similar to riding down a river in a raft without a paddle! When things are good my raft is in the middle of the river, floating quickly and smoothly towards my destination. However, for no apparent reason the river may suddenly push it towards the edge, where the trees overhang and the rocks are plentiful.

As my raft continues to move, the low-hanging branches knock me around, we bang into rocks, and all I can do is hang on and try to stay...

It is with a heavy heart my wife and I share that her grandmother passed away. Some of you may have seen me post about her before. Grandma Muffin was a staple to this family; every birthday, holiday and special occasion was done at Grandma's along with delicious home made food. My wife and I along with her siblings have decided to continue with the meals at either our home or her mom's to keep the tradition alive.

I really wanted to share one of grandma's rules for her home. No matter your opinion, your place in the family or if you had one of the arguments during making hay that left you at odds with each other. You cross that threshold you were even, on common ground, you became the adult you are and minded your manners and grandma.
