Written by on April 13, 2012 in The Healing Journey with 21 Comments

Covert abusers can say the right things and they can be encouraging. That’s what’s so confusing. But when saying the right things and being encouraging is not followed through with action, then it’s just not real. To some people, saying something is as good as doing it. It doesn’t matter if they hadn’t actually done […]

Tomorrow my youngest, Brhiannon, is going to compete with her home school/cyber school team in the Lego Robotics competition in Philadelphia. Brhiannon is bright and artistic.
