#Goals

This is a goals list I made for the Summer of 2005. I had to have written in the Spring of that same year. Thinking back to who I was back then I didn’t know much but I knew what I wanted. I put it down on paper. I told them to my closest friend in Georgia, I took them out of my heart putting it out there to the universe. Most importantly I offered them up to God. “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.”‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:3‬ ‭ In […]

Twenty, twenty…
Twenty, twenty…

Today after work the boys and I went to the cemetery to visit Ashley’s grave. We talked to Ashley, said the Lord’s prayer, sat with her and enjoyed the break in the clouds. (Ashley has a way of requesting some nice weather whenever I visit, at least momentarily). As we were walking back to the car Fischer and I commented on how it doesn’t seem like it was twenty months and Baker replies “it seems like 50 months.” I said, “ You know what buddy, sometimes it does feel way longer.” I don’t ever forget […]

3 Month Check-up
3 Month Check-up

Here I am, the three-month anniversary of Ashley passing, well at least it was the 3-month anniversary when I started this blog post. I was going to post last week on the 20th, but didn’t… Not really sure why. I’ve continued to write, so I have material but I haven’t posted much. There have been some technical difficulties with the host server, so I have not been able to post.  (If you have not been able to gain access to past blogs I am sorry but that’s why)  But even with those issues aside, I […]

What do I know- Part 2    (way too long blog post)
What do I know- Part 2 (way too long blog post)

As I continue to honor Ashley’s memory, I want to share some of my thoughts on grief. My wife had so many awesome connections in her life, that I know there is an army of people that have similar feelings to mine. Even if it’s a fraction of what I feel, I know it hurts. In “Part 1,” I alluded to the idea that my tips for dealing with grief aren’t working for me but might work for you. That’s a stupid statement. (As Baker’s voice is ringing in my head, “daddy you shouldn’t say […]

What do I know?
What do I know?

Ashley would often point out that I never take credit for my doctorate.  If it were up to her, all of my clothing and belongings would be embroidered or emblazoned with Dr. Taube. I don’t emblazon anything. This Christmas Ashley got me a journal embossed with Dr. Taube.  She told my sister in-law, “Mike never wants recognition for his accomplishments, I’m going to keep getting gifts with Dr. Taube on it.”  She went to say that I am a nerd that writes everything down when we go to doctor’s appointments, or meetings, or parent teacher […]
