Sleeping Like a Baby…with Colic and a Full Diaper

Have you ever had something in your life that felt so big and overwhelming, that the thought of talking about it made you feel like you might explode? Of course you have. We all have.

Pride – In the Name of Love

Recently, the couple at the center of this story told it, and I was there. I’m retelling it here, albeit without some specific, identifying details, because it isn’t my story.

Kloss 2 Cross Another Great Lake for Mental Health

They just celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary, and they have a five-year-old daughter. And now he’s set his sights on Lake Ontario.
