If you have wondered how to explain angels to a 5 year old, watch a great grandma explain them to her great grandson, who totally adores his Boo. It was, perhaps , one of the simplest conversations I've ever witnessed. The type that stopped me cold in my tracks. There...

Talking to a leadership class about Lexie's Gift. At the end of the presentation, one of the students asks if she can talk to me outside the class. I'm ready for her to ask for help. Instead she says, "I don't know if you believe in angels, but I need to tell you, I fe...

We are asked to share a memory, and I've got a doozy. My memory make me smile and ugly cry, all at the same time. It goes like this.
