Welcome to family time in the Laurel Wood! My hope is that you may find a little humor, a few inspirational ideas and some encouragement that will refresh your soul as you navigate the craziness of the world we call “family”. I know that being Mom of a blended brood of boys ranging in ages from 11-20 makes for some sacred insanity on many days! And,precious and tender moments many other days. Each one priceless, each one a privilege, although some days just surviving it all can seem like the privilege! But, here, on this page, I hope that you will find a nugget or two of encouragement along the way.
