Thankful!

This week is Thanksgiving and it is the perfect time for us to remember all of our blessings. I cracked up recently when I saw a saying on Facebook that said something like, “Thanksgiving is the day we give thanks for all that we have.  And the very next day, Black Friday, is when we […]

The Morgan Definition

As we go through the month of November remembering all the things we are thankful for, I thought it was appropriate to reprint what I wrote for my family a few years ago.  The meaning still holds true today and I continue to be extremely grateful for my mom, sisters and the rest of our […]

Unfortunately, many of us believe that life […]

Seven years ago today, I was blessed with the birth of a son.  Jake was born on one of the coldest mornings we’ve ever had in December.  Thankfully, we were snug as a bug in a rug in an Austin, Texas hospital surrounded by nurses and doctors who knew what they were doing. The birth […]
