Posted by: Karen Ingalls Once I arrived home from the doctor’s office I knew that I wanted to journal my fears and questions, and what had been happening to my body for the past few months.

MishMash and Thoughts

Post (c) Doris McCraw According to Merriam-Webster the definition of mishmash is a confused mixture of things. It perfectly defines life right now. (No, I'm not talking politics.

I would even go so far as to say that I probably veered a lot of my … Continue reading It’s all in the interpretation!

Blessings in Disguise by Erin Farwell

This has been a rough summer. There were lots of good times, like visiting family in Michigan and hanging out with my daughter and younger sister on Amelia Island, Florida. But there were less happy times as well. We had to spend money on things we really didn’t want to. There was the cat that … Continue reading Blessings in Disguise by Erin Farwell


    Post copyright 2015 by Doris McCraw I thought I'd take a break from writing about individual women doctors and investigate a related topic, grooming the cat. If anyone has tried this exercise, you know it is filled with challenges, frustrations and maybe a bit of laughter. Okay a lot of laughter; after the … Continue reading GROOMING THE CAT by Doris


Post copyright 2015 by Doris McCraw I confess, but then you already know, I love research. If something catches my eye or ear, I want to follow up, know all I can.
