Be The Change You Wish To See

Letting Go My heart is sinking. Every channel, every news report, it is the same thing. People are rising up in anger, frustration, sorrow, despair, desperately seeking justice and change. They want change, so many are so lost about how to get it. Justice. What is true justice for something like this? This isn't the... Continue Reading →

The Little Things

To some this will sound silly, to others, well you'll instantly relate. Today I received the best present I could have ever received from my sweet husband. No special occasion, just a regular day.
