All You Need is a Little

Hi Everyone! 

My husband challenged me this past week about my attitude.  I was really defensive at first, you know how that goes.  Yet, the more I reflected on what he said,  the more I realized he was right.

Everyone Sees Mountains

Hi Everyone! 

One important lesson I’ve learned, with everything I’ve gone through, is not belittling other people’s problems when mine feel so huge.  Everyone see mountains.  Each challenge, each circumstance that happens in our lives that is out of our…

Unrecognizable 

Hi Everyone!
