Tired…so Tired

I am so tired.

I go to work every day andContinue reading “Tired…so Tired”

It Gets Easier, Right? Wrong.

Hey God, this thing…this life lesson thing. I am trying really. I am trying to do that forgiveness thing too. I am not doing a good job of it at all. I get mad still…ok, I get angry. It is not fair.

The Power of Stopping

Photo by Melissa Askew on Unsplash I kept thinking I had forgotten something. You know that nagging feeling that something important is not getting done. Check the oven. No, it’s off.
