Day of Thanks

This Thanksgiving we started a "tradition" of setting aside the "normal" turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes- and do something outdoors as a family.

Purpose

For too long I have drifted through the days, weeks, months being physically present but not emotionally. It has taken some life events to show me that my focus has been a source of the problem. I believed that because I had more time with my family- I was succeeding. I believed that because I… Continue reading Purpose
