Thank You, Thank You!

While I’ve always “self-checked” myself to make sure I am staying humble and remaining grateful for the good in my life, especially on days where I may be feeling a little run down, or sad, or self-pitying for whatever trivial reason arises- it was the first appearance of COVID in early 2020 that really made […]
