Today I give…

Centering Thought: It takes nothing away from you to give out compliments to friends and people who aren't your friends yet, but it can bring joy to you and the recipient.

You have to witness their struggles to see what they are made of and... Continue Reading →

Living is…

Centering Thought: Today I am in the business of Living.   I've written before about surviving and living.
