Love and Gratitude

My to-do list is ever growing. I don’t ever have any meaningful interactions with my children … More Love and Gratitude

God Will Fight For You

UGH. That is a pretty accurate word to describe my last few weeks. I was hoping that I would be able to slow down a little and get back into a good routine but that hasn’t been the case.
