DISCOVERED. DISAPPOINTED… Tuesday with Ryan! … 8/3/2021

I typed “disappointed” into my phone. At least, I thought I did. When I looked back over it, “disappointed” was now “discovered”. That is more positive! But not quite the same. But I liked it and decided to leave both words. I left both words because it made me think of the Olympics. Those athletesContinue reading “DISCOVERED. DISAPPOINTED… Tuesday with Ryan! … 8/3/2021”

WAKING UP!… 7/29/2019 … Thursday

What will you do to earn a Gold Star or some other prize? I have blown bubbles with Super Bubble to win a t-shirt, raced to look up Bible verses to win a Bible, dressed up for Jazzercize to win an exercise shirt, and other sorts of crazy.

STEPPING OUT .. 7/15/2021 …Thriving on Thursday
