WHEW! 01.08.2021

I never saw the movie, “Waiting to Exhale,” but I know the feeling. Some events have such a build-up that when they finally happen, “whew! It’s over.” And then, it’s time to inhale and jump over the next hurdle. Today, I am thankful for those moments of rest between those hurdles letting us refill ourContinue reading “WHEW! 01.08.2021”
