As I’m growing older I’m learning much about myself that I had never really noticed. Recently I wrote about a difficult situation I’ve been “patiently” waiting through.

Family Fun!! Letter “D” Day!!

Time has gotten a little bit crazy here with spring coming our way, so “D” day didn’t really have an activity or an outing associated with it. Though I had planned for one, it just didn’t happen. We still had some yummy food, family movie time and creative time as well! My kiddos even tried …
