Lean Into It

How do you drive your vehicle? Have you noticed that when you are driving on a curve that speeding up just a little actually helps you keep control of your vehicle? You might not have noticed.

Treasured Moments

Treasured moments are etched in our memories and hearts, always valued dearly. There were a couple of times I crawled with my kids through our attic window to watch fireworks from the rooftop. Grateful for our country and our freedom and the many who have fought for it. Without those who have served in this capacity I would not have had those treasured memories on our roof. Those same children would not have their freedoms today to be uniquely who they were made to be as young adults. May all of you find treasured moments this year with a happy and safe Fourth of July.

It stinks, no getting around it. So, I get it, but these thoughts keep us sicker than we need to be, they keep us in a state of hopelessness which feeds the illness.
