Wednesday Badinage: June 28, 2017

“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were inContinue reading “Wednesday Badinage: June 28, 2017”

Monday Inspiration: June 5, 2017

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am on my lunch break, thinking back at something my mom suggested, which is entirely true.
