What a year, right? A TON has happened, and I cannot actually believe we’re in the last quarter of the year already. Not only did the year literally fly by, but it was loaded with …life. Life happened in full this year. In all the fear, riots, sickness, job losses, isolation, threats of sickness, lack…Read more Humbling times
To say that life has changed in the last two weeks would be an understatement. A more close-to-reality statement would be that all of life hit a major pause button.
