Yesterday as I was heading into therapy, I ran into an old friend. Side note, if you love your therapist as I do, and you tell anyone (that you like) who is looking for one to see her, chances are you’ll run into one of those people in the lobby of your therapist’s office at … More Joy
In late December, 2011, I decided I wanted to spend 2012 writing. I’d been itching to write and I found a platform, set-up a site, and I committed to try to blog each day.
