Find Yourself

  This time of year can be so busy with all the focus on holiday celebrations.  There is a tendency to focus on everyone other than one’s self.

Embracing Now

Never Ending

Every time there is change; change of season, taking on something new, or things turning out differently than expected, I am reminded to appreciate what I have, have done, have received, have invited into my life.
