So today was my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday. Because of her health issues we chose to not spend the evening with her like we normally do on her birthday. Instead, we made supper, packaged up servings for her along with cake, whip cream and strawberries and then delivered it to her...

Notes from Steve

A lot of times in life - we avoid situations that look imposing and not friendly. When faced with the choice, a human’s natural desire is to be safe and conservative. Know what you know, do what you do. But if we chose not to step into areas that may...

Amy's Reflections

This is the time of year when I start to feel like I have a plan. As we look towards Spring and the warmer temperatures, I start to embrace the need to organizing. I wouldn’t go so far as to say embrace spring cleaning but definitely a desire to set...
