Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

February one. Hmmm … I hate this month. Hate.this.month. #februaryhater. However, being on a path of healthy perspectives and rising above the emotions, I am compelled to not judge this month by what it is (a small, cold, dark month designed to test the will of even the strongest) but...

Notes from Steve

Encourage courage. This is kind of a theme for me lately. As I wrote last week I was skiing with my family last week in Steamboat Springs.*One of the family members hadn’t skied before and despite being drug on the ski lift and completely humiliated, he went back and skied...

Amy's Reflections

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” ~ Leo Tolstoy The other night I was attempting to prepare supper. We were going to have a simple supper of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I went to the store with Maleigha and picked up two cans of tomato...
