The Brief by Reagan

Every year when the first snow hits I tell myself next year I’m going to be better prepared and ready. This never happens. Right now the vehicle I use to move snow needs repaired and the plow itself needs some work. Not to mention I have all kinds of stuff...

Amy's Reflections

I recently celebrated a birthday and those close to me know that it didn’t go exactly as planned. I had envisioned a day filled with fun and family and maybe doing mostly what I wanted to do. At the time, it felt like one disaster after another. Maleigha about took...

Greg's Greetings

We are officially into the season of fall. Fall is often the favorite season for many. However, for others, this is a sign that winter is coming and thus a season you would rather skip. Like most things it is all in how you frame things. For example: Some dislike...

Amy's Reflections

I spent the last week in quarantine for the second time. The first time was because Shaila had tested positive for COVID and this time was because I tested positive for COVID. I have no idea where I picked it up from, but it has definitely kicked my butt this...
