Are You An Influencer?

I love to hear stories of positive influences! Love it, love it, love it…….I can remember talking to our daughter, Collins, about this topic when she was little. She asked me how people became famous….and my answer was long with examples, but I can remember distinguishing between people who are famous for the good they […]

Empty Nest

It is that time of year–Back to School. When the kids were home, I dreaded this time each year. …just not being in control of their schedule… much…time was more dictated by their school demands and sports.
