Wednesday Wisdom

“You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” C. S. Lewis This evening after my work day ended I looked around me and I liked what I saw. I have a view of trees from every window in my new little apartment. It’s almost…

The Sunday Post: Gray Skies

Woke up listening to the rain on the roof and the sound comforted me. Sunday mornings are for sleeping in and the sound of rain always seems to make that even cozier. But it was still early, not even seven yet, and I was awake. I’ve been waking early these days and can’t get back…
