Life Is Hard….So Who Are You Grateful For?

So, this is a hard one.

I am a very independent and a generally happy person, but life has intervened. I usually like all of the ups and downs life brings. It’s a challenge and I think of it as a test of my character as to whether I can be the best . . . → Read More: Life Is Hard….So Who Are You Grateful For?
