Five Minute Friday – Race…

Race… The person who crosses the finish line first isn’t always the person who wins the race. Sometimes there are other goals or rules that the runner doesn’t know, sometimes, you have to go around the track a second time. Ultimately, you have to know what game you’re playing to win!

The Little Things We Remember

I spent a lot of time being dropped off somewhere until 7th grade. In other words, I wasn’t home after school like a lot of people. My mother wasn’t neglectful, just busy. As a girl, most people loved to push me into the direction of “girl” things. Pink, yellow, sugar and spice and all things...

My time isn’t over. Progress is just slower than I anticipated. I want to succeed and the only way...

One Size Does Not Fit All

I grew up doing well in school, but not that into school. I was highly capable, finishing my homework within minutes of receiving the assignment, way before I left the classroom.
