Small Business Saturday – Shop With Purpose On this Small Business Saturday I like to suggest to shop with purpose.

Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.- Jesus of Nazareth-Matthew 7:13-14 This photo taken earlier this week helped me remember this parable Jesus used … Continue reading The Narrow Road
In one of the workshops they asked what is your greatest fear when your trying to accomplish a goal?

I … Continue reading Blog Life: Birthing A New Word

This is for all that has had … Continue reading Celebrating Life and Riding The Waves of Grief
This is basically how I felt yesterday after my dialysis treatment. It started as a good morning and even came in ten minutes early. It was the first time in a while that they weren’t ready for me. The only times I’ve waited was because a patient needed medical attention or they had a new patient orientation. We waited 40 minutes before I started my treatment. I let … Continue reading Being a Patient Means Being Patient
