Moment of Truth Monday

Depending on your definition of a morning person, I may or may NOT be one. I [might] prefer keeping talking to a minimum while my brain wakes up and my limbs respond to its corresponding signals.

T-shirts and a Contest [oh, my]

It started as a seed idea and turned into a full-grown dream. The #Sowkind Movement has roots embedded in a belief that our words have unique and distinct power. Though words are freely given to each of us, we have a responsibility to steward them well. When I first shared this dream, I invited you…… Continue reading T-shirts and a Contest [oh, my]

Size has been a point of conversation my entire life. Mind you, it’s not a topic I’ve initiated or enjoyed. Mere dislike of a subject doesn’t keep it at bay, unfortunately. In elementary school, I was often “volun-told” to crawl under the bathroom stall and unlock the door. Not only does my current germaphobe self…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
