At Peace

I wrote a post earlier today, which got me thinking more about the situation I’m currently in with Elizabeth and Jasmine. I realized that I make things more complicated for myself than they actually are. I see a crisis where there isn’t one. I was sitting outside a few minutes ago, and saw a shootingContinue reading “At Peace”

Practicing Acceptance
