There was a segment on the program, Sunday Morning, yesterday that brought me to tears. It was entitled "Late Bloomers" and as Jack and I watched it, we both were filled with deep emotion. For me it felt like hope and an affirmation that life is truly meant to keep expanding, as we ourselves are.… Continue reading Late bloomers…what kind of flower is this?!
Living in the present, looking forward to…
As Jack and I were driving home late last evening, we both noticed that our conversation was not very uplifting.
