Several months ago, a group that I am closely involved with gathered for a meal and at the end, we challenged each other to grow outside of our normal comfort zones. The wonder (and agony at times) of being with people who know us so well, is that they can see our strengths but can… Continue reading imagine that!
A few days before Thanksgiving, I was out on a run and suddenly had a vision that I was up in a hot-air balloon, throwing gifts down on the houses of people as I floated by.

I started getting a stuffed-up head one day last week, and by the evening, I had a full-blown headache.
