Friday Philosophy Once More

It's been a long time since I've done a quotable quotes on a Friday. 😊 I thought it would be a wonderful start to the end of the workweek to have some uplifting thoughts shared here. The sun hasn't risen yet and, mentally, I'm at a beach. Ha! "The most important thing in the world … Continue reading Friday Philosophy Once More


We are doing our in-depth, pull everything out, and sort, and clean, and rearrange, and get new furniture version of Spring Cleaning. In other words, the house is chaotic right now.

"Never confuse a single defeat with … Continue reading Friday Philosophy ~ Tenacity
