Mindfulness is The Beginning of Change

After my “blah and tired” feelings the other day, y’all KNOW I started reflecting. First, though, I prayed to my Creator. I talked to Him about my feelings and asked for help, for insight and guidance. Last, I asked for an obedient spirit to do His will. These pics represent why I feel tired. I…

“Wherever I Go, Aaron Goes”

My sons Bryant (driver) and Aaron. My youngest son, Bryant, just got his driver’s license a few months ago.
