You Are a Star

You Are a Star!

I just recently watched a heart touching video that reminds me of how hard kids have it. Sometimes I forget that among all the great moments of being a kid, there are quite a few hard moments. Moments, that I’d soon forget. I send my kids off to school each day and hope and pray […]
