I am grateful for technology.. No REALLY. Even though I curse at my computer, my phone, my pad and all the other things that now take up space in my life that I didn’t think I had. Yes, technology has made my life easier…. and harder. It’s hard to ignore …

gratitudeburlap

Just like everyone else, I sometimes feel stuck. Sitting in mud. Not moving, and not wanting to move, just wishing the days by and then fretting about how fast they go by. It’s amazing how quickly a day goes when you haven’t done a thing. Getting “unstuck” is not always …
