Just Heal

Day 3. I’ve become accustomed to trying to get through my days with a migraine. It sucks. My job as a childcare provider doesn’t come with a volume button, or a silent switch. (Of course they can’t help it) They … Continue reading

Negative Impact

We all need our moments to vent frustration. We all take those moments to gripe and complain. Cause sometimes moments suck. And we have friends who love us enough to give us that outlet, and we gladly return the favor. … Continue reading
